Introduced by Rolex in the 1970s, the iconic Explorer line quickly captured attention with its distinct and innovative style. As the series underwent several adjustments and evolutions, Rolex eventually struck gold-16570, a timepiece that superbly amalgamates class and daring creativity. The Rolex Explorer II 16570, affectionately christened the "Polar," stands out from its predecessors with added features and a distinctive appearance. This model sports an additional hand and a fixed 24-hour bezel, a handy markdown for those adventurous spirits who venture into the unforgiving polar regions, where sunlight can be scarce or non-existent. Framing the starkly enchanting white dial that earned the watch its "Polar" nickname, is a resilient 40mm stainless steel case. This case encloses the formidable caliber 3185 movement, recognized worldwide for its precision and longevity. The white dial, marked with luminous hour indicators to make time legible in all conditions, sharply contrasts with the sleek black detailing, giving the timepiece its captivating allure. That's not all. The watch proudly pairs the case with the Oyster bracelet model 93150, crafted from the same enduring stainless steel. The Oyster bracelet is considered a benchmark for comfort and robustness, contributing to the overall sturdy nature of the watch. Adding to its plethora of impressive features, the Rolex Explorer II 16570 "Polar" is waterproof up to 330 feet. It is specifically designed to withstand intense pressure and adverse conditions, adding a further layer of durability and reliability to the timepiece. Lastly, in affirming and re-establishing its pedigree, the Rolex Explorer II 16570 "Polar" is a Chronometer Certified watch. This means the watch has been tested and approved by an official neutral body, the COSC. This certification involves several days of testing under various conditions, including differing positions and temperatures. The assurance of the watch being chronometer certified provides potential owners additional peace of mind regarding the watch's authenticity and quality. In summary, the Rolex Explorer II 16570 Polar is not merely a watch but a testament to Rolex's commitment to quality, design, and passion for exploration and adventure. Reminding us of the undeniable charm in simplicity and excellence, this timepiece is a must-have for every watch collector and enthusiast.
