Created following the historic ascent of everest in 1953, the explorer embodies the spirit of audacity and adventure. it features a smooth bezel and a black dial with emblematic 3-6-9 hour markers. its 39mm oyster case is robust with a refined three-piece link oyster bracelet in oystersteel.

The 18ct gold hour markers of the explorer ii are coated in black to create a contrast with the white dial for better legibility in any conditions. on the black-dial version of the watch, the black base of the hands blends with the dial to create a floating effect – a nod to the 1971 original model.

Ed viesturs is one of only a handful of climbers in history, and the only american, to reach the summits of all of the world’s fourteen 8,000-metre (26,000 feet) peaks without supplemental oxygen. in 2005, with his ascent of the 14th summit – annapurna − one of the world’s most treacherous peaks, viesturs was awarded national geographic’s adventurer of the year. in all, viesturs, equipped with an oyster perpetual explorer ii, has made 21 ascents of mountains that are more than 8,000 metres high, including mount everest seven times. @ed_viesturs

The signature feature of the explorer ii is the 24-hour display with its striking orange hand and a fixed, satin-finished bezel in oystersteel. the 24 hour markings are engraved on the bezel, making them resistant to any impact and ensuring legibility.

Still ticking: the first explorer ii launched in 1971. heir to the explorer, it introduced the arrow-shaped, orange 24-hour hand and a fixed bezel with 24 hour graduations, enabling daytime hours to be distinguished from night. for polar explorers, volcanologists and speleologists, the explorer ii became the watch of choice.

Using a silicone pad, the dial printer transfers the imprint of the words or motifs from the plate to the dial with astounding precision, endowing the face of the watch with a personality of its own.

The rolex crown, hour markers and hands of the oyster perpetual are made out of 18ct white gold for a subtle sheen.
