The Explorer received a modern upgrade in 2011 with the release of ref. 216570. Similar to many newer model Rolexes, the case, bezel, and bracelet are crafted from the brand's patented 904L grade Oystersteel and the dial is now topped with larger hour markers and wider hands. Improved luminous material ensures a bright, even glow for an easy reading in most environments. The ref. 216570 also displays a bold orange dedicated arrow hand on the dial, which appears to be a nod towards the inaugural model that debuted 40 years ago in 1971. Also known as the "Polar Explorer", the ref. 216570 is characterized by a luminous display in stark, black surrounds and is highly sought-after by avid pre-owned Rolex collectors.

In a world of black faced sports watches I love the polar white face more than I ever thought I would. I spent almost a week using it as a true tool sports watch. From work with dress shirts to home shoveling and cross country skiing in heavy snow and as well as alpine all day yesterday. Very comfortable on my 7.5 inch wrist. Very easy to read, and not crowed. Time about +1 minute a day. Can't wait until summer for hiking and exploring.
Very happy with the whole process which was easy, efficient and speedy.
My Polar came in Excellent condition! Very very pleased. Thanks for a wonderful deal!
This was my first experience with Bob's watches and overall the experience was excellent. I purchased the watch late morning on a Monday and the watch was at my doorstep in NY the next day by 11. The watch a Rolex Explorer II Polar dial was exactly as promised in excellent condition. If the watch had been worn previously I couldn't tell. Bob's also seemed to have the best inventory of this particular watch as well as price.
I chose the Explorer II for it's bold looks, and because it's less worn by people compared to Submariner. Very unique and smart looking watch.
