Oyster, 42mm, Oystersteel
Launched in 1953 as the ultimate expedition and mountaineering watch, the Explorer draws on decades of Rolex experience in the Himalayas. It is designed for optimal readability even in the dark, a crucial feature for scans. The Rolex Explorer II, first released in 1971, is the natural heir to the original Rolex Explorer, but with a character of its own. A robust and highly refined tool watch, the Explorer II quickly became the watch of choice for cavers, volcanologists, and polar and jungle explorers, thanks to its specially designed features.
