This Rolex Ref# 1655 is accompanied with original Rolex box. This example is in excellent condition.

The 1655 Steve McQueen automatic watch, features a 38 mm case. This is a stainless steel example with black dial, and stainless steel bracelet. Functions include hours, minutes, seconds, bezel calibrated for 24 hour and date.

At the time of its launch, the watch was intended to be a 'tool' watch for cave explorers that after spending days in a cavern, couldn't tell if it was day or night outside. A problem that was easily solved by the 24-hour orange arrow-shaped hand that along with the 24-hour military time bezel, would help them identify day or night times with ease. Interestingly enough, the 24-hour hand was originally crimson red between 1971 and 1974 as seen on Rolex catalogs and advertisements from the era, but today, discolored by time, they appear orange to yellow and sometimes almost white as in the so called 'Albino' Explorers.
