Gents stainless steel Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer II with white dial
Some collectors gravitate towards the white colour of the Rolex Polar ref. 16570 over the black dial option, simply based on the fact that the white dial is unlike any other Rolex sports watch currently in their watch box. The black surrounds add immense character while enhancing the visibility of the dial. In short, this white dial Rolex Polar is an exceptional variation of the Explorer II ref. 16570.
This stunning example we have is fitted with the extremely popular white polar dial, and is in fantastic all round razor sharp condition!
It comes supplied with a Rolex presentation box, calandar card, reciept from previous purchase (Peridot Jewellers) but unfortunatley not papers, as at some stage it and the original paperwork has been mis-placed, which of course is commonplace for watches of this period.

The Explorer II ref. 16570 came to market in 1989 and offered a stainless steel finish paired with a striking black dial. A luminous display provided an easy reading while the bezel offered 24-hour graduations for optimal timekeeping in any condition. The bezel measured a robust 40mm and was accompanied by an Oysterlock clasp, a typical sports watch pairing. A scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and calibre 3185 automatic movement were also new to the ref. 16570, adding to its appeal among collectors at the time.
