Rolex Explorer Dress 1963

This reference 5501 ROLEX EXPLORER Super Precision vintage dress watch is an amazing looking example. The 34mm. steel and 14k. gold case is not over-polished, just normal marks from use. The solid gold bezel and ROLEX crown provide an attractive contrast against the dial. You would not know this honeycomb black dial was restored. This re-dial remains faithful to the original with gold gilt print and retains the raised gold toned arrow markers and Arabic numerals and the original raised honeycomb pattern. We are not completely certain, but this may be an original dial which was re-lacquered at some time. It looks amazing. The Dauphine matching hands are original. The fine ROLEX automatic cal. 1030 butterfly movement was recently cleaned and accurate. The dress Explorers were mainly sold only in Canada and the U.K. We are finding fewer of these vintage EXPLORERS these days. Get a prime example while you can. The serial is 368xxx. This watch is an eye magnet!
