1966 Rolex calibre: 1570 Case ref 1016

This all original gilt dial 1016 Explorer, is truly a spectacular watch! This is a very nice combo of the newly introduced cal 1570 with a gild dial. Later cal 1570’s come with mat dials where as this early transitional watch comes with the best of both worlds! This watch also comes with a Rolex box.

All original dial in good condition with some patina (Nice brown topical effect comes out in the sunshine) Original hands has the compound reenforced from the back to stabilise the original compound. 

Case has been restored with micro welding and in good condition. Movement is in very good condition was serviced by me in 2018.
