Up for sale a gorgeous Rolex 1016 matte dial Explorer with a charming patina.
The dial is in superb vintage condition with no visible marks and a uniform colouring throughout. The seconds hand may have been colour matched/relumed in the past, but looks good.
The case is nice and even, it has light wearing marks as expected but overall a good thickness and shape.
The later oyster bracelet is tight in in very good shape.
The later 60s matte dial explorers are getting hard to find in good shape, and you rarely ever get them in such a beautiful condition such as this!
I would not rest on you laurels for a nicer one to come along.
