The Explorer II was initially conceived as a tool watch for speologists. Given the relatively limited market, the model has also attracted interest from businesspeople, those who travel or work in different timezones, as the GMT second hand allows for easy reading of a second time zone. Considered, and certainly by us at Vintage and Prestige, as an attractive alternative to other sports Rolex, given the subtle bezel design, this model has a blend of elegance and durability whilst being eminently usable day to day. The early models are also known as Steve McQueens or Freccione and the latest incarnation is often to be seen on Price Harrys wrist.
