Matthew's Note

Many Rolex collectors refer to the Explorer II reference 16550 as a transitional model, as it was developed after the reference 1655 and before the reference 16570. Produced for a short time between 1985 and 1989, this Rolex Sport watch is hard to come by making it a rare collector's item. This example is beautiful Rolex Explorer II from the mid 1980's with an exceptional Creme Rail Dial. The early examples had a beautiful cream colored dial instead of the later more common white dial. The case on this watch is superb and we believe to be unpolished. The original cream tone dial is pristine with original white hour markers and hands that pop against the cream tone. The watch still has its original squared or ‘thick’ font bezel, which is unique to the 16550. On top of the incredible condition, this example includes its original inner and outer Rolex box's, original booklets and papers as well as its original sales receipt from 1987. The watch was originally sold for $1160 plus tax!
