Rolex Explorer II 16570
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 – I don’t think that this 2009 black dialled version has been polished and has clearly only been lightly worn since 2009 – it’s one of the very last ever made and as such is highly desirable.
Complete with the sought after 3186 movement (passes the ‘wiggle’ test – as well being inspected by the Rolex watchmakers here) and engraved rehaut, this is one of the last of the 40mm Explorer IIs, the whole watch is in excellent condition.
It comes with both boxes, original plastic card ‘papers’, Explorer booklet and wallet as well as the red seal and green tag – its original Solid End Link (SEL) stainless steel bracelet has very little wear and the clasp is also superb.
Just tested by a Rolex authorised watchmaker, it comes with their 12 month warranty and is a great opportunity to acquire a 3186 Explorer II – it’s running really well, within COSC specs, and won’t need to be serviced for years yet.
