    Explorer ii 216570 used prices

    Hey all!

    Been a while since Iíve been on the forums. New kids make free time harder to find. Iím in the market for an explorer ii. Looking at the newest 216570. Iíve been looking at the ones for sale and been noticing a pretty large price difference between various sellers. Iíve seen anywhere from $6800-$9000 for a full-set! Am I missing something? What gives?!

    Stay safe

    Couple years ago it was at $3500-$5000 but then recently it got super popular from all the youtubers and price skyrocketed.

    I noticed that! I meant Iím more curious about the price range for an identical watch being sold by different sellers. There is a 216570 for sale for $6800 b&p as well as the same model selling for $9k. Seems like a big difference

    It's really up to the seller to set the price

    There's a couple of interesting recent threads here on the pricing practices during the current pandemic. Generally speaking, it looks like the bigger established sellers are still listing close to the pre-pandemic prices, but the listings stay longer, while the private sellers or smaller sellers who would like $$ quicker has discounted their watches more.

    That being said, a 25% difference in pricing is certainly interesting.

    If I remember correctly, there were 2 different types of lume on this watch.

    Likely the age as well as the reference.

    Rolex margins differ from region to person.

    You will likely be seeing the highest prices as brand new from grey dealers.

    And cheaper ones may be from as old as 2012.

    It just depends on what you're looking for.

    Even a few months age difference in pre owned seems to have a bearing on the price. I was hunting for one last year and the average price for a decent one (box papers, good condition etc) from a trusted seller was at least £800 more than retail. Most were more like £1500+ and for a really good condition newer (18 months or newer) a £2000 premium was common place. I saw a few up at £9000 but I’m sure they were dreaming. At the time I was looking the retail on them was £6250. They seem to all of a sudden be a hard to find watch (excluding the cv19 issues). FWIW my ad reckoned they may have been towards the end of the production run as there’s a good chance it’s going to get a refresh next year for the 50th anniversary. When I sourced mine, the ad reckoned he could get one within 6 months so perhaps that’s worth looking into although that’s another story for another day. Whatever you do, don’t start a thread about availability. It won’t end well. Best of luck sourcing your explorer

    Iíve actually been noticing a lot more of them listed right at the $7k level vs $9k a month ago. I think we are already starting to see corona discounts. I just got a call from an AD yesterday that a new one is available for me there. Unfortunately I had just bought a Grand Seiko diver earlier this week and I need to cool it on the spending for at least a year. I think itís only bound to get even cheaper in the next few months.

    Interesting all around. I was looking for at a couple recent explorer iiís starting with WatchRecon. Saw one priced at $6800 with box and papers and dated 2018. I know some of the 5-digit models were around $7k and less so was curious at the price of the newer model. Still trying to decide what to do. I picked up an omega forgoing the Rolex a few months ago but canít seem to get this model out of my head
