While the Explorer was developed for use by outdoor adventurers such as mountain climbers, the Explorer II was developed for working in dark environments, such as caves and polar regions. The case, just like its predecessors, is waterproof up to 100 meters and is paired with a secure three-link Oyster bracelet and a folding Oysterlock clasp. The Explorer II, however, focuses on optimal visibility with the addition of a dial topped with luminous hour markers and Mercedes hands and a 24-hour timing bezel. A dedicated hand circles the dial once every 24 hours, allowing the wearer to sync with GMT time as well as distinguish between day and night hours. These functions give the Explorer II a distinct look that is sure to make a statement no matter where you choose to wear your ref. 16550.
