A nice random serial Rolex 216570 Explorer II orange hand 42mm. Replaces the 16570 Explorer II (40mm). This Explorer II keeps the same style brushed 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 found on its predecessor the REF 16570. Most prominent change is the retro orange 24 hour 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 GMT 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. Bracelet also has been upgraded to solid middle links and an improved clasp with easy link extension for an overall heavier and more adjustable profile on the wrist.
SOLD and delivered to our buyer as a complete set with original boxes, warranty card, tags, and manuals.
