Rolex Explorer 1 c.1978.
The 36mm case is a vintage favorite, reference number 1016.
The watch has been completely serviced by our own in-house Rolex trained watchmaker and comes with a two year guarantee. The service that was undertake included a complete disassembly of the Rolex 1560 automatic movement, cleaning, a new reversing wheel driving wheel, reassembly, lubrication, timing, refinishing the case, re-luming the hands, a new crystal, new gaskets, pressure testing, and an aftermarket leather strap (the strap can be swapped out for a different colour/style if wanted).
This is a beautiful watch and currently on display at our Taupo store, however, we're more than happy to send it to our Christchurch store for viewing if desired.
I've done my best to get a photo of the case reference number, but due to an aftermarket metal bracelet having once been fitted, the area between the lugs is fairly scratched and the case number may be hard to make out.
Please note that this watch is over 40 years old and it has been worn for most of its life. Although we've done our best to refinish the case back to factory specifications, there are still some small dings and scratches too deep to remove. I've done my best to capture any defects in the case in the photos attached.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
