Rolex Explorer II – Ref. 1655 – Steve McQueen – Freccione – orange hand – 1974

1974 ROLEX Explorer II Frog Foot – Ref. 1655 aka „Freccione“, “orange hand” or „Steve McQueen, who has never worn one”.

Super cool MK2 Version with original Tritium dial made by Stern. Serial number 3.6 mil.

Actually, this reference was worn by Sir Edmund Hillary and Reinhold Messner.
Cool enough for me!

The case of this watch has been professionally re-finished by its last owner during a Rolex service in 1995, and has only been worn occasionally ever since. This MK2 was fitted with an original Rolex Furnitura bezel and a new oyster bracelet during the service in 1995, done by a Rolex service Center in Frankfurt, Germany.

Comes with a new movement service and vintage Rolex box incl. vintage hang tag.
