Rolex Explorer 6610 Red Depth

ULTRA RARE ┬áRolex Explorer 6610 from 1956. In itself this early Explorer reference is quite rare, but with RED DEPTH indication it instantly becomes a grail watch. Only very few exist, certainly in this condition with beautiful original dial which is turning into tropic as well. The markers and rare gilt hands with lollipop seconds are still the original radium. The steel case is in excellent condition with fat lugs and the reference and serial numbers legible (no 114xxx). The Cal 1030 movement is working perfectly and has just been serviced. It takes a 20mm bracelet, a rare rivitted stretch 7206 in this case (from 1960). It futher comes with it’s original inner & outer period box. Not much else to say, certainly a good investment piece but foremost a stunning classic piece, one of Rolexes cleanest designs.
