This is a rare CANADIAN version ROLEX EXPLORER PRECISION dating to 1965. These ROLEX watches are commonly referred to as the “Dress Explorers”; The correct reference 5500 stainless steel ROLEX OYSTER case dates the watch to 1965. As many know the reference 5500 (steel) and 5501 (two-tone) also appear in the ROLEX AIR-KING line of watches from the same era. The EXPLORER versions are (of course) much rarer of the two types. The case on this EXPLORER measures 34mm. and houses a recently cleaned and overhauled (reliable) caliber 1530, rotor, automatic winding movement; which is keeping accurate time. The dial is completely original, with only very minor spotting. The original raised gold markers and original Dauphine hands with sweep second complete the look.
