Rolex Explorer I History:
The Rolex Explorer I is a watch that meets simplicity at its finest. Born out of the spirit of expedition and mountaineering, the Explorer is a minimally designed sports watch that is ready to wear for anything life may through at you. Available from 1953, the range has changed since its first model of release but the elements that make up an Explorer watch remain the same; an Oyster steel case, the eye-catching "three, six and nine" Arabic numerals, and a pair of Mercedes hands.
