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 lets 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!

It was the total overhaul of the Explorer 11 ref 16550 with its sapphire crystal, Mercedes hands and 24 hour hand and caliber 3085 movement that brought the explorer 11 into the modern age of sports Rolex which was continued when it was replaced by the 16570 as with this example which also meant the introduction of the improved cal 3185 movement.

This Black dial variant  from 2008  comes in great condition cosmetically and mechanically and also benefits from the full size bracelet ref 78790

The watch comes complete with
Rolex box.
Correct tags with serial number shown
Rolex guarantee booklet.
Rolex Explorer Booklet
Rolex oyster booklet

Original papers have unfortunate been misplaced by the previous owner

The 40mm stainless steel case is unpolished and I believe this to be a great example of a Rolex sports watch that is currently a great value proposition.
