This Rolex Explorer II ref. 216570 is, at its core, a no-frills, GMT-equipped sports watch, and importantly one that helped update the collection from the previous 16570 reference and bring the Explorer II line into the modern age. With a solidly built 42mm stainless steel case, matching triple-link Oyster bracelet, and a fixed 24-hour outer bezel, the watch is instantly recognizable as an Explorer II, albeit one notably much more robust than any previous iterations.

On the dial, Rolex’s efforts toward modernization in the reference are even more apparent, with its “Maxi”-type dial featuring some of the boldest features ever seen in the collection, inclusive of enlarged hands and hour markers, in addition to smart uses of contrast in both colors and textures.
