I initially wanted the white dialed version when the first pictures were released of the Exp42, but the black dial is really growing on me.

Rolex really hit a home run with this one.

My 216570 white dial is 3 weeks old today.

Funny, but that doesn't look like a baby's wrist

Despite reservations, I bought one with black dial!

Sam...you are quite the enabler. I have all but decided the Exp42 is in my future, but I am very torn as to which dial color at this point.

That would be me! Thanks Sam and YES I did join the Rolex dark side. I am in love with the black dial and for me this is the only Explorer 42 to have
