Rolex Explorer Ii “steve Mcqueen” Albino – Ref 1655 – 1979 – Beautiful Example.

£24,995.00

A rare and honest Explorer II “Steve McQueen”, featuring a perfect ‘MK IV’ matte dial with matching creamy tritium lume plots & hands

The 1655 Explorer II is one of the most collectible vintage Rolex’s on the market, famous for their big bold orange “Freccione” 24 hour hand.

A few of these “Steve McQueen’s” aged over time in such a way that the hand turned a ghostly white, earning the Albino nickname and matching the creamy Tritium lume perfectly.

In superb condition, this iconic sports watch from 1979 sports the correct Mk II dial with its famous “Frog’s Foot” Coronet and matching Mk II bezel.

These are extremely hard to find nowadays with its original ‘thin font’ stainless steel bezel (as most were routinely replaced by Rolex during service).

WATCH WILL BE FULLY INSPECTED, TESTED, CHECKED AND DETAILED BEFORE SOLD. ANY INSPECTION WELCOME.

12 MONTH WARRANTY SUPPLIED.
