Rolex Explorer II 2000

$ 8,120
  • Product Notes

    Designed for speleologists and potholers, the Rolex Explorer II, and its 24-hour hand and fixed bezel, afforded such explorers the leveling experience of being able to keep a track of time and whether it was am or pm via the large luminous 24-hour hand. It also proved useful for explorers in continents where there were periods of constant daylight or darkness.

    The first iteration of the Explorer II was reference 1655, which was powered by the 26 jewel caliber 1575 GMT, the same movement as in the 1675 GMT Master. The Explorer II had a fixed, non-rotating, bezel with 24-hour markings with the even numbers in arabic numerals and odd numbers represented with hash markers. At the end of the 1980s, the Explorer II got a makeover, the case had a redesign, including a new bezel that had a new font and triangles to mark the odd hours. The large orange hand was also swapped for a more subtle large-pointer hand with red stem and white metal triangle head. In our mind, the reference 16570 is one of the best value sports Rolex watches in the pre-owned market.
