Buyer’s Guide: The Rolex Explorer II Ref. 16570 — Making Sense Of The Different Versions

Post by smellody » November 19th 2023, 8:41pm

The Rolex Explorer II is a bit of a fan favorite. This is especially true of the reference 16570, which is part of the popular five-digit generation of Rolex sports watches. Many — including me — admire it for its honest, tool-like qualities. It is from a time before everything went maxi and shiny. But today, I do not intend to wax poetic about it. Today, I want to outline the different versions that exist. If you are considering the 16570, you have a couple of choices to make. Let’s have a closer look. . .

I need links to reputable dealers of pre-owned Rolex's.

That's a nice looking Explorer, Smellody.
I'll keep my eyes open. I think a black dial one can be had for $6k ish. $7k with boxes and papers and such.

Tritium l, luminova, super luminova?

Lug holes case, or not?
