Our Opinion

We are delighted to offer this very special commemorative limited-edition Rolex SAS EXPLORER II that has retained all its protective stickers and is practically new old stock N.O.S condition.

This very special commemorative military piece was offered only to be serving SAS soldiers in recognition of their respective careers with the SAS – Special Air Services.

It is believed there were only 100 of these Rolex SAS commemorative pieces produced and all of them were purchased through Rolex London.

SAS Regiment History And Explorer II Details

The British Special Air Service (SAS) was founded in 1941 as a Special Operations division of the British Army and has ever since remained one of the most respected military organizations in the world. Despite its absolute secrecy, the unit is rumoured to employ 500 active soldiers who underwent extreme recruitment and training programs.

Perpetuating their long-lasting relationship with Military forces, Rolex granted 2012 - SAS soldiers the opportunity to acquire a highly personal and exclusive example of the Explorer II, reference 216570. While most of the known SAS Rolex Explorer II watches bear a black dial, the present example was fitted with a white dial.

Property of the original owner, this limited-edition white Explorer II reference 216570 is preserved in practically New Old Stock condition, retaining its original protective stickers.

On the side of the case, the motto of the SAS ‘Who Dares Wins’ is engraved. The case back is also decorated with the SAS emblem (a dagger with wings) and displays the officers' unique service number.


Inner & outer boxes.
Guarantee/warranty card.


This is a very rare and increasingly collectable white dial SAS Explorer II. It is accompanied by all its original Rolex accessories and still has in place all its factory protective stickers on the case and bracelet.

As you can appreciate with such a rare Rolex SAS Explorer we have reached out to our trusted and recognised leading authorities in the Rolex military community. They are in total agreement with our understanding and findings of this Rolex military watch.
