The Rolex Reference 16570, known as the Explorer II, is an iconic timepiece that embodies the spirit of exploration and adventure. Introduced in 1989, it builds upon the legacy of its predecessor, the Reference 16550, with enhancements in design, functionality, and reliability. This model has earned a reputation for its rugged durability and precision timekeeping, making it a favorite among explorers, adventurers, and watch enthusiasts alike.

Key Features:

Design: The Rolex Explorer II Reference 16570 boasts a classic yet sporty design. Its stainless steel case is robust and built to withstand the rigors of outdoor exploration. The fixed 24-hour bezel is engraved with numerals, allowing for easy tracking of a second time zone. The dial is available in black or white, both featuring luminescent hour markers and hands for enhanced visibility in low-light conditions.

Movement: Powering the Explorer II is Rolex's caliber 3185 movement, a self-winding mechanical movement renowned for its accuracy and reliability. Equipped with a Parachrom hairspring and Paraflex shock absorbers, this movement ensures optimal performance even in challenging environments.

Functionality: True to its name, the Explorer II is designed for exploration and adventure. The addition of a 24-hour hand and a fixed 24-hour bezel enables wearers to easily distinguish between day and night, crucial for those navigating in polar regions or underground environments. The Cyclops lens over the date window magnifies the date for improved readability.

Durability: Built to withstand the toughest conditions, the Rolex Explorer II Reference 16570 features a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a Twinlock winding crown, providing water resistance up to 100 meters (330 feet). The stainless steel Oyster bracelet with an Oysterlock clasp ensures a secure and comfortable fit on the wrist.

Legacy: As a part of the Rolex Professional series, the Explorer II Reference 16570 carries on the heritage of the original Explorer watches worn by mountaineers, cave explorers, and adventurers in the most challenging environments around the world. Its timeless design and exceptional performance make it a symbol of exploration and achievement.

In conclusion, the Rolex Explorer II Reference 16570 is a testament to Rolex's commitment to excellence and innovation. With its combination of rugged durability, precision timekeeping, and iconic design, it remains a beloved choice for those who seek adventure and exploration.
