When the Explorer II ref. 16570 debuted in 1989, it introduced several upgrades to the line, including the first instance of a Rolex dial topped with lume in black surrounds as opposed to the standard precious metal. Set against a white dial, this new feature earned the ref. 16570 the nickname the "Polar". The ref. 16570 also utilizes a new calibre 3185 or 3186 perpetual movement, depending on when the reference was released. Many sports references are sought-after by avid collectors for the professional application that they offer. The Explorer II is often referred to as a Spelunking watch, offering a highly visible reading and a tough exterior and is the ideal watch for those who seek a used Rolex with great timekeeping abilities and a classy sports watch style.

This is the first Rolex that I have ever owned, and I could not be more pleased with my purchase or my purchasing experience at Bob’s Watches! Now, I am not a collector or even a “watch guy“ – I’m just a guy who is at a point in his career and his life where it’s appropriate to own a nice watch, and this particular watch (a Rolex explorer two with the polar dial) is one that I had always admired. Bob’s Watches had exactly the model that I was looking for and at a price that was within my budget. Although my particular watch was listed as being in “excellent“ condition, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it had no visible signs of wear at all, and, in fact, looks completely brand new and unworn. The watch is beautiful, comfortable, and even nicer than I expected!
I am very happy with my purchase of the Explorer II. George helped me with my purchased and he went above and beyond with everything by explaining and answering all of my questions. This is the place to purchase your watch and George is the person to help you.
I love the stainless steel with the black face
This watch is perfect! It’s exactly what I wanted in terms of price, features and size. I originally bought a less expensive and smaller one but returned it for this one. Stacy was a HUGE help and walked me through the exchange process and I even got my new watch before Christmas! If you are debating between a less expensive or more expensive watch, get the more expensive one. You won’t regret it.
So, I own two Rolex watches. I was a little leery of buying a used watch as I never have. I loved all the photos of the watch being magnified times 10 of the actual watch. Then I talked to Tanya in customer service who answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable about my purchase. Also, advising me of their return policy if I wasn't satisfied with my watch. Finally my watch arrived and I was blown away. Despite being years old because it was discontinued it looked like it was brand new. I absolutely love Bob's Watches and will feel comfortable making purchases with them in the future.
I love the watch. Amazing shape for being a 15 year old model, I had been looking for this watch for years. Couldn’t be happier. Tanya and the team at Bob’s made this the personal and luxury experience it ought to be, and I will be returning for my next Rolex. Thank you all!!
I purchased my birth year 16570 from bobs about a week ago and it was a great experience! The watch was in excellent condition and very fast delivery!
