1984 Rolex 1016 Explorer matte dial unpolished

The 20th century marks the century of constant competition for achievements, the main questions of the time were: who will be the first man on the moon, who will go to the deepest seas, who will climb the highest mountains? Expeditions were led worldwide to be the first to accomplish these challenges.

Rolex, faithful to its principles and always in search of performance, has known how to associate itself with great historical events. This is how the Rolex Explorer came close to the expedition of Mount Everest in 1952 and 1953. Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay became the first climbers to reach the summit of Mount Everest, making the Explorer & the Smith Everest the first watches to reach the summit of Mount Everest.

The history of the Explorer began in the early 1950s and has remained unbroken in the Rolex catalog ever since. Of all the Explorer variants, the reference 1016 has a special place in the heart of watch collectors.

Faithful to the explorer line, the reference 1016 features the iconic 3-6-9 that shares a homogeneous, creamy bright matte black dial, perfectly conserved with its nice tritium indexes. Like a perfect swiss-knife, this beauty can go casual or dressy, depending on your mood. Whether it’s under a dress shirt or with a t-shirt and jeans, this watch is incredibly versatile.

The key points of this watch are the overall condition of the dial, the case and the bracelet.

The watch is fitted with an amazing condition original Oyster bracelet reference 78360 and its 12 links.
