    Why not just get a preowned previous generation polar Explorer II then?

    This would be a bit cheaper than the Rolex.

    If you like big and sporty, I'd look at Omega's Planet Ocean lineup. They have a GMT model as well. Gray prices should be within budget or pretty close.

    How about, a Rolex Explorer II?

    This one is certified pre-owned. Box, Papers and all

    Rolex Explorer II 16570 for $4,750 for sale from a Trusted Seller on Chrono24

    This is the actual watch




    For $4,700 that's as minty as it gets.

    If you can go $5,400 you can get the 216570

    http://www.chrono24.com/en/rolex/exp...acturerIds=221

    Also box and papers. The whole 9




    Not polished. Both in perfect condition. This is the way you buy a Rolex. Not new for heavens sakes.

    That SUN025 is very tasty looking. I was going to say that as you wanted an Exp II if you couldn't land one don't try and get something similar as you will still want the Polar and whatever you got would serve to remind you of it. The 025 has changed all that though.
