It is often said that the versatility of a white dial Rolex is second to none. When paired with a Professional Series watch, the white dial has a sporty and modern feel. At the same time, a formal watch with a white dial offers a timeless tradition based on a classic aesthetic. Whatever your preference, a Rolex replica watch with a white dial is perfect for any season and any occasion. As winter approaches, we’ve compiled a shortlist of our favorite Rolex white dial models that will fit the season wherever you are.  
When it comes to “white dial Rolex,” most people think of the Explorer II. In the second iteration of the model, introduced through the transitional model 16550 in the mid-1980s, the 16550, with its white – aka polar – dial has been a long-time cult favorite, though it has become very popular in recent years. No other exact replica watches in the Rolex catalog have luminous hour markers and Mercedes hands like it, with a black surround to distinguish it from the matching white face. The dial is always highly legible, day or night.
The Explorer II is available with only two dial options, black or white. The black piece is understatedly stealthy, with its phantom hands and a small pop of color. The polar white version is bright and vibrant – not too flashy but not boring either. New for 2022, Rolex has just released a redesigned version of the Explorer II, model 226570, with the same case size and dial color options, but with a new and improved 3285 calibers with slightly updated proportions.
As you may recall, the number 216570 is powered by the caliber 3187, marking the first time that the Explorer II has received its own unique movement, previously all shared with the GMT-Master II collection. It is also the first Polar Explorer II to increase its case size, from 40 to 42 mm – a move designed to broaden its appeal to a more modern audience.
Reference 216570 has a place on our list for many reasons, besides being as bright as freshly fallen snow and its proper “polar” nickname. It is one of the eternal underdogs of the Rolex line that is only now starting to really attract widespread attention. While its more famous tool watches have become less and less tool-like over time, many with gold or platinum cases, the Explorer II remains the quintessential replica Rolex tool watch. The bulletproof stainless steel case, with not even a hint of Cerachrom to be found (not to mention gemstones), is what has made the brand so special in the past, and is the reason the model has gained a steadily growing cult following.
To be sure, the Polar Explorer II is the most iconic white dial Rolex watch you can buy – and they’re still available at a surprisingly low price (at least for now).
