Discover Rolex's Latest Version of the Explorer
The Oyster Perpetual Explorer in Oystersteel and yellow gold features a distinctive black dial with characteristic 3, 6, and 9 numerals with a Chromalight display. Its highly legible hour markers and extremely water-resistant Oystersteel 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 now filled with a luminescent material emitting a long-lasting blue glow, like the hour markers and hands.
An Established Icon
The Oyster Perpetual Explorer imparts a fresh elan to the sober, clean lines that have long established it as an icon. The smooth bezel in 18-karat yellow gold is robust yet elegant, and in perfect harmony with the Explorer’s iconic heritage.
A Meeting of Two Metals
Gold is coveted for its luster and nobility. Steel reinforces strength and reliability. Together, they harmoniously combine the best of their properties. A true Rolex signature, Rolesor has featured on Rolex models since the early 1930s and was trademarked as a name in 1933. It is one of the prominent pillars of the Oyster collection.
The Oyster bracelet is a perfect alchemy of form and function, aesthetics, and technology, designed to be both robust and comfortable. It is equipped with an Oysterlock folding clasp, which prevents accidental opening and the Easylink comfort extension link, also exclusive to Rolex. This ingenious system allows the wearer to increase the bracelet length by approximately 5mm, providing additional comfort in any circumstance.
The Explorer is equipped with caliber 3230, a movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex, launched by the brand in 2020. At the forefront of watchmaking technology, this self-winding mechanical movement led to the filing of several patents, and offers fundamental gains in terms of precision, power reserve, resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, convenience, and reliability. Caliber 3230 incorporates the Chronergy escapement patented by Rolex, which combines high energy efficiency with great dependability.
