About this watch

I have to smile sometimes when I write my descriptions of watches and as I paused to type “great value modern sports Rolex” that was one of those smiling moments because let’s be honest ,most modern sports Rolex watches are far from great value but I honestly believe that the Explorer 16570 is the best value available at this moment especially one as good as this .Considering the watch was in production for more than 20 years and is renowned for its superb Build quality its surprising not more people are aware of them ,although I sense that is changing ,I also suspect that not many of its new fans will wear the watch for its original purpose of cave exploring!

The introduction of the 16570 brought with it the improved cal 3135 movement as seen in this example.

The watch comes complete with original punched Rolex papers and Rolex box along with Rolex document wallet and tag.

The 40mm stainless steel case holds the flawless black dial which is enhanced by way the tritium lume has aged to a wonderful creamy colour.

This Black dial variant from 1993 is in great condition cosmetically and mechanically and also benefits from the full-size bracelet ref 78360

I believe this to be a great example of a Rolex sports watch that is currently a great value proposition.

It’s worth noting that being manufactured in 1993 this would make a perfect gift to anyone special celebrating a significant 30th birthday this year.

The automatic cal 3135 movement has been recently serviced and carries our full 12-month guarantee.
