The Rolex Explorer II was first released in 1971. it has carried on for 46 years as a robust, and functional extension of the original Explorer family. The 42mm stainless steel case features a 24 scale bezel for use as a second time zone function. The screw down crown and case back ensure water resistance to 100 meters. In the words of Rolex – The Explorer II swiftly became the watch of choice of speleologists, volcanologists and polar and jungle explorers, thanks to its specially designed features. Personally, I am not acquainted with anyone who falls into one of these very specific groups, but for the everyday adventures and travels of a distinguished gentleman, this watch is the perfect companion. This watch does not come with box or papers.
