Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer - Gold and Steel - Model Ref: 124273 - Unworn, 2022 Box and Papers

£10250.00 GBP

A New and Unworn, Mint Condition Two Tone, Gold and Steel Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer 36mm, Stunning Black Dial, Model Reference 124273, A Complete Set! 

The Rolex Explorer was launched in 1953, based on another iconic Rolex model; the 'Bubbleback'. The Bubbleback grew out of Rolex's development of self-winding (automatic) movements. The Explorer is possibly the most understated of Rolex’s various sports watches, certainly more understated than the Submariner or Daytona, yet it remains popular and a good value watch from Rolex. Most Rolex collectors will want at least one vintage or modern Explorer watch in their collection, it is a little like a Speedmaster moon watch, all good collections should have at least one Speedmaster!

What’s On Offer 

Its highly legible hour markers, extremely resilient 'Oystersteel' and waterproof Oyster case, have made it a tool watch for exploration.

The dial is the distinctive face of a Rolex watch, the feature most responsible for its identity and readability. The latest Explorer model’s characteristic 3, 6 and 9 numerals are still its trademark and are now filled with a luminescent material emitting a long-lasting blue glow, like the hour markers and hands. At 36mm the new generation Explorer has returned to the size of the original model launched in 1953. 

The opulent two-tone configuration of this Explorer combined with the rich black dial really looks fantastic. This is a new, 2022 model in mint condition complete with its original box and papers. It certainly won't be around for long.
