A word of warning to buyers of this watch. Do not buy it if the seller cannot show you the movement photo. Always look for pictures of the movement. As shown here this is 100% authentic Rolex Calibre 1530 movement, 25 jewels. The caliber is not complicated. But what it is is robust, durable, and a long-lasting workhorse that provides accurate timekeeping for years to come. In other words, the characteristics that you expect from a Rolex movement. Just been serviced by a local watchmaker. Next service due in 5-10 years.

Widely regarded as a mountaineers watch this Rolex Explorer is also very comfortable in more formal occasions. It has that canny effect of looking great in sporting environments or say a dress watch as it will slip under most cuffs.

A new grey soft leather strap has been added to give this a modern twist. If you prefer black or brown leather please let us know shortly after checkout so we can swap before dispatch.

Once upon a time this Explorer was seen as the "plain Jane" of the Rolex range as the watch is super simple in design. However as taste change this model has gained popularity among the watch community. The watch is extremely versatile which obviously helps keeps the user / owner interested. Therefore a Nato strap can also supplied to give this watch another twist (and a bit of fun to change now and again) .

Overall a good condition vintage Rolex in original condition.
