Rolex Explorer II Ref. 16570


Pre-Owned Rolex 40mm Explorer II, White Dial, Oyster Bracelet, Ref. 16570

The Rolex Explorer II was first introduced in 1971 as a tool watch designed for cave explorers and adventurers who needed a timepiece that could withstand extreme conditions. The initial model, the Ref. 1655, featured a 24-hour bezel and an orange 24-hour hand, which made it easier to distinguish between day and night in environments where sunlight is scarce. Since then, the Explorer II has undergone several updates and improvements, including the addition of a new movement, a larger case size, and a more refined design. Today, it remains one of Rolex’s most iconic and sought-after models, known for its durability, accuracy, and distinctive style.

The Rolex Explorer II 16570 – a timeless masterpiece that seamlessly blends style, functionality, and precision. With a 40mm stainless steel case and a fixed 24-hour bezel, this timepiece is designed for those who seek adventure and elegance in one package. The white dial of the Explorer II 16570 serves as a canvas for legible timekeeping, featuring luminous hands and hour markers that ensure clear visibility in any lighting condition. The dedicated GMT hand, also illuminated for easy reading, allows you to track a second time zone effortlessly. The date reference adds practicality to this already exceptional watch. Driven by the self-winding 3185 caliber movement, the Rolex Explorer II 16570 offers unmatched accuracy and reliability. The movement’s precision ensures that you’re always on time, no matter where your journeys take you. Completing the package is the stainless steel Oyster bracelet, a hallmark of Rolex’s iconic design. The bracelet is not only a statement of durability but also a symbol of comfort for extended wear. The folding fliplock clasp ensures a secure fit, making it an ideal companion for your active lifestyle. With its classic design and cutting-edge features, the Rolex Explorer II 16570 is more than a watch – it’s a testament to your unwavering pursuit of excellence and exploration.

Rolex is recognized throughout the world not only as a brand associated with luxury, but as a watch that is both luxurious and precise.  For Rolex, this hard-won and well-deserved recognition was never in doubt.  The founder, Hans Wilsdorf named the company Rolex to be pronounceable in any language, as he anticipated the acclaim his company would receive due to relentless pursuit of precision and accuracy in a wristwatch.  Soon after its founding, Rolex produced the first wristwatch to receive the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, which was followed rapidly by receipt of a certificate of precision from the Kew Observatory in Great Britain.  From those roots Rolex built a legacy of innovation.  The Oyster watch was the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch in 1926, followed by the first self-winding Perpetual rotor.  Building once again on innovation, the Datejust became the first self-winding wrist chronometer to include a date in a window on the dial.  Adventurous women and men who strive to make history have chosen Rolex for their expedition, which both perpetuates the brand’s claim to precision and dependability as well as attests to its veracity.  Hans Wilsdorf may have anticipated the acclaim Rolex would someday achieve, but even he might have been impressed with its success.
