The Steve McQueen Rolex Explorer II (AKA Orange Hand, AKA Freccione Era Explorer) is one of our favorite watches of all time. There are a few reasons for this. First, it was the very first iteration of a true classic and one of our favorite modern day pieces, the Rolex Explorer II. Second, its association with Steve McQueen (actor, racecar driver, and all around cool guy), is meaningful because it is one of the purest examples of celebrity impacting watch prices.
The McQueen Explorer is by no means a complicated piece, and even the movement itself is nothing extraordinary, and yet this continues to be one of the most sought after vintage watches in the world. Finally, this is a great example of how the little things make a big difference in watches.
