Lot 8: Starting price: € 5.000,- Price realised: € 19.000,-
Rolex Explorer II in unworn condition. What makes this watch so special is that it was presented to the successful Austrian footballer Mark Janko by FC Basel in 2016 for winning the Swiss championship. This is recorded with an elaborate engraving on the back cover. This LOT also comes with a signed FC Basel T-shirt of Marc Janko and 2 VIP tickets for the EURO qualifying match Austria vs Sweden on 20.06.2023.
The Rolex Explorer II is made for the places of the world that hardly anyone will ever see. Its additional hand indicates the time in 24-hour intervals, so that cave or polar explorers can distinguish between day and night.
The Oyster case is a milestone in the history of watchmaking. Invented by Rolex in 1926, it was the world's first waterproof watch case. Bezel, caseback and winding crown are screwed watertight to the middle section. Form and function are perfectly matched - typically Rolex.
Robust & sought after
For a Rolex to retain its beauty and functionality in extreme conditions, Rolex uses its own stainless steel alloy - Oystersteel. It is particularly resistant to corrosion and distinguished by its special shine. Oystersteel belongs to the steel grade "Stainless Steel 904L" which is normally used in extreme areas such as the aerospace and chemical industries.
