There are a couple of words which have lost all significance when it comes to discussing Rolex watches. “Underrated,””sleeper,” and”undervalued” may not be wholly meaningless at this time, but we are getting there at a very quick pace. Social media and, frankly, articles similar to this one don’t do any favors to the enthusiast hunters out there, but you’d be amazed how many people I’ve met that are pretty clueless about the Explorer II. In this guide, I’m going to have a look at the Explorer II Ref. 16570, that was the 40mm variant that was produced for 22 decades, from 1989 through 2011. Low-key layout, dual time zone performance, near indestructibility, and having a doggedly non-luxurified attitude, the Explorer II 16570 may be the best value contemporary Rolex sports watch out there.
Sure, I am a bit biased towards the Explorer II. It has always been my favorite Rolex Cellini Annual Calendar replica waches sports opinion, palms down. While the Submariner, GMT-Master II, and Daytona get all of the spotlight, the Explorer II was Rolex’s low-key pragmatic instrument watch that is also an actual traveling watch for decades now. A bit of those black sheep of this sports-watch household, the Explorer II is the Prince Harry into the GMT-Master II’s Prince William (which is funny, because I believe Harry wears a polar dial Explorer II).
