About This Watch

We are proud to present this stylish Rolex Explorer II watch for sale.

A watch for any and all conditions. Tested by explorers, mountaineers and scientists in the most challenging of conditions. The Explorer II set new standards for precision, strength, and clarity. Larger and more rugged than its predecessor, the Explorer II features an additional hand that rotates around the face of the watch once per 24 hours, which allows you to keep track of daylight hours or a second time zone thanks to the hacking-hour hand.

This reference 16570 was produced from 1989 until 2011. The watch features the clean black dial with striking red 24-hour hand, Superluminova dot hour markers, date window, 40mm stainless steel case and engraved contrasting black 24-hour bezel. This Explorer II is equipped with a chronometer rated calibre 3185 automatic movement and is fitted on the stainless-steel Oyster link bracelet with folding clasp.

Originally purchased in August 2002 and in mint condition, this Explorer II comes with its original inner and outer Rolex boxes, swing tag, seal, instruction booklet, leather warranty holder, calendar card and perforated international warranty paperwork. It is sold with a 12-month warranty from SWC.

With 2021 being the 50th anniversary of the Explorer II collection there is no better time to get your hands on this iconic tool watch from Rolex.

Rang on a Saturday, left a message, Dee called me on Monday morning, did the deal for the watch over the phone, paid for it and received the watch at 10am on Wednesday, communication was excellent, service was excellent and most importantly the watch is excellent, I would recommend SWC to anyone looking for a high end watch.
