FS: FS: Rolex Polar Explorer II (Reference 16570, P Serial)

Up for sale is my Polar Explorer II (Reference 16570, P serial circa 2000). This is the iconic Polar but in the 40mm case size.

The watch itself is in great shape, just having gone through an RSC official service in summer of 2020 that cost nearly $1,200. During service, RSC did replace the bezel and the crystal, but the dial and hands are untouched. Overall, it is a very clean example of the Polar Explorer.

The Bracelet is the 78790A which features SEL. The bracelet does have some modest stretch commensurate with age. The bracelet also has 11 links, so is missing two inks but very comfortably fits my ~7.3in. wrist. The watch comes with an official service pouch and the receipt from jeweler dealer as well as RSC service papers.

ASKING: $5,900. (negotiable). with insured shipping covered by me. Will accept payment only via wire transfer. No trades on this one, please.


If you have any questions or want additional photos, please just ask! I'm happy to oblige.

I will accept returns after a 4 days inspection period.

Thank you for looking!
