We are proud to present the iconic Rolex Explorer II ‘Orange Hand’ vintage watch for sale.
Following on from the success of the Explorer, in 1971 Rolex decided to add another feature to their sports watch; this time in the shape of a 24-hour indicator hand. They also increased the case size to 39mm and fitted the watch with a fixed bezel for spelunkers to indicate whether it was AM or PM. The extra hand was very large and luminous and was originally red but over time turned orange, hence the “orange hand” nickname.
This version comes set in an unpolished stainless steel Oyster case and features a MK V original dial. It is black with contrasting white minute markers and additional Tritium vintage aged creamy markers at 2.5mins and 5mins. The white hands are also fitted with matching aged lume and is one of the most legible watches Rolex ever produced. The dial is finished off with the date feature at 3 o’clock and the striking Orange hand to indicate day/night. The watch is fitted with acrylic plexi-glass and is powered by the calibre 1575 automatic movement and comes fitted on a stainless steel Oyster link bracelet with a folding clasp (modern version fitted during service).
Originally from circa 1981 and in fine, unpolished condition for its age. This Explorer II is sold with a 12-month warranty from SWC and would be a great piece for any Rolex enthusiast.
First time Omega purchase. Competitive price. Very quick and good communication. Stunning watch delivered in excellent condition. Would certainly buy from this company again.
