1972 Rolex "Commando"

Released in 1972, made solely for one year! The cheapest watch in the Rolex catalog at the time, it is now one of the rarest Rolex ever made. It features the coveted “Explorer 3,6,9″ dial & markers. Considered a spartan version of the famous Explorer, it is thinner as result of the manual wind movement. The watch is especially desirable for the Explorer style in conjunction with the bold “COMMANDO” on dial. Handsome aesthetic, collectible rarity.
