    As I am wearing a polar Explorer 265 70, I wonder why I have ignored this watch for so many years. This watch is actually almost the perfect size. It's not too big and not too small. It is lighter than a Submariner or a Sea-Dweller. It's even lighter than the GMT which I've always preferred over the Explorer 2. It has the GMT function which is my favorite function. It has the 3185 movement. That is the same movement that is in my favorite gmts. The only thing it lacks is the rotating bezel. That simply means that I can only track two time zones and not three. The white dial is stunning and very legible this 2002 16-5-70 is keeping about one second a day. Which is what I would expect out of the Rolex movement. It does not appear to have been service based on the lack of case marks in the case back. Therefore it is a fifteen-year-old watch that is still keeping perfect time aesthetically, the crown is small. It has a screw-down crown like a sports watch should have. It has the Cyclops over the date. Well there's some valid criticism of that I have decided that I like it although I could certainly live without it as I do with the sea dwellers.
