Vintage Rolex Explorer 1016 RAF Provenance! -  Well what can we say about this very very special watch. The original owner purchased the watch in 1961 from the RAF NAAFI Store while posted in Singapore on a two and a half year tour of duty. The current owner has been kind enough to provide us with a letter of provenance, a photograph of him receiving an award and a copy of his 33 years of service in the RAF and where posted. The Explorer 1016 is a true iconic sports watch wore by Sir Edmund Hillary in his expeditions. The watch is in fantastic condition and its dial has aged to a warm cream on the markers and numerals, its also fitted on a correct 7836 folded link bracelet. 
As you can see from the images its accompanied with its original Pyramid top inner box and the rarely seen Explorer cigarette inner card. Where do you find watches like this these days with all this provenance!!!
