We are proud to present theandampRolex Explorer II Orange Hand for sale.
Following on from the success of the Explorer, in the 1971 Rolex decided to add another feature to their sports watch; this time in the shape of a 24-hour indicator hand. They also increased the case size to 39mm and fitted the watch with a fixed bezel for spelunkers to indicate whether it was AM or PM. The extra hand was very large and luminous and was originally red but over time turned orange, hence the “orange hand” nickname.
The dial (MK V) is clean and black with contrasting white minute markers and additional Luminova markers at 2.5mins and 5mins. With the hands also being fitted with Luminova this in one of the most legible watches Rolex ever produced. The watch is fitted with a polished plexi-glass and is powered by the calibre 1575 automatic movement and comes fitted with a stainless steel Oster link bracelet with a folding clasp.
Originally from circa 1977 and in fine condition considering its age. The watch also comes with previous Rolex service paperwork dated 1986 and 1989.
we purchased this from the original owners family.
This would be a great piece for any Rolex enthusiast.
