Rolex Explorer II ref. 16570
The Rolex Explorer II, along with the Datejust, GMT Master, and the submariner, constitute Rolex’s most popular watches.
The Rolex Explorer was one of the first wristwatches to be designed for exploration, exploring new lands and varied terrains. While today a solar-powered multifunction watch will serve you well on a distant trek, in the 1950s when real exploration of the poles and the high peaks of the world was taking place, no quartz watch existed. And even today, if you were to attempt to explore the earth’s pole or climb Mt. Everest, the Rolex Explorer might still be a better choice than a quartz device, since these suffer when exposed to high and low temperatures and depend on an external source of power. However, the Rolex Explorer II is guaranteed to work as well as it does day to day even under extreme temperature gradients and with no source of power, except wearing it daily and moving a bit (or winding the crown).
