Rolex purists the world over flock to the Explorer II ref 16570 wrist watches not for their popularity, but because they’re fond of the days when Rolex crafted full-blooded tool watches. The Explorer II watches are true cult classics for the most ardent and experienced watch collectors. These masterful timepieces are not updated as frequently as other more popular models like the Datejust or Sub-Mariner. They are still as elegant, dependable, and accurate as their more well-known siblings.

The Rolex Explorer II ref 16570 first debuted in 1989 and wasn’t replaced by another updated version until 2011. These models are the most affordable of the Rolex brand and are indeed a superb example of Rolex’s master artistry in the way in which they craft truly generational timepieces. The Explorer II is crafted and created entirely of stainless steel, and the bezel surround is non-rotatable. This is for a good reason, as these watches were first designed to be worn in cave exploration or on expeditions to the poles, places where there is either no light or too much. So the 24-hour time markers are meant to stay stationary and always noted by the slower running, additional hour hand to denote the reference time at all times.

Powered by the self-winding Cal. 3185 Perpetual movement that is COSC certified and operates at a whopping 28,800 beats per hour, allowing for a 48-hour power reserve, making this watch a no-nonsense, durable workhorse.
