From bobswatches.com, perhaps the most underrated Rolex sports watch today, overshadowed by giants such as the Submariner, Daytona, and GMT-Master II, the Explorer II is not one to overlook. Originally positioned as a tool watch for spelunkers that offered a day/night indication via its 24-hour hand and fixed 24-hour bezel, the Rolex Explorer II eventually graduated to GMT watch status with an independently adjustable 24-hour hand.

Since its introduction in 1971, there have only ever been four Rolex Explorer II references. If you're in the market for one of these sporty stainless steel models, join us as we compare two of the latest references, the Rolex Explorer II 16570 vs. 216570, to see which one suits you best.

Regardless of the specific reference, there are a handful of design traits that are common throughout all Explorer II watches. First, Rolex has only ever made the Explorer II in stainless steel; there have never been two-tone or solid gold references. Second, all Rolex Explorer II models are equipped with a fixed steel bezel engraved with a 24-hour scale. Third, like almost all Rolex watches with date displays, the Explorer II has a Cyclops magnification.

Rolex released the Explorer II ref. 16570 in 1989 to replace the preceding ref. 16550. Like its predecessor, the Explorer II 16570 featured a 40mm steel case, sapphire crystal, thin red arrow-tipped 24-hour hand, and a Mercedes-style handset. However, new to the model was the Caliber 3185 movement. Additionally, Rolex framed the lume plots on the Polar 16570 watches with black surrounds, which made the hour markers pop dramatically against the stark white background.
