Watch details

A rare variation of the vintage classic, most notably for its rail dial, but also for the superior bezel condition. The original bezel is absolutely mint and fresh. Combined with the all white "albino" hands, this is a unique example of this iconic model. 40mm. Stock 37649

Rolex presented the Oyster Perpetual Explorer II, dedicated to polar explorers, speleologists, and all those pushing the boundaries of exploration. The watch featured a distinctive 24-hour hand, an invaluable aid around the poles and beneath ground when you can't tell night from day.
