Rolex Ref. 6610 Explorer

1956

Considered by many to be the predecessor to the many later versions of the Rolex Explorer, the Ref. 6610 was released in 1956 with Rolex’s inaugural in-house movement, the caliber 1030. Fitted with a glossy black dial with gilt printed indices and luminous 3-6-9 numerals, this wristwatch sets the design template for which many of the later explorer models would follow. This reference also features the now ubiquitous Mercedes-style hands, with a rare seconds hand in white painted finish.
