The best value in sports Rolex is an old 16570 40mm Polar with red GMT hand. Really underrated watch. They can be picked up for around $4k in great condition with a little bit of hunting. The bigger size 216570 with the orange hand is nice but they take a really big hit (over $2k when adding tax) when bought new. There's several mint condition ones on chrono24 for $6k. Some are even negotiable! That means at least $5800. Never buy a new Explorer II black or polar! This is worse depreciation that most Datejusts! They're awesome watches though and really a bargain at the depreciated price.
