Movement

In addition to the conventional hour, minute and seconds hands, the 3187 features a 24-hour hand to display a second time zone. This movement is fitted with a Parachrom hairspring and Paraflex shock absorbers, offering greater resistance to shocks and to extreme conditions. Like all Rolex Perpetual movements, the 3187 is a certified Swiss chronometer, a designation reserved for high-precision watches that have successfully passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) tests. Its architecture, in common with all Oyster watch movements, makes it singularly reliable.

Description

Introduced in 2011, for the first time the Explorer II used a case bigger than those of most other sports-Rolexes - measuring 42mm. The orange 24h hand is a throwback to the vintage 1655.
