Rolex. A stainless steel automatic bracelet watch
Model: Explorer
Reference: 6610
Date: Circa 1958
Movement: 25-jewel Cal.1030 automatic, adjusted to 5 positions and temperatures, No.N84****
Dial: Black, luminous baton hour markers, Arabic numeral quarters, gilt outer minute divisions, gilt Mercedes hands with luminous inserts, centre seconds
Case: Polished tonneau form, screw down back and crown, inside back date coded I.1958, No.359***
Strap/Bracelet: Brushed steel 78360 Oyster link
Buckle/Clasp: Signed folding clasp

Size: 36mm

The 6610 had a relatively short production period in the history of the Explorer model running for approximately 5 years. As the precursor to the celebrated 1016, the 6610 is a popular choice for collectors as it presented the desirable slimmer calibre 1030 movement and offered a more streamlined timepiece.
