As you can see presented in excellent condition is this Black dial Explorer II. This modern classic Rolex is in beautiful original condition and with the desirable 'Swiss' only dial.
The caliber 3185 chronometer movement is in superb condition and is keeping excellent time. This movement has been well cared for over the years and has just been serviced. The watch winds and sets smoothly as you would expect.
This watch is one of the limited runs which featured the 'Swiss' only dial in production for only a year. Before 1998, the marker at 6 0’clock on a Rolex dial would typically have a Tritium indicator of the nature “Swiss - t < 25”. The move to Luminova saw this replaced by the word “Swiss” at 6 0’clock. This happened in 1998/99. Super Luminova saw this replaced to “Swiss Made” from 1999 on wards. Complete with the correct 78790 oyster bracelet and 501B end links. Finding a really nice Explorer 2 'Swiss' dial is becoming increasingly difficult making them very collectable. A future classic for sure.
