A wristwatch is always the perfect present to celebrate an important event, whether it is an 18th birthday, a degree or a wedding. It becomes even more so when to be celebrated is the conquest of three very important football trophies as Champions League, European Super Cup and World Cup for Club. Is this the case of this special Rolex Explorer reference 114 270 in stainless steel. The Explorer history dates back to the references 6098 and 6150 in 1952, followed by the 6610 three years later. The reference 1016 arrived in 1959, the following ref.14270 and then the reference 114 270 presently offered. Offered full set with also its original tag, this stainless steel wristwatch is sold in almost NOS condition. The DNA of the history of the model is undeniably present, but is a bit re-interpreted with a more modern twist, noticeable especially in the dial design, with its black lacquered configuration, big baton indexes and arabic numerals where stands the A.C Milan logo with its red-black-white colors commingling. This very watch is the number 54 of a very limited edition of 150 piece especially made to celebrate the victory of the seventh Champions League, the fifth European Super Cup and the World Cup for Club of Milan’s history, demonstrated by the engraving on the case back decorated with the stylization of the 3 cups won and the date 2007. The perfect piece for lovers of the oldest team in Milan.
