About the Rolex Polar


Rolex Explorer Polar

Rolex Polar Reference Number(s):

16550, 16570, 216570

Years Rolex Polar was Produced:

1985 - Present

Rolex Polar Nickname Origin:

Rolex originally only offered the Explorer II with a black dial; however the release of the reference 16550 also marked the introduction of the white dial option to the Explorer II line of watches, and collectors began referring to white dial variants as "Polar" Explorers. To view our full section of watches visit our used Rolex Explorer watches page. As the Explorer lines of watches are designed for adventurers and use outdoors, the "Polar" nickname is fitting for the version with the white dial. Other than dial and hand colors, there is nothing separating a "Polar" Explorer from a regular Explorer II with a black dial. However, the simple change in dial color results in a remarkably different looking watch.

Rolex Polar Celebrity Associations:

Tom Hardy, Prince Harry of Wales, Jordan Spieth, Jack Hanna

Unique Features for the Rolex Polar

A white sport dial, fitted with either white gold or black hour markers (depending on the year of production).
