That was my first Rolex years ago. It was great then and is great still today. Excellent choice. Congrats!

Great watch! Maybe the most underrated, and still realistically priced sports Rolex

I love the orange hand too--that's what brought me into the Explorer line. However I feel like sometimes the red hand gives off an orangey vibe. Maybe because of the lineage from the McQueen explorer/my imagination, but it wasn't worth it to go for the 42mm for me with smaller wrists just for the pure orange hand.

You and me both, like I said, I’m with you I prefer the 40.

Great incoming post and great choice. I love my black dial. The 16570 really is one of the best in the lineup. It took me a while to find that out and congrats to you for getting there right away.
