The Explorer and the Explorer II were built for the extremes. Over the course of many years, the Explorer has accompanied fearless explorers and scientists on mountain tops, caves, and on polar expeditions, proving its impressive resiliance and reliability. The Explorer features a 24 hour hand that allows adventurers to read the time in a 24 hour format or even read the time for another time zone. The 24 hour time format has proven useful in locations where telling night from day, such as in caves, is not possible. Adding to its impressive resiliance, the Explorer is finished with a polish that maintains its sheen even in extremely harsh environments.
