This Explorer II 16570 is in overall good shape for a second-hand watch. Please refer to the pictures in determining the condition, pictures are of the exact watch being offered.
What's special about this piece is that it left Rolex equipped with the caliber 3186 movement which is not common for most 16570 models that housed the caliber 3185 movement. In other words, this particular example is a collector's piece because it has the updated 3186 movement which was not in production long.
Case is made of stainless steel with brush-finished lugs and high-polish finished sides. The 24-hour bezel mounted atop is brush-finished stainless steel. Both crown and solid case back are screw-down. The oyster bracelet is stainless steel as well, mostly brush-finished with the exception of the sides of the links. Bracelet currently fits up to a 7.75 inch wrist comfortably.
