The real watch Steve McQueen wore was the Rolex Reference 5512 Submariner, not the Explorer II most commonly believed to be his watch of choice. McQueen's Rolex can also be seen in his final film The Hunter.
"There's rare, the there's this: Rolex Sumbariner 6200 from 1954 with Explorer dial from the @phillipswatches Geneva Watch Auction One a few months back. Looking forward to see what they have in store for the second auction soon!" Photo taken by @thehorophile on Instagram, pinned via the InstaPin iOS App! http://www.instapinapp.com (10/10/2015)
