1983 Rolex Explorer II Steve McQueen Ref. 1655
Steve McQueen - With its unique dial configuration the Steve McQueen Explorer is different from all other Rolex sports models. Initially introduced for Explorers the orange hand in combination with the 24h bezel helps to distinguish between night and day. This beautiful example bears a MK5 dial which is correct for the early 80s and has a beautiful vivid patina on lume and hands. We still don't know why it is named after Steve McQueen but it definitively adds to its iconic status, after all he was the King of Cool. A very attractive example of the 1655 in beautiful honest condition.
