|Model||Explorer Special Reconnaissance Regiment (SRR)|
Here we have a rare limited edition Rolex Explorer supplied direct by Rolex only to serving members of the British Army’s Special Forces. The watches were made available only to the Special Reconnaissance Regiment (SRR), a division of the UK Special Forces (UKSF) that work together with the Special Air Service (SAS) and Special Boat Service (SBS). The regiment conducts a wide range of classified activities related to covert surveillance and reconnaissance missions worldwide and the secrecy afforded them is even higher than other areas of the Special Forces. They are an elite regiment that go through a grueling selection process to enter.
More about these special elite military individuals here:
This watch is a low issue number from the one off supplied batch of limited edition Explorers.
All watches were supplied direct from Rolex to the SRR and feature a Rolex engraved SRR regiment emblem case back together with the engraved issue number.
The original Rolex guarantee card states they were directly supplied to the Special Reconnaissance Regiment by Rolex UK and not via a dealer.
In addition they were supplied with a joint Rolex/SRR Regiment Issue Certificate detailing the issue number and completed with serving members name, rank and signed by the Regiment’s senior officer.
This watch was serviced by Rolex UK in March this year and is unworn since, with all service stickers still intact. It thus benefits from the remainder of the Rolex 2 year International Guarantee and comes with a new Rolex Service International Guarantee card as well as all the original boxes, booklets, hang tags and the important Special Forces certificate and Special Forces supplied original Rolex Guarantee card.
The watch itself is in MINT condition.
This is a rare piece with incredible provenance and comes with everything supplied to the Special Forces member from new.
These watches rarely come to market as the owners need to be granted specific permission from their superiors to sell and the Special Forces has started to really clamp down on the sale of these watches. I have been granted permission to sell this watch on behalf of the existing serving owner but obviously the important details are pixelated below.
