Any help is appreciated. This is my First Rolex.

I was setting the time on my Explorer 2 216570 today, when a co-worker walked by and wanted to take a look at my watch.

He takes a closer look and says that I should have a black rubber o-ring on the crown stem.

He then pulls out the crown on his Tudor Pelagos and he has a black rubber o-ring on his crown them.

He says almost all Rolex watches come with the black rubber o-ring and that a missing one is a great indication of a fake Rolex.

Does anyone know if the 216570 should have a black o-ring seal? I bought my Rolex from a AD, maybe the factory forgot to put one on?

Should I be worried?

Your co-worker is wrong. 216570 employs the twinlock crown and has no visible o ring on the crown tube with the crown unscrewed. Only Rolex's dive watches that employs the triplock crown has that visible o ring.

This info is readily available on Rolex's own website...

a watch is meant to be worn
