In 1971, Rolex released the Rolex Explorer II 1655. This watch featured the iconic fixed 24 hour bezel and over-sized orange GMT hand. The watch was originally designed specifically for explorers, or 'potholers' to know the exact time, either AM or PM, without relying on daylight. It was not until the release of the Rolex Explorer II 16570 in 1989 that now familiar Mercedes-style hands were fitted to the Explorer II.
Release in 1989, the Rolex Explorer II 16570 was available with either black or white dials and powered by the 3165 automatic movement. The white dial Explorer II has since become known at the 'Polar Explorer'. Towards the end of the watches production the inner rehaut became engraved and the Rolex calibre 3186 movement was installed. All Rolex Explorer II 16570 watches were fitted with a red GMT hand.
In 2011 Rolex released the Rolex Explorer II 216570. This model increased in size to 42mm and just like the previous generation 16570, was also available with white or black dials. The 216570 also saw the return of the orange GMT hand. 2021 marks the 50th anniversary of the Rolex Explorer II.
