    Lovely watch. I imagine trying to get hold of one of at my local AD is pointless though.

    Still waterproof!


    One of my favourite watches and have owned 2 in the past. Sold them both when they were still relatively cheap and not particularly popular. Which I’d hung to at least one of them !!

    50th anniversary this year. Does anyone think the ceramic bezel will make an appearance on a new version this year?

    Nono, you have meet teetering here. Half regret for selling mine and half excitement to see what's coming. As always absolutely stunning pictures.

    Only just found this thread; the Polar Exp II (42mm) is my daily wearer and gets a beating. I never take it off for any activity and after 8 or so years it still looks great; dinks, scratches and all. I had a GMT IIc which I hated as it was so flash and shiny, so traded it in for the Exp II at the AD - and I am so glad I did.

    I’ll upload some of my photos when I get chance.

    Two replies on this thread sadden me; the poster who admitted to buying one and keeping it in the safe, unopened and fully stickered as an investment (the WRONG reason to buy a watch, and depriving others of the opportunity) and the poster who ‘forgot’ he’d put himself down for a £6k watch and was surprised to get the call, asking if he could ‘think about it’. WTF? I’m glad he bought it in the end, but just shows people are desperate for *any* Rolex steel sports model and just put their names down without any real consideration. Sad, to quote Trump.

    I've had mine since 2013 when my wife and I treated ourselves to wedding watches - dunno why my wife wanted a new watch - there's a perfectly good clock on the oven... (that was part of my wedding speech and I've been paying for it ever since!). The E2's been a great time piece with outstanding legibility that I still get a lot of pleasure out of and has sentimental value. Only issue was a 24hr hand click spring that broke in 2019 - apparently earlier 3187's were prone to this (as was the GMT's 3186) and it was replaced with a stronger item at some point (as was mine during the £585 service).

    Always nice to hear a compliment from a pro photographer!


    First in the world LIVE shot of the new 2021 Rolex Explorer 2 #226570


    As you can see, new model also features bright Chromalight lume, which insures extra readability in caves and during long climbs on Everest. It has the same all steel, tool-like case which handles battle scars like a champ.


    BTW if you made it this far, you've been pranked (it's actually old model 216570). And I should kept my mouth shut because you couldn't tell the difference

    IMHO Probably the best looking sports model and so photogenic.

    To be honest, I'll agree 100% with you. Just recently I was browsing Rolex.com and trying to find equvalent in therms of a tool watch that can handle scraches and almost every situation like Explorer 2 (White or Black). And Explorer 1 comes close, but Ex2 has that little edge (with GMT and all). And I'm not saying because I have it, my favorite model was Submariner when I was buying the Polar and at first I thought I made a wrong decision but now, I wouldn't change it.

    I actually thought the total
    Opposite haha! I think photos don’t do the 16570 justice. Great watch in person

    Jup, me too. It looks like a TripLock crown on their sports models. Really nice packing, and that crown top is actually metal

    Hey Rolex, If you're reading this, take Justin's advice
    Thanx man!

    Almost forgot the 'wave' shot
