Footnotes

  • The 6610 had a relatively short production period in the history of the Explorer model running for approximately 5 years. As the precursor to the celebrated 1016, the 6610 is a popular choice for collectors as it presented the desirable slimmer calibre 1030 movement and offered a more streamlined timepiece.
