Beautiful and rare in this condition, 1969 Rolex Explorer I reference 1016. The case and bezel have recently been polished and shows only very light wear. The original matte finish black 3, 6, 9 dial is excellent and shows little if any wear. The tritium indexes have aged to a warm creamy hue and the hands match perfectly. Equipped with a newer 12 link Oyster bracelet is excellent showing only very light wear for its age.
