Last batch of tritium Explorers from 1997. Excellent preserved example that is a true classic and versatile piece.
Rolex Explorer I
One of the very first models built to meet the demands of a certain professional. For example Sir John Hunt who ascended the Mount Everest in 1953. This was the first rugged expedition it was issued for but definitely not the only one. No wonder Rolex states it has been “Designed to conquer the world”.
Over the years the Explorer I has been made in various executions and there is one thing that a lot (definitely not all; like some early pieces) have in common, the so-called 3-6-9/ Explorer dial.
