12 Month Warranty

This watch is in excellent condition and was fully serviced in December 2022 at Louped.

The watch comes with the original green Rolex box, booklets, hang tags, calendar, previous service guarantee papers (15/01/07), and original Rolex dated guarantee papers (1998).

While the original Explorer traces its heritage back to 1953, the Explorer II was initially released in 1971. Designed for cave explorers, it features a 24-hour hand and bezel meant for users to keep track of time in dark environments with no access to sunlight.

Outside of its intended use, the Explorer II has become a more rugged watch than the more luxurious and recognisable GMT-Masters, making it a perfect everyday wearer for the watch lover with more discreet tastes. The 'five digit' Explorer II references were especially true to this philosophy, partly due to how their prices have remained consistently below the Submariners of the same era.

ROLEX

Known by many simply as "the Crown", Rolex has certainly done much to deserve its reputation. From its founding just over a century ago by a German immigrant in the UK, Rolex has grown to become an international behemoth, recognisable (and indeed visible) across the globe.

Compared to other modern watchmakers, Rolex is in the near-unique position where its vintage watches have developed an almost entirely distinct collector base. It's no surprise, however, given the diversity and iconic status of so many Rolex models. The vintage Rolex community has arguably brought vintage watch collecting into the mainstream by shedding light on the beauty of old, worn watches which had so long been ignored by most.
