What We Fancy

The Explorer II was first released in 1971 with the reference 1655. This third-generation Rolex Explorer II hit the market in 1989 under its new reference 16570. Offered in both a black and the white "polar" dial, the ref. 16570 has quickly become one of the more collectible Rolex models of this era over the past few years. This particular example dates to 2000 with the very sought-after polar white dial.
