The Watch

Rolex released the Explorer II ref. 1655 in 1971, and it was designed with polar surveyors and explorers in mind. One of the defining features of this reference is the brightly coloured 24-hour hand. 
Fast forward to 1989, Rolex released the 3rd Generation of the Polar Explorer in the ref.16570, which replaced the 2nd gen 16550. The 16570 had a very successful run, which lasted for 22 years until 2011.
Beating away inside the 40mm Oyster Case is the iconic 3185 automatic movement, which is regarded as one of the best movements Rolex ever produced. This 3185 was fully serviced by Rolex back in September 2013.
The Watch is accompanied by its Full Set of boxes and paperwork, booklets, swing tags, bezel protector and service card.
.Dating from 2004, the Watch is in excellent pre-owned order. The 78790A Bracelet is also in beautiful condition, the clasp code dates to 2006 so could have possibly been put on the Watch during the Rolex Service in 2013. This guy was sold by Watchfinder back in 2021 and was fully inspected/prepared for wear by them.
