I do love the Explorer. Both the I and II really appeal to me, and whilst I bagged a lovely tritium 14270 a while back I'd pretty much forgotten about it's cousin, the 16570 "Polar", and let it fall off the radar a little.

I've actually hankered after a really nice tritium piece for quite some time, and even turned down the offer of a great example a while back because the patina wasn't dark enough to tempt me to take up the offer. However, a recent opportunity turned up just what I'd been waiting for, and it (a 1993 16570, that is) duly arrived today looking even nicer in the metal than I'd hoped. Complete with box and booklets, and a very recent service warranty from Bill Rice to complete the set.

Here's a few immediate shots - I'm struggling a little with a new lighting set-up but I think they've turned out quite nicely. I can honestly say that I've never liked a watch so much upon putting it on my wrist. What do you reckon?
