A New and Unworn Steel Rolex Explorer 36mm, Stunning Black Dial, Model Ref: 124270, Complete Set, 2022. 

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 movements. The Explorer is possibly the most understated of Rolex’s various sports watches, certainly more understated than the Submariner or Daytona, yet it still remains very popular and a good value watch from Rolex. All good Rolex collectors should have at least one Explorer reference in their collection in our opinion, a little like the Omega Speedmaster Moon Watch!

What’s On Offer 

Its highly legible hour markers, extremely resilient  Oyster-steel case and waterproofness 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 the mainstay of this reference but 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. 

A particularly handsome example, the steel and black colourway really knock it out of the park on this watch, brand new, mint condition, complete with box and papers. The ideal everyday luxury watch, perfect for every occasion.
