It’s the m series which also has the 3186 movement, somewhere around 2008 onwards

Does anybody know if itís possible to get the older faces. Will it work on the new 42mm models?

Thanks,

There is a reason they have different sizes.

Advert in a Dutch newspaper. Made a screencapture since I could not save it.
The add is always with a white dail, or has always been with a white dial.

Haha did you know there are no explorers available anymore in the AD's? Strange that they start marketing last year
What newspaper is this in?

NRC, it is a bit upscale and has a really small sports section
There is at least one ROLEX add every week and often some other more expensive brand.

I have never seen a black faced dial in any of the exp adds.

I tried both the black and the white-dialed 216570 at the dealer today, and, even though the encounter was brief, the Polar would be my clear choice. However I have to admit that the 42mm size isn't to my liking, it's just too big for my wrist. 116570, with its more realistic 40mm case would be nice to have. I can see it being worn as an everyday watch. Like the others had said above, it flies under the radar.
Question - the GMT hand, can it be synchronized with the hour hand, when not needed?

Yes. Although I keep it to GMT/UTC pretty much always.

I cant get it anymore at a AD ((( i got the polar but black is also coool
It is sort of a pitty that they ain't obtainable anymore, i talked with a AD about the explorer's and we agreed that it is a pitty that such a under the radar piece has became the new ''hotness'' in recent days. I absolutely adore my explorer 2, if the black one was still widely available for a huge dicount as i got on my polar i would consider it probably
