One of the most wearable and multi-purpose wristwatches made by Rolex, the Explorer’s strongest suit is its simplicity. It allows for excellent legibility under any condition and grants the watch a vibe which is at the same time elegant and suave as well as masculine and sporty. Truly a watch that works equally well at the beach as in the boardroom. In fact, the dial layout is so iconic that all dials with Arabic numerals at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock can be called “Explorer dials”. The present specimen is ofered in excellent, unpolished condition and complete of its original sale accessories.
