About

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.
