This has got to be the most adventurous we have gotten here at Grouphunt. Who would have imagined us hunting for something that "doesn't just tell time. it tells history". What's next for us?
Only time will tell (I couldn't resist that).
Anyway, we've heard you classy folks and have paired up with a reputable dealer with brick and mortar retail spaces to bring you the Explorer II. Our partner brings with them over 30 years of dealing in the luxury goods sector. For those of you in the know (and we know there are a ton of you), the biggest concern with most luxury goods purchases would definitely be authenticity followed closely by warranty/after-sales. Fret not, you Roger Federers, we've got these two covered. The watches are covered by Rolex's worldwide warranty and come with authenticity papers (kinda like a credit-card) So go ahead, buy with confidence :)
Something about dictators and the King of timepieces.
- 904L STAINLESS STEEL
Rolex uses 904L stainless steel for its steel watch cases. 904L is mainly used in the high technology, aerospace and chemical industries, where maximum resistance to corrosion is essential. A superalloy, 904L is extremely resistant and highly polishable. It maintains its beauty even in the harshest environments.
The dial is the distinctive face of a Rolex watch, the feature most responsible for its identity and readability. Characterised by hour markers fashioned from 18 ct gold to prevent tarnishing, every Rolex dial is designed and manufactured in-house, largely by hand to ensure perfection.
- THE OYSTER BRACELET
The Oyster bracelet is a perfect alchemy of form and function, aesthetics and technology, designed to be both robust and comfortable. It is equipped with an Oysterlock folding clasp, which prevents accidental opening and the Easylink comfort extension link, also exclusive to Rolex. This ingenious system allows the wearer to increase the bracelet length by approximately 5 mm, providing additional comfort in any circumstance.
- 3187 MOVEMENT
The Explorer II is equipped with calibre 3187, a self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. In addition to the conventional hour, minute and seconds hands, it features a 24-hour hand to display a second time zone. The 3187 is fitted with a Parachrom hairspring and Paraflex shock absorbers, offering greater resistance to shocks and to extreme conditions. Like all Rolex Perpetual movements, the 3187 is a certified Swiss chronometer, a designation reserved for high-precision watches that have successfully passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) tests. Its architecture, in common with all Oyster watch movements, makes it singularly reliable.
- 24-HOUR BEZEL
The Explorer II is equipped with an additional 24-hour display; a dedicated hand circles the dial in 24 hours rather than the usual 12, pointing to a fixed bezel with 24 hour graduations. This function enables the wearer to distinguish the hours of the day from the hours of the night, an essential feature for those who venture into environments where darkness reigns supreme – such as in the depths of caves, or where the sun never sets – like the polar regions in summer.
