Pure Rolex Steve McQueen
50 years after his death, Steve McQueen is still an unrivalled style icon. So far, no other person has made masculinity, authenticity or casualness statement as much as McQueen. He was best known for his absorption in masculine motorsport and western films. His longstanding passion for motorsport was the engine behind his preference for durable tool watches. During his time, it was clear that Rolex had a unique liking for McQueen. No other watch stood for more reliability, precision and robustness as the traditional Geneva manufacturer.
The Rolex Steve McQueen 1655 Watch
In additional to his love for the Rolex Submariner which was in 2018 almost auctioned off by Phillip’s auction house, Steve McQueen was also seen wearing more of the Rolex Explorer 2 which was manufactured between 1971 and 1985. Although there is no photo of him wearing it, the Explorer was one of his favourite models. As a result, it was named the Steve McQueen Explorer.
