ROLEX EXPLORER II POLAR – 16570 Tritium – Full Set – 1995

Get your hand on one of the most beautiful (and promising) neo-vintage Rolex sports models – The Explorer II “Polar” Ref. 16570.

This is the second execution after the first and less commercial successful reference 1655 “Steve McQueen” or “Freccione* and the ref. 16550.

This Explorer II was made in 1995 (W-Serial) and was only sold to its first and only owner in 1997, after it remained unsold for over a year in the dealer’s store.
Won’t happen today again, I guess…

Asking yourself why you should go for this particular example?

Here is the answer:

It’s a full set – with the original green box, punched papers (100 = Germany), booklets, cardholder, calendar and the original dealer’s sales certificate with the original buyer’s name on it!

Let’s have a look at the condition

Dial (SWISS – T < 25):

Flawless! Glossy snow-white, with spotless black glossy accents and hands, and some nice light creamy tritium patina. It’s a very light Chicchi di Mais, the tritium has developed some creamy color. Red 24 hrs hand.

Case / bracelet:

The case remained unpolished (promised by the first owner), light signs of wear, lugs are unscratched from the back. The case has clearly visible original factory lines.
