Beautiful bracelet watch in steel. Round case. Screw-down crown and caseback. Fixed steel bezel graduated over 24h. Black dial with date at 3 o’clock. Arrow hand for 24h indication. Chronometer-certified automatic movement.
The famous Explorer 2 appeared in 1967, its distinctive feature being an additional orange-yellow hand in the shape of an arrow, hence its nickname of freccione given by Italian merchants. It also features a fixed bezel with 24-hour graduation, enabling the wearer to read the time in a quarter of a second and know whether it’s day or night, indispensable for professionals such as speleologists who work underground for long periods or even several days. This is truly a tool watch for explorers.
