The hands are now broader and longer compared to the previous version.

The Explorer’s Oyster case, guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres / 330 feet, is crafted from corrosion-resistant 904L stainless steel and has a diameter of 39 mm.

The fluted case back is hermetically screwed down with a special tool that allows only Rolex watchmakers to access the calibre 3132, a self-winding 4 Hz (28,800 vph) mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex and featuring a blue Parachrom hairspring insensitive to magnetic fields and particularly resistant to temperature variations and shocks. It offers a power reserve of 48 hours.Side of Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer Ref. 214270 02
The Explorer is fitted on a solid-link Oyster bracelet in 904L steel with an Oysterlock safety clasp that prevents accidental opening. It features the Rolex-patented Easylink rapid extension system that allows the wearer to easily increase the bracelet length by approximately 5 mm.

The new Explorer carries the Superlative Chronometer certification applied to the fully assembled watch, after casing the movement, to guarantee precision, power reserve, waterproofness and self-winding.Side of Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer Ref. 214270
