    Anyone else have the odd-spaced F-Serial Explorer 16570 Polar Dial?

    So I've owned three 16570 polars so far and finally bought my brother in-law's which I've wanted for the strange dial. After scouring this and other forums, I found out that the F-Serial has a variant of the dial with wider spacing than other 16570's. Specifically, the "Oyster Perpetual Date" is wider spaced than others. I was wondering who else on the forum has one of these apparently rare-ish dials?Name:  IMG_5310.JPG

    Just searched on chrono24 for 2004 Explorers, couldn't find any with similar spacing as your Explorer.

    Yeah it's a strange bird. I've seen some go for sale on some old listings on this site, and the TRF site has a lengthy discussion on the anomaly.

    That is interesting, made me look closer at my K series polar 16570.

    Completely normal for the F series. The font at the time lead to the quirky spacing.

    My F series has the same spacing btw. I do enjoy the look since it is an oddball.

    Interesting. My F serial has that as well. I did not know that. Thanks for sharing.
