The Hands, Dial and Bezel
The focus of the 216570 is the striking clear dial, which is available in black or white and it is protected as usual by scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The typical Rolex cyclometer magnifying glass above the legendary automatic date display is also a must so that the display is perfectly readable. The hour, minute and second hands, as well as the hour indices displayed as symbols, are made of the patented Chromalight.
The material impresses with its bluish luminosity, ensuring accurate time indications even in dark conditions. Additionally, the independently adjustable orange 24-hour GMT hand allows you to tell whether it is day or night in confusing situations: it takes 24 hours to turn the fixed bezel, which is graduated accordingly. You can also keep a second time zone in view with it.
Times of Challenge
The Rolex 216570 is one of the company's most sporty and robust watches. The case is made of the uniquely tough 904L Oystersteel and the Paraflex shock absorbers of 3187 mechanism also provide improved resistance to shocks and other extreme conditions. The watch is also waterproof to a depth of 100 meters. This means that the Rolex 216570, with its mechanical self-winding Perpetual movement, delivers precise time indications even in difficult conditions. Its rate accuracy is -2/+2 seconds per day, which is confirmed by a COSC certificate. The 216570 has a stop-seconds mechanism to ensure accurate timekeeping.
