The Explorer watched was introduced in 1953. Known for its clean design, it features a clear, easy-to-read black dial, oversized hour markers, and unique 3, 6, and 9 numeral markers. This watch can accurately tell the time no matter how the environment changes. This extraordinary innovation makes the Oyster watch a symbol of accuracy and reliability. It is the accumulation of experience from decades of countless mountaineering journeys in the Himalayas, and further refinement of its watchmaking excellence, resulting in this most durable Oyster watch.
The watch has a sturdy all-steel strap and a new double-buckle winding crown with a double waterproof system. The Explorer is the first Rolex watch designed specifically for professional use. As a result, the explorer type established its symbolic status as never before seen. The clear and simple line design of the new Oyster Perpetual Explorer establishes its position as a classic timepiece and shows fresh vitality. The 904L stainless steel polished bezel is solid and elegant in design and also interprets the explorer type’s classic and timeless tradition.
Water-resistant to 100 meters, the Explorer-type Oyster case is the epitome of ruggedness. The unique middle case is cast in 904L stainless steel, which is highly resistant to corrosion. The triangular grooved bottom cover is screwed down by the exclusive tools of the Rolex watchmaker so that the case is completely sealed.
In 1971, the Explorer II watch was officially launched. A group of the world’s most fearless explorers, mountaineers, and scientists, wearing Explorer and Explorer II watches, went on adventures in harsh environments to test the watch’s reliability. Equipped with a calendar display, other orange 24-hour hands, and a 24-hour scale fixed outer ring, the Explorer II was designed to distinguish day and night easily. It has gradually become the watch of choice for cavers, volcanologists, and polar explorers.
These two Explorer replica watches are versatile and comfortable to wear as timepieces, and their majestic masculinity cannot hide the exquisite shape and size of the lugs. The watch features a newly designed stainless steel case and strap. The 40 and 42 mm cases are made of solid Oystersteel, with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a slightly convex lens at 3 o’clock. For easy access to the calendar.

The hands and hour markers are coated with Chromalight white fluorescent material, which can emit blue light in the dark and is easy to read. The instantly recognizable orange hour hand combined with the graduated bezel indicates the time in the second time zone while clearly distinguishing between day and night. At the same time, to enhance the waterproof performance of the watch, the brand design uses special tools to clamp the pitted bezel to seal the external parts of the clock and has a double-locked winding crown with a double waterproof system and a fine pitted screw-on bottom cover. Hence, it has 100-meter water resistance, an Oyster-style three-grid chain strap, a folding Oyster-style safety clasp, and a 5mm easy-to-adjust chain link extension system for easy wearing and width adjustment.
