  • Why It Matters
  • Details

Offered here is a superb example of the rare Rolex Explorer I Gilt Dial Reference 6610 manufactured circa 1957.

The reference 6610 is a very collectible early Rolex 36mm tool watch with its original gilt dial. The dial is beautiful with the radium lume on the 3-6-9 in original and superb condition and the gilt lettering is in unmarked.

The hour and minute hands match, and the second hand has been replaced at some time in its past. The Gilt dial with its single swiss at 6 o’clock has aged consistently and the whole vintage feel is topped off with a correct domed Plexiglass crystal. The case is in very good condition with strong equal lugs and the folded link Oyster bracelet reference 7836 with matching end links has minimal stretch and enhances the appearance of this vintage beautiful sports watch. The original Rolex riveted bracelet is also included.

This example has the correct Gilt dial for its 266--- serial number. The 6610 Explorer bridged the gap between a dress and sports watch, without having the crown guards or rotating bezels found on other Rolex sports models. The Explorer 6610 is becoming harder to acquire in good condition and seem to be a hidden gem amongst Rolex vintage collecting.

The watch comes with its Rolex vintage box, service pouch, Explorer cigarette card and original riveted bracelet.
