Explorer II dial

In addition to the normal hour-minute-second hands, the Explorer II model has a separately adjustable GMT hand. Together with the fixed 24h bezel, it allows the wearer to keep track of the time in two time zones and in 24h format. The fixed 24h bezel was originally designed for use by cave explorers, so that they could distinguish between day and night in conditions where this would be otherwise impossible.
