Rarely seen with such immaculate original documents, and known to Rolex fans as the 'Blackout', this Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer features an unusual dial variation, with the arabic numerals at three, six and nine partly blackened and contrasting against the white gold tritium hands and silver text. Considered to be highly collectible timepiece, this watch and its provenance have been well cared for over the years and comes with its original box, original warranty certificate, both swing-tags full complement of Rolex booklets and calendar cards from that era.

Originally purchased through Bucherer jewellers in September 1991. Popular for it's durability and timeless design this Rolex Explorer is in Mint condition and has a stainless steel case, bezel and oyster bracelet.

I always wanted a yellow faced Breitling Sea Wolf 2, but not quite enough to buy one new, when I saw the one on watches.co.uk at the price and in mint condition I bought it straight away, I had some doubts initially as it was used BUT it seriously was MINT condition, from now on all my watches will be bought through these guys and as a collector its nice to know I can part ex etc... so personally a very happy customer.
