black is the colour
black is the colour george i was tempted by the white when i looked at them at the launch in basel but i am so glad i went for black the orange hand that makes this so distinguishable from the other sports range of rolex justs stands out so much more i have it on now and it has competion from a sub red daytona and a guilt 5513, but they are taking second billing to this baby at the moment : good luck with your choice

New explorer ref. 216570 : photo shoot
a friend of mine bought this watch. borrowed it for one day to take these pics Nicolas, reading your reply on a similar post a few steps below I have to say I completely disagree. While you said; Too large and too short hands, too big round indexes, too b...
new rolex explorer II
This watch is a sequel to the 1655, on that basis, I would say gotta be black but i agree, would like to see both to decide. Unfortunately for me 42mm might be too big
Great pictures, Bruno.
We are not obliged to agree on all, my friend. I stay on my position and thoughts on this watch: When you're used to the previous versions, ( the 1655 and the 16 550 / 570 ) there is a proportion, an harmony which had litteraly exploded, with this latest ...
New Generation Rolex
First of all, great pics u have there, Bruno! Well done! I'm a huge fan of old school Sport Rolex pieces. Pertaining to the new gen Rolexes, i tend to agree with Nicolas that the case bigger than it should have been and the lugs is kind of out of place. D...
Welcome here, SCFR!
You and your Freccione! This one is in superb condition, and has developped a very nice and warm patina. I love this watch so much that I will certainly, one day;, take another one, a straight second hand, and certainly a rail dial. All the best. Nicolas.
this is what you see in the dark...
Great photos, Bruno!
You managed to change the brute character of the watch and turn it into a much civilized presentation. Now I am more intrigued to see it in the flesh. What were your impressions in regards to comfort after having worn it all day? Best, Alex
I didn't wear it
that is the problem with steel bracelets, my wrist is thicker and there is no way I can wear it if I haven't a few extra links.
Fantastic photo, Bruno.
I have to say your photo really change my mind on this watch. I'm sure I have no problem picking this watch and call it my 1st or 2nd modern Rolex. If I didn't knew the existence of the previous version. There are certain old world charm in those vintage ...
Fantastic photos Bruno..
+1 on Nicolas comment..best photos I have seen of this model...nice job as always but I too agree with Bruno here. Best proportioned MODERN Rolex! The SubC's fat lugs just too much and IMHO, Rolex did the larger 42mm case right in this case. intrigued as ...
just collected mine 4hrs ago from dealers i was and got to say over the moon with it, i was excited when i visited the Rolex stand in Base l put my name down at my AD soon as i came back, i wasnt expecting to see one on my wrist until the new year, couldn...
You must post better pictures of the watch. Best regards, George

Thanks I really enjoyed.
I am still stumped now on whether I should get the white dial or the black dial??? I think that I am leaning towards the black dial even though I originally was tempted by the white one. Best regards, George

Tiny spec on dial - ? imperfection
Picture 8. There appears to be a tiny bump on the dial. Looks like an imperfection rather than a smudge as the color is the same as the dial. 40mm Submariner fits my wrist like a glove. Wish Rolex had released a version in classic 40mm dimensions but Role...
Great report Bruno............
And your photos are stunning......................As always. Now if you could only do the same with the black dial version than...................................That would be awesome
Magnificent Picture and Watch!
I purchased the new Exp II and I really liked it. It is the first watch since the fat lugs that due to the increased diameter looks to my eye “right”. It is proportioned and doesn’t look like a brick on my wrist. I like Rolex watches for...
