The Explorer II line was developed in 1971 and, similar to its predecessor the Explorer, was equipped with a tough stainless steel finish, a waterproof Oyster case, and a reliable perpetual movement. The main difference between the two models is that the Explorer II is also outfitted with a fixed 24-hour bezel and a dedicated hand on the dial. These features were added to assist the wearer in tracking day and night hours, a particularly useful tool while working for long periods in caves, Arctic regions, or other environments that experience long bouts of darkness.
The pre-owned Rolex 216570 white dial Explorer was released during the 40th anniversary of the line in 2011 and features an orange arrow hand on the dial, similar to the inaugural model, as well as an improved 904L stainless steel finish, a larger 42mm case, and a new calibre 3187 movement. This reference also features what is commonly referred to by avid collectors as a "Polar" dial, which displays the time via luminous hour markers and Mercedes hands in black surrounds.

Exceptional value and quality, hard to find this particular year.
I've had my Explorer II for a little over a month now. I love how its low profile and light weight don't get in the way of my active lifestyle. Bob's offered this watch at a price I just couldn't say no to, and the customer service was top notch. The Explorer II is sensible and looks stunning! I couldn't be happier with this purchase!
