The Rolex Explorer is the perfect companion for all those consumed by wanderlust. It may not be as sporty as Submariners, GMT’s, or even Daytona’s, but this Rolex model treks its own path- finding its roots on the Himalayan mountain range back in the early 1930’s. That’s right, the Rolex Explorer was designed for and inspired by the adventurous community, with early prototypes being used by avid climbers. While the Daytona’s and Submariners seem to get all the attention, being flashed around by high level diplomats and oil barons, the Rolex Explorer has drawn the attention of silent achievers of a different level.
The popularity of the Explorers spiked when Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, the first climbers to reach the summit of Mount Everest, sported Rolex Explorers as their trusted timing instrument. It was also the preferred timekeeper of deep-sea divers who dared to go down 35,000 feet where even sunlight dare not penetrate. The fact of the matter is that the 36mm Rolex Explorer has a very devote following that true connoisseurs understand. The updated version of the Rolex Explorer, the Rolex Explorer II, is much larger, with a case measuring 39 mm and features new shock absorber technology and a Parachrom hairspring, along with a traditional tight locking clasp that fits the watch snugly on your wrist. The broad bezel and softly curved lugs reflect the expert craftsmanship that is evident in the glossy finish.
