Description

The Rolex Explorer II model 16570, hailing from the year 1999, embodies a legacy of precision, robustness, and a spirit of adventure, meticulously crafted to accompany the modern explorer in every endeavor. This timepiece represents an era of Rolex’s horological innovation, maintaining its classic appeal while seamlessly incorporating advanced features suited for extreme conditions.

With a 40mm stainless steel case, the Explorer II is designed for optimal durability and comfort. The watch’s resilience is further ensured by its fixed bezel with a 24-hour graduated scale, a crucial feature for adventurers needing to distinguish day from night in environments where sunlight is absent. This model stands out with its distinctive white “Polar” dial, offering a stark, visually appealing contrast with black outlines on the hour markers and hands, ensuring exceptional legibility under all circumstances. The bold, red 24-hour hand not only adds a splash of color but also serves an essential function, enabling wearers to differentiate between AM and PM hours or to track a second time zone.

At the heart of the Explorer II lies Rolex’s caliber 3185, a self-winding mechanical movement celebrated for its precision, reliability, and endurance. This caliber, complete with a second time zone function and a date display, has been rigorously tested to meet COSC certification standards, solidifying Rolex’s commitment to offering unsurpassed accuracy.

 

 

Rolex – bio

Founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis in London, initially as Wilsdorf & Davis Ltd. Renamed Rolex by 1908 and moved its base of operations to Geneva, Switzerland in 1919.  Their success is due to their innovation namely the legendary “Oyster” case – first water resistant watch and their extremely reliable movements.
The most famous models are Datejust, Day-Date, Daytona, Explorer, GMT-Master, Submariner and many more.
The company is owned by the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation, a family private trust.
One story, never confirmed by Wilsdorf, recounts that the name came from the French words “horlogerie exquise”‘è, meaning “exquisite clockwork”.
