The Explorer II 16570 and was launched in 1989. Evolutions were soft, with most of the features found on the previous 16550 retained.

It first appeared with a new movement, the Calibre 3185, and then with its evolution, the calibre 3186.

The white “polar” dial was equipped with black-outlined hands and markers (no longer silver coloured).

Apart from the evolution of the movement, the addition of the Rolex-engraved réhaut and a change from tritium to LumiNova and then SLN, the 16570 remained the same for 22 years – available with a black or white dial.

This Rolex Explorer is in fantastic, original condition. This is one of those "Buy the best example you can" kind of watches.

The overall condition of the watch is rated 9/10. Whilst it does reflect minor signs of wear, we believe the watch to be unpolished. The tritium dial is spotless and the hands and markers starting to fade into an off-white colour.

Supplied with its original box, user manual and undated warranty papers. 

Bracelet Length =  21.5cm. No additional links are included.
