Being heavily biased on the chronograph watches, I was really into this impressive Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer II watch. Characterized by rugged durability and reliability, this professional timekeeping instrument will surely become an instant favorite among mountaineers, speleologists and polar explorers.

This Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer II watch features an imposing 40 mm case, rendered in 904L steel. At 3 o’clock it features a Twinlock winding crown, crafted from the same materials as the case and skillfully protected by shoulders. The model is built to be water-resistant up to 100 meters. The case carries a fixed 24-hour graduated bezel, which holds in place a top quality sapphire crystal. It is equipped with a Cyclops lens, located over a date aperture at 3 o’clock.

Under this glass is an appealing and functional dial which is dressed in white. The display comprises triangle, round and rectangular-shaped hour-markers, which is absolutely an interesting part of this stylish watch. Outlined in black, they produce a striking contrast with the face of the model. The hallmark feature of the Oyster Perpetual Explorer II watch is its ability to display two different time zones simultaneously.

The dial is completed with central hours, minutes and seconds, indicated by means of black and white charismatic hands. The second time-zone can be read off from a 24-hour red hand, tipped with a black and white arrow. Allied with the numerals and hour-markers, presented on the bezel, it enables the user to distinguish night hours from those of day.

Housed in the case of the Rolex watch is a COSC-certified automatic calibre 3186 movement. It incorporates a perpetual rotor. The caliber operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and boasts a48-hour power reserve. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer II watch is teamed with a steel bracelet, closed with an Oysterlock clasp. If you find it unaffordable for you, you can go for the Rolex replica watches available on the internet. Buying Rolex replica watches will definitely be a much better choice for budget conscious individuals.
