Is it just me or do you guys think the 16570 (40mm explorer II) is a sleeper that not a lot of people think about or talk about?

I actually sold my 16570 Polar. I just couldn’t bond with it, nor its jangly bracelet. The 214270 Exp 1 however, will never be leaving my collection.

I also have/had too many white/light dialed Rolexes and the Polar didn’t make the cut. Here are two that made the cut:

I also have a Batman, and don’t need two GMTs, and of course the Batman was gonna beat the Polar.

A 16570 polar is my next cop - they are under appreciated but that’s been changing over the last few years. 3/4 years ago you could get a nice example from the last years it was produced (SEL bracelet, no holes case) for under 5k, but that’s up to around 7.5k today. My favorite examples are the transitional examples from 2007ish onwards with the engraved rehaut and the 3817 movement. Bonus points if you can find a deal on a thin index version like this:

Hindsight is 20/20. My guess is the white dial Milgauss will be the watch people are kicking themselves over in 5 years. Especially when it’s a post-apocalyptic radioactive wasteland on earth and only watches with iron cages will work. :)

For me pictures never did this watch a justice. I always thought it looked nice but the first time I saw someone wearing it and asked them about it I was blown away.

Yea i think so too. im just tired of looking at the usual rolex suspects such as hulk, sub, batman, pepsi, daytona. The more i read into the explorer lines , it is actually a really solid option. 214270 in particular i think would be a really good start to test the water for Rolex PM lines. Spend a bit more than OP and you get an extremely versatile watch.

Each of those watches has its place.

If you look past the hype, they’re often still the best watches in their categories (where I would define categories as balanced size, classic design, resale value, robustness, accuracy — basically everything except movement finishing)

If you don’t want a complication, I agree, you can choose to fly under the radar with the Exp1

Movement shot of my Lange Saxonia, with the 941.1. This older movement was released in 1995 (the year after the brand revived), and originally included in the 1815 line of watches. It has a 45hr power reserve, and a diameter of 26mm. Unlike most Lange watches, it is not free sprung

Sometimes I wish my watch had an updated mvmt like the Thin (exposed wheels, 72 hr reserve, free sprung), but others am glad to have what is close to the original Lange design, which was revolutionary at the time
