Another beautiful black dial G serial number Rolex 216570 Explorer II 42mm. This model replaces the 16570 Explorer II (40mm). It keeps the same style brushed finish bezel, but now features the larger maxi dial with blue chromalight lume designed to last longer and burn brighter than the previous green luminova lume. Most prominent change is the retro orange 24 hour hand (16570 Explorer had a red GMT hand), a homage paid to the classic 1655 “Steve McQueen” Explorer II (terrible seller in the 70′s and 80′s that has gone on to skyrocket in value within the vintage market today) that first featured the orange 24 hour hand.
The 216570 also features the new 3187 movement with the newly incorporated paraflex shock system and of course the now Rolex standard blue parachrom antimagnetic hairspring. Rolex reference 77210 bracelet also has been upgraded to solid middle links and an improved clasp with easy link adjustment for a heavier profile on the wrist.
SOLD and delivered to our buyer complete with all original Rolex boxes, both red chronometer and green serial number tags, warranty card, and all Rolex Explorer II manuals.
