The Rolex Explorer is dedicated to mountaineering and exploration. Since the late 1920’s, the watch has been using the world as a testing ground to continually improve to prove itself to withstand the world’s extreme conditions. Depending on the watch model, it generally showcases a 42 mm Oystersteel watch casing, optional black or white dial, oyster bracelet, equipped with a high precision 3187 calibre, a self-winding mechanical movement along with a 24-hour fixed bezel. The Explorer II offers greater resistance and is able to absorb more shock.
Designed for extreme resistance, the Rolex Explorer II watch offers an exquisite polished finish, built with alloys commonly used in high-tech, aerospace, and chemical industries. The initial Explorer II model was created with speleologists, volcanologists, and polar and jungle explorers in mind. It was rumored that the legendary actor and racer, Steve McQueen, wore a Rolex Explorer II watch, so fans have nicknamed this accessory the “Steve McQueen Explorer.”
