Rolex Explorer review



This timepiece is a true marvel.  Updated for 2016, yet as stylish and opulent as ever the new Explorer is a must have for the discerning watch owner.


The Oyster perpetual explorer boasts an enhanced legibility thanks to its superb luminescent display with a long lasting glow and the patented Chroma light display.

Exploration and Rolex go absolutely hand in hand; this pioneering relationship was cemented in the 1930s where Rolex kitted out numerous Himalayan expeditions.  These expeditions helped shape the Oysters of the past and similar features remain in this 2016 version.

The Oyster accompanied Sir Edmund Hilary to the very top of Mount Everest; this iconic partnership lives on today in the reputation of the Explorer.  Quite simply it is a unique timepiece without peer.
