  • Details

Offered here is a superb example of the rare Rolex Explorer Date Steel and Gold 5701 manufactured circa 1959.
The majority of 5701 Explorer Dates were sold in Canada and other Commonwealth territories - this makes finding good original examples like this one increasingly difficult.
This example has the correct white dial for its 515--- serial number. The 5701 Explorer bridges the gap between a dress & sports tool watch, without having the crown guards or rotating bezels found on the sports models. The yellow gold sword shaped indices really make this 5701 stand out from other Rolex sports vintage models. The Explorer Date 5701 is becoming harder to acquire in good condition & seem to be a hidden gem amongst Rolex vintage collecting.
The condition of this vintage steel and gold Explorer Date overall is good. The case appears to have been lightly polished in the past, but still retains strong equal lugs with the brushed finish to the top edges remaining well defined, the yellow gold bezel ring has no major dings or scratches & compliments the appearance of this piece. The white dial is in outstanding condition with no apparent flaws with the appearance of the hour markers all matching, the yellow gold sword hands are in very good condition and all 3 of them have started to age consistently. The Plexiglass is the correct, slightly chamfered type for this model and is also free of any detrimental scratches or marks.
The watch comes on a Rolex two tone, steel and gold Oyster bracelet which features matching end links – it is also showing only light wear & minor stretch.
