We guarantee the authenticity of this item.
The Rolex Explorer II was first introduced in 1989. It was in production for over 20 years and is a testimony of the transition from the vintage to the modern production. As an example, it went from tritium to luminova and superluminova as luminescent material.
Extremely reliable and the perfect companion, it is no surprise that the 16570 has gained lots of attention from the market in the recent years. The watch was available either with a white or a black dial, such as this lot, which is more faithful to the original 1655 "Steve McQueen" model. This watch features a fixed bezel with 24 hour graduations.
The watch is in very good condition. The movement is running at the time of cataloging, however, it was not tested for the accuracy of time or duration of the power reserve and may need service at the buyer's discretion. Please note that Sotheby's does not guarantee the future working of the movement.
