Rolex Explorer 1016 - 1972

Here it is, folks.  In the world of vintage Submariners, it doesn't get much cooler than a Red Sub.  Finding honest, original examples in decent condition is getting harder by the day, but that's exactly what we've got here: a stunning Mark V version with a spectacular dial and matching handset.  The case is in great shape overall, with no signs of over-polishing, and it comes strapped to a heavy duty Oyster bracelet. 

If you've been looking for a great Red Sub, look no further!


Steel Case is approximately 36mm (excluding the crown).

Overall condition: Case is in excellent condition overall, with very sharp lugs.  Dial and handset are genuine Rolex service replacements and are in like new condition.  Original signed crown.
