Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36 OP36 Blue Dial 116000 - 2020
Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36 OP36 Blue Dial 116000
The perfect under-the-radar Rolex piece, this 116000 successfully circumvents the at-times negative connotation surrounding Rolex, while providing the same Rolex ownership experience, build quality and timeless aesthetic. At 36mm, it’s also extremely wearable for both guys and gals. The OP series has a special place in our hearts as they hark back to the days when Rolex was worn as a proper tool watch. The proportions are perfect, it's simple in design, not too polished. Just as a Rolex should be.
This particular piece is a little bit special, as the owner decided to create his own blue-dialed Explorer 36 by swapping the hands with genuine Rolex Mercedes hands. This mod may not be to everyone's taste, but we absolutely love it.
The original hands are also included within the package, so it can be swapped back at anytime should the new owner prefer this.
In addition to the Mercedes hands, the original owner also had the AD add in an Easylink extension to the clasp to make his ultimate OP. Think it's probably our ultimate OP36 as well!
This one-owner piece was purchased locally in 2020 and presents in TZ good condition. The case, bracelet and buckle shows some light desk diving marks. The grading has been moved from near-mint to good according to our TZ scale due to extremely small pin dents on the side of the case, possibly from being up against a bracelet, as well as a tiny ding on the upper left bevel. Both hard to spot unless they're in the right light and you're studying is really closely, but we like to be totally transparent. Doubt most people would notice. Please see images for full condition details.
Comes with outer sleeve, outer box, inner box, card holder, instruction booklet, guarantee manual, hang tag, spare link, warranty card dated 01/20/2020 and original hands.
