Rolex Stainless Steel Explorer, Reference 6610
LOT 167 - 10 May The Geneva Watch Auction: ONE
A superbly rare, highly desirable, and early variant of the iconic Rolex Explorer model, this example’s most prominent feature is a coveted depth rating, made even more desirable with its red-colored printing, found above the dial’s center.
The galvanized black dial, with gilt lettering and minute track has aged in a consistent and pleasing manner over the course of its nearly 60-year life. It’s fitted with its rare and original, elongated gilt hour and minute hands, and gilt seconds hand.
One of the most exciting and complete examples of this reference to appear, the present lot includes its original box, hangtag, guarantee papers, and chronometer certification. In overall excellent condition, it is a trophy for any vintage Rolex sport watch collector.
