My 16570 Polar

While looking to buy my first luxury watch I dismissed the 16570. I searched for months, even buying a couple of watches then returning them. My wife was the one who told me to give this model a more serious look. After going to try it on, I really took a liking to it. It's sporty, casual, young and youthful while also being refined and elegant. The brushed bezel makes it less flashy but still reflects light beautifully as it travels around the circle. Surprisingly, the silhouette (looking from the side) really puts a smile on my face. The curves and lines of the case and bezel are gorgeous. I've grown to love this watch more and more with time. Pictures online do not do this piece any justice. I'm a macro photographer so I decided to bring it down to my studio one night. Hope you enjoy the pics!

One of my all time favorite watches. Honestly if I could fine one with papers, box and cards I would snag it up. Such a beautiful watch.

Great pictures and a real beautiful watch.

I was in a similar situation and just pulled the trigger one this week as a matter of fact. Expect it to arrive Friday and hope to have the same sentiments at you.

I got an F series, so SEL and no holes case.

The EXP II a favorite of mine especially with the polar dial, When I add a 3rd to my collection I'm sure it will be the EXPII
