Description

Waterproof: Yes

Very nice example built in 1971.
Italians call it "Freccione", contraction of "Freccia" (arrow in Italian) and "Arrancione" (orange in Italian).
It is also called the Steve McQueen, although there are no pictures of him wearing the watch.
It appeared in 1971 with the main function of being able to read the time in a 24-hour time zone, even in the darkness of a cave on the wrist of a caver. Without daylight, he could tell whether it was 10 o'clock or 10 o'clock.
The steel bezel is therefore fixed and the orange hand makes one turn of the dial in 24 hours.
The steel bracelet, reference 78360 with fixings n°580 is from 1991.
The case is thick, sharpened and lets appear the chamfers, guaranteeing a very unpolished watch. The finishing is satin, characteristic of rolex, and the bevels are pointed.
The 1655 will be replaced in 1985 by the reference 16550.
