Maunder Watch Co have for sale a Rolex Explorer II ‘Steve McQueen’ Ref. 1655.

The reference 1655 was given the nickname ‘Steve McQueen’ after Rolex’s 1970s advertising campaign and was initially designed for cave divers. The fixed 24 hour bezel and large orange GMT hand coupled with the application of tritium luminescence provided the ideal tool watch for daring explorers.  This example has a Mk1 dial that is the most sought after paired wit the straight second hand the dial ha a wide cornet and rounded foot on the R OF Rolex, the added T Swiss T and the centering of the lettering leads us to believe this watch is a Mk 1 dial.
