With Rolex on the roof of the world. After several failed attempts, Sir Edmund Hillary and his Nepalese partner Tenzing Norgay succeeded in 1953 in climbing Mount Everest, the highest mountain on earth at 8848 metres. On his arm he wore a forerunner of the Explorer by Rolex, a watch that already at that time withstood the extreme conditions of cold and height. Modern Explorer is proud of this not insignificant heritage. The housing, made of a solid stainless steel block, resists shocks and blows and is also particularly resistant to corrosion. The "Chromalight" luminous material on hands and indexes also enables perfect readability even in poor light and weather conditions. With a diameter of 42 millimetres, the slightly larger Bruder Explorer II even has a date display and a 24-hour display to ensure that you never lose sight of the big picture on research trips around the world.
