First released in 1971, the Rolex Explorer II received an extensive technical and aesthetic makeover for its 40th anniversary in 2011. The size of the case was increased from 40 mm to 42 mm in diameter opening up the dial for better legibility. But the signature feature of this new version is its larger take on the famous “Orange Hand,” an orange 24-hour hand ending in an arrow, mirroring the original Explorer of 1971.
Set on a distinctive white face an additional 12-hour hand provides a second time zone function, and an integrated Cyclops lens magnifies the date display.
The elegant yet sturdy band is 904L stainless steel superalloy which is used in environments such as aerospace and chemical industries, where the highest resistance to corrosion is essential. 904L is incredibly resistant and highly polishable, maintaining its beauty in even the harshest of environments. The steel watch cases by Rolex are made to withstand virtually every environment. With the Rolex Explorer II you can keep on exploring with style and function.Visit us to buy Rolex Explorer in Albuquerque!
