Rolex Explorer Gilt Dial 1016


We are super delighted to be able to offer, what is arguably, one of the nicest gilt Explorers we have seen for a long time; this beautiful condition reference 1016 is about as good as it gets! The dial just pops, such a warm look to it. The case is in great condition with strong lugs. The lume on the 3-6-9 is still very clean with a warm patina with no hint of green. The dial is completely fantastic  - like a black mirror. The hands match with just that little atiititude and the whole effect is topped off with a cool domed acrylic crystal. The solid link bracelet has minimal stretch and has a M6 clasp and 558 endlinks. The watch has been fully serviced by our watchmaker and will come with strap of your choice from our web store*.
