WEARING THE WATCH
FOR THE FIRST TIME
Before being worn for the first time, or if it has
stopped, a Rolex watch must be wound manually
in order to function correctly and precisely.
To wind the watch manually, unscrew the winding
crown completely, then turn it several times
clockwise. (Turning in the other direction has
no effect.) A minimum of 25 turns is required for
adequate partial winding. The watch will then
be wound automatically as long as it is worn on
the wrist. Carefully screw the crown back down
against the case to ensure waterproofness.
The green seal accompanying your
Rolex watch is a symbol of its status
as a Superlative Chronometer. This
exclusive designation attests that it
has successfully undergone a series of
specific final controls by Rolex in its own
laboratories in addition to the official
COSC certification of its movement.
This unique testing of its chronometric
precision, waterproofness, self-winding
and reliability pushes back the
boundaries of performance and makes
Rolex the benchmark for excellence
in mechanical watches. For further

THE EXPLORER’S WATCH
The Oyster Perpetual Explorer II is the
watch of choice when adventure is
second nature. Featuring a 24-hour
display by means of an additional hand
and a graduated fixed bezel, the watch
allows the wearer to distinguish daytime
from night-time hours or to read the
time in two time zones simultaneously.
Its 42 mm case, waterproof to a depth
of 100 metres (330 feet), is a paragon
of robustness. The Chromalight
hour markers and hands are filled with
a luminescent material emitting
a long-lasting blue glow. Its winding
crown is protected by a crown guard
that is an integral part of the middle
case. The sapphire crystal, with a
Cyclops lens, is virtually scratchproof.
The Oyster Perpetual Explorer II is
equipped with a self-winding mechanical
movement entirely manufactured
by Rolex.
The Oyster Perpetual Explorer II features
an Oyster bracelet with an Oysterlock
safety clasp and the Easylink comfort
extension link.

CARING FOR
YOUR ROLEX
Thanks to Rolex expertise, your watch
will require very little day-to-day care.
You can help preserve its lustre by
cleaning it occasionally with a microfibre
cloth. You can also wash the case and
bracelet from time to time using soapy
water and a soft brush. After wearing
your watch in the sea, it is important to
rinse it with fresh water to remove any
salt and sand deposits.

Before cleaning your watch, always
ensure that the crown is screwed down
properly against the case to guarantee
waterproofness.

AFTER-SALES
SERVICE
Rolex watch servicing ensures that
your timepiece will continue to perform
optimally and meet Rolex’s stringent
requirements of precision, reliability
and waterproofness throughout its life.
The timekeeping accuracy of your watch
is largely dependent on high-performance
lubricants specially developed by Rolex
to minimise friction and prevent wear
of components. To guarantee continued
accuracy and waterproofness, Rolex
recommends that you periodically return
your watch to an Official Rolex Retailer or
Service Centre for professional servicing.
When your watch is serviced by a Rolex
watchmaker, the watch is completely
dismantled and all of its components are
ultrasonically cleaned. Each individual
component is closely examined and
those that no longer meet Rolex’s
functional and aesthetic specifications
are replaced with genuine Rolex parts.
The movement is carefully lubricated
then electronically tested to guarantee
its timing accuracy; the case and
the metal bracelet are meticulously
refinished to restore their lustre. Your
Rolex then undergoes a series of
rigorous technical tests and checks
21
to guarantee its waterproofness, power
reserve and precision.
After a complete Rolex service, your
watch is covered by a service guarantee.
