While the Submariner was designed to operate in the depths of the ocean, the Explorer II was made to travel deep within the Earth itself. The fixed bezel with 24 hour markers, paired with the orange 24 hour hand, made it possible for cave explorers and scientists to maintain proper sleep cycles while going days, or even weeks, without seeing the sun. Rolex recently updated this model, giving it an orange 24 hour hand as a tribute to the original version, and a more substantial 42mm case. This watch comes with its original box, booklets, and our one year warranty.
