EXPLORER II
 
The Explorer's Watch

The Oyster Perpetual Explorer II is the watch of choice when adventure is second nature. Environments such as mountain tops, the oceans, volcanoes and polar regions are favoured terrain for the Oyster. Rolex watches accompanied the ascent of Everest in 1953, and have joined explorers in every corner of the globe, in deserts, at the poles or in the depths of the Earth. In such hostile, unexplored environments, distinguishing day from night can become impossible. For speleogists, who spend days at a time in darkness, or polar expeditions travelling under the midnight sun or through endless night, the Explorer II's 24-hour display is an essential part of their equipment.

Featuring a 24-hour display by means of an additional hand and an engraved fixed bezel, the Explorer II allows the wearer to distinguish daytime from night-time hours. Created in 1971 it was strikingly restyled in 2011 with a case increased in size from 40 to 42mm. With its large dial and luminescent Chromalight display offering excellent legibility in any situation, this watch designed for extremes plays an active part in the privileged relationship that has always united Rolex and exploration.
