This is a very rare example of the first variation of the first Explorer II reference 1655. It features the thin case, the MK I Stern Dial with the straight no-lume-dot second hand and the folded link 7836 bracelet. It has just been serviced and it is in pretty nice original condition with some signs of use all around and some small marks on the dial.
