I never understood why this 16570 was underrated.
The White dial?
The Model in itself?
I always loved it, and even more with the white dial, as we don’t often see white dialed Rolexes…
This one has a particular story,42000cn tudor.
In 1996/ 1997,watch, an Expedition was organized to the North Pole, in the Norwegian Part of the North Pole, to be more precise…
This was a scientific Expedition, and some people was invited to join this trip, as Photographers, Artists, etc…
As a Tradition, Rolex provided to each member of this Expedition an Explorer II, White Dial.
Mine was given to Nils LUND, a famous Norwegian Artist,replica jaeger lecoultre, with the name of the Expedition, the Date, and the name of each member engraved on the case back.
A friend of mine called me to ask if I was interested in buying it, as he knew that I was hunting a special Explorer II.
And since quite 3 years now, I’m the happy owner of this lovely watch.
I gave it for a complete overhaul recently, ad it just came back 2 days ago…
A light buff, a total service, but I was afraid to change the bezel, so I kept it, a bit destroyed, certainly bitten by a Bear…LOL
And, once again, I fell in love with!
This is a watch like I love them, elegant, strong, powerful, a bit sporty…
And this white dial, so particular for a Rolex!
Isn’t it lovely?
Just wanted to share with you this watch with a nice story…
