“Be an, surf the internet, visit customers, enjoy arts, watch children anything to prevent yourself from becoming a prisoner of your knowledge, experience, and current view of the world.”

Charles Thompson quotes


SWISS WATCH EXPO would like to offer this handsome 100% authentic men's stainless steel Rolex explorer II, model# 16570.

This genuine timepiece is in excellent condition and impressive on every level.

Rolex explorer is the name which is synonymous with historical challenges that exhibit the best in physical achievement and endurance. We all know that in 1953 sir Edmund Hillary wore a Rolex Explorer to the summit of mt. Everest, a height of 29,035 feet. 


Rolex Explorer II


The Rolex Explorer was designed and made to supply the members of the 1953 expedition to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Edmund Hilary and Tenzing Norgay, on May 29, 1953, were the first to reach the summit of Everest. While Rolex Explorer watches were supplied to all the members of the expedition, as Rolex was the official supplier of the expedition, Edmund Hilary chose to wear a Smith watch. Smith, an English watchmaking company was also a sponsor of the 1953 Everest expedition.

Whether a Rolex or Smith watch made it to the top first, we will never know. Edmund Hilary and Tenzing Norgay, when asked who made it to the top first, both answered "it mattered nothing who made it to the top first."

Both Rolex Explorer and Rolex Explorer II watch models are designed for active and curious people whose profession involves extreme conditions as well as for those who like nicely designed sports watches with interesting history.


Rolex has many watch models that are designed for explorers and all of these models were tested by Rolex in extreme conditions. For instance Rolex Deepsea Special watch was fixed to the bathyscaphe Trieste when it descended in Mariana Trench. The next day Jacques Picard  sent to Rolex the telegram that said that Rolex Deepsea withstood depth 11 000 remaining waterproof and functional.

Rolex Explorer II is the model that continues the lineup of its celebrated predecessors. As well as Rolex Explorer, Rolex Explorer II is one of the most popular Rolex models.

As well as GMT Master model this one is equipped with watch mechanism with double time indication. Initially this model was designed for speleologists who explore caves. Speleologists have to stay much time in caves so they cannot always know whether it is day or night now. That is why the watch helps the explorers to tell day from night. The watch features a secondary 24 hour hand that helps explorers to tell if the main hour hand is representing AM or PM.


Though the watch is designed for cavers, Rolex Explorer II was not only liked by people who work in caves. It as well was very much liked by everyone who prefers stylish and complicated watches of the best quality.

Rolex Explorer II was released in 1971. The first models featured a straight second hand and an orange 24 hour hand. Models that were released in 1974 onward incorporated a luminous circle on the second hand. Some short time later Rolex began releasing Rolex Explorer II with red 24 hour hand.

Production of this model was discontinued in 1985, so now this model is very valuable and collectible.


Rolex Explorer II is known as Steve McQueen’s watch. However Steve McQueen never wore the Explorer II. In fact he wore Rolex Submariner that had a very similar design to the Rolex Explorer II. The Submariner produced in the period between 1959 and 1978 model was available exclusively in UK. It is quite logical to suppose that this McQUeen connection was what inspired the naming of the later Explorer II as the Steve McQueen Rolex.
