The Rolex Explorer combines precision, robustness, and reliability to create the ultimate adventurers’ watch. It has accompanied explorers on some of the most daring missions known to humankind, including the first-ever Everest summit by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay in 1953. Designed to withstand the toughest conditions in the world, it includes the necessary features to do just that. The Rolex Explorer leaves you safe in the knowledge that it has seen the extremes of the planet and returned unscathed, whether that’s mountain peaks, polar environments, or underground caving expeditions.

Crafted from Rolex’s high-performance Oystersteel alloy, the Explorer is both extremely resistant and highly polishable, ensuring it maintains its beauty in even the harshest of environments. The simple dial eschews unnecessary complications, with the whole watch being optimised for legibility, functionality, and reliability. To this effect, the plain black dial and bold Arabic numerals, along with the luminescent markings and chromalight display enable superb visibility in both night and day.

A self-winding mechanical movement with 48-hour power reserve ensures low maintenance, freeing explorers to focus on the mission at hand. The Oysterlock folding clasp prevents accidental opening and the Easylink comfort extension link allows you to increase or decrease the bracelet length by 5mm at any time. A no-frills watch designed for the harshest environments, the Rolex Explorer is available only in steel. It is waterproof to 100 metres.
