Here at BaselWorld, Rolex unveils the new Oyster Perpetual Explorer II, enlarged from 40 to 42mm and housing the new calibre 3187 designed and manufactured by Rolex. Crafted in a 904L stainless steel superalloy, polished and satin finished, the watch features a fixed bezel, winding crown, TWINLOCK double waterproof system, sapphire crystal with a scratch-resistant sapphire CYCLOPS lens (2.5 ×) over the date and is water-resistant to 330 feet.
The Officially certified Swiss chronometer offers 24-hour hand GMT with independent rapid-setting of the hour hand. The watch features 31 jewels and a self-widing bi-directional perpetual rotor. It offers 48 hours of power reserve. Dial choics are white lacquer with luminescent hands or black satin finished. It will retail for 7,400 Swiss francs – but any way you do the translation – it’s a bully of a watch.
