Explorer I & II

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.

The new Explorer I

From the very beginning, the Swiss company has been associated with daring discoverers and inquisitive researchers and has therefore always attached great importance to producing watches that are robust and can withstand all adversities. After Rolex supported the dangerous missions to climb the seemingly invincible Mount Everest in the 1950s and finally succeeded with a watch that was later named Explorer, Rolex's Explorer I and II models became synonymous with adventure and discovery. First introduced in 1953, Rolex's modern Explorer I is proud of its heritage.The housing, made of a solid stainless steel block, resists shocks and blows and is also particularly resistant to corrosion. The solid material nevertheless makes the luxury watch appear simple and elegant and enables easy care. The blue "Chromalight" luminous mass on the hands and indexes of the handmade dial also enables perfect readability even in poor light and weather conditions. The otherwise very discreet Rolex Explorer I also stands out due to the fact that only the numbers three, six and nine are represented as digits. The interior of the Rolex Explorer I also impresses with the accuracy of the movement with calibre 3132 and a mechanism that can wind the luxury watch independently (e.g. reference 214270).

The Explorer II - a cult watch since 1971

In 1971, the Swiss watch brand presented another watch model in the Explorer category: the Rolex Explorer II (e.g. reference 216570). This was reissued in 2011 for the 40th anniversary and was also made of the robust stainless steel alloy, which was used in both the technical and chemical sectors of industry as well as in the manufacture of the Rolex Explorer I. The mechanical movement of the Rolex Explorer II of calibre 3187 allows the use of a fourth hand in addition to the three usual hands. This orange hand made the first Explorer II from Rolex a cult watch. The shape and design of the fourth hand of the new model is also similar to that of the original Explorer II and still takes twice as long to circulate as a normal hour hand. This enables a 24 hour display. In this way, the Rolex Explorer II can represent a second time zone and is highly appreciated by watch collectors and watch lovers. With a diameter of 42 millimetres, the slightly larger brother of the Rolex Explorer I also stands out from the old Explorer II with a diameter of 40 millimetres in size. It even has a date display so you never lose track of time on expeditions around the world.
