Strong, robust and elegant
Needless to say, the Explorer impresses with its robustness and functionality, as well as its sporty-elegant design. The distinctive Mercedes hour hand that can also be found on the famous Rolex Submariner is characteristic for this men’s watch. Another distinctive feature is the use of Roman numerals at three, six and nine o’clock, which assists for easy legibility.
The Explorer was designed to withstand any situation and environment. The Twinlock winding crown guarantees a waterproof timepiece to 100 metres thanks to two sealed zones. Inside the case, the Paraflex shock absorber ensures the movement’s resistance to any form of shock. The movement of the Explorer (Ref. 214270) is a calibre 3132 by Rolex with a self-winding and solid Perpetual mechanism. The case of the Rolex Explorer is shaped of 904L stainless steel, which balances its simple elegance with solid durability.
Just like its successor, the Explorer II, the original Explorer is equipped with the legendary three-piece Oyster bracelet. The Explorer I is designed to optimally work in worst case scenarios including cases of shock, harsh weather conditions, and high levels of humidity. This unique wristwatch is not only a symbol of free spirits, but an ideal companion for any and all adventures in life.
