Our opinion: A model apart from the Rolex collection with this watch designed for speleologists. Hence its 24-hour bezel, which is not directional in order to indicate to speologists whether it was 8 a.m. or 8 p.m. in an ultra-dark cave, for example. Same movement base as the gmt master I with the particularity of this large orange luminescent tritium hand indicating the time in 24 hours. A mythical little-produced watch and here in its very first version with mk1 dial, orange freccione hand and ultra rare straight hand. THE very first 1655 ever produced which makes it a historic model in the professional vintage Rolex collection of large collections that will find its place in any serious collection. Watch also delivered with its box and papers.
