This beautiful and very rare vintage Rolex Explorer is an Explorer date circa 1960. With correct period jubilee bracelet stamped I/64. Numbers on the case match 1960 stamped inside inner case back. Original 1530 calibre butterfly movement. The entire watch is original with no parts replaced but the dial originally would have had 'oyster perpetual date explorer, precision' printed on the dial but has since faded dramatically, leaving only the raised Rolex in silver along with the original radium dagger hands & hour markers. The case numbers are visible under a loupe and are 100% correct & original just the same as the case back. They are both slightly rubbed from the bracelet end links which is a common occurrence, however under a loupe you will see the 5700 and correct period serial number with registered design. Any other vintage Rolex specialist will confirm these numbers if you need. We have many additional photographs for serious buyers available on request.
Price is reflected because of the faded dial, if it were perfect it would be a £5000-£6000 watch. But still retains complete originality. This model is later on in the 60's and 70's became the airking date which shared the same reference number. Much like the 5500 airking and explorers. Only difference is earlier serial numbers, production years and style of dial.
