Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer

11:25 AM

After decades of gaining expertise on how the Rolex Oyster Perpetual model performed under extreme conditions (including scaling the Himalayas) Rolex released the first in a series of wristwatch models built specifically for such endeavors. The Explorer model was originally released in 1953 with new features including the Twinlock winding crown that is designed as a failsafe to keep water out of the case.

In 2010, Rolex upgraded the iconic timepiece from a 36mm case to a 39mm case. It features a smooth bezel, black dial and the Explorer's unique hour hand design with a 3132 self winding mechanical movement equipped with Rolex's parachrom blue hairspring and Parallax shock absorber. Made with Rolex's 904L steel and featuring the oyster bracelet, this is one of the most simple and sturdy models available.

The Explorer is classic and elegant, with smooth, clean lines and a very clear display. Although many other Rolex models provide additional features that may excite buyers, this model is ideal for those with an understated but elegant aesthetic.

The suggested retail price for the Explorer (reference # 214270) is 6,200 Swiss Francs or approximately $6,503 US according to current exchange rates.
