What You Should Know

An excellent example of the Rolex 16570 Explorer II Polar.

This 2003 white dialled version of the Polar Explorer II has clearly only been carefully worn since it was first sold and it’s been very well looked after.

The Rolex Explorer II which was originally referred to as the ‘Steve McQueen’ Rolex, despite the fact he never wore one, has been with us since 1971 and is still going strong now.

The 16570 version was introduced in 1989 featuring a new movement and updated styling from its 16550 predecessor and stayed in production until 2011 in both black and white dialled versions.

Just tested by Rolex & Omega certified watch specialists Michlmayr & Co and this Rolex 16570 Explorer II is running within COSC spec.

We are experts in buying, selling and trading pre-owned luxury watches and our many 5-star Trust Pilot reviews are testament to our customer satisfaction.

For every watch purchased, we commit to planting 25 trees through Ecologi. Our tree counter can be seen at the bottom of the page or you can read more about our sustainability impact on our Ecologi Profile page.

 

 

What's Included

This watch comes with both boxes, original papers, booklets and wallet as well as the red seal and serial numbered green tag.  Its original Solid End Link (SEL) stainless steel bracelet has only a little wear and the clasp is also superb.

At Oakleigh Watches we endeavour to bring you the best examples of the watches you’re looking for. With very few exemptions this involves ensuring that all key components are original to the watch. On the very rare occasions that any key components have been replaced this will be made clear in the description. All pre-owned watches by Oakleigh Watches are 100% genuine. We do not deal in fakes, replicas or homage watches. For more information, read our blog “Is that the Original?” READ HERE
The watches that we sell are usually pre-owned and therefore pre-worn. The wearing of the watch, even for a short time, is likely to put small marks on the case or bracelet. If any of our watches are pre-worn and unmarked, then it’s highly likely that it has had a light polish at some point. There’s a temptation to think that any polishing is bad, it is not! Read our blog – “Has this watch been polished?” READ HERE
All our pre-owned luxury watches are tested to ensure that they are water resistant (where applicable) and comply to COSC spec. Passing these tests means they do not require a service at present. If they have recently been serviced, it will be detailed in the description.
Yes, all our pre-owned watches come with an Oakleigh Watches 12-month warranty. If there is an existing warranty remaining from the original watch purpose, it will be stated in the description.
Within 48 hours of cleared payment. 24 hours if possible.
Unfortunately, there is not a straight forward answer to this question, as there are several variables involved when buying a luxury watch for investment. Read our ‘Expert Guide to Buying Investment Watches’ for more advice. CLICK HERE
