Our Opinion

We are delighted to offer this extremely special limited-edition military Rolex Reconnaissance Regiment EXPLORER II that is practically new old stock N.O.S condition.

It is believed only 139 of these Rolex S.R.R pieces were produced and all of them were sold to serving officers of the regiment through Rolex London.

We believe the example that we have on offer, to be the only S.R.R Explorer II currently for sale on the open market.

SRR Reconnaissance Regiment History And Explorer II Details

This military Explorer is accompanied with its Rolex Certificate/letter dated September 2007 stating this example is number 43 of the 139 Limited-Edition run for the Special Reconnaissance Regiment. The Certificate/letter also states that the recipient of the watch was a serving officer in the regiment. The provenance is also backed up with the Rolex International guaranteed card confirming the watch was issued to the Special Reconnaissance Regiment.

This rare military Rolex was purchased from the original owner, and we believe has never been worn. The case backs of these watches were engraved with the cap badge of the Special Reconnaissance Regiment and the individual issue number of the watch.

A unit of the British Armed Forces, the Special Reconnaissance Regiment was created in 2005. Its roots derive from the 14 Intelligence Company, also known as "The Det".

Technical Details
'SRR' Explorer II, Ref. 16570
Limited edition stainless steel with date, 24-hour indication and bracelet made for the Special Reconnaissance Regiment Circa 2007.

In Summary

This is a very rare and extremely collectable black dial S.R.R Explorer II. That is accompanied by all its original Rolex accessories and still has in place its factory-applied protective stickers to the case.

As you can appreciate with such a rare Rolex ‘RSS’ Explorer we have reached out to our trusted and recognised leading authorities in the Rolex military community. They all concur with our understanding and findings of this Rolex military watch.
