Rolex Explorer 5500One of the coolest Explorers we’ve ever seen. We’re talking about the 1961 Rolex Explorer ‘Bulls Eye’, which not only carries the same reference as the Rolex Air-King, but is also equipped with, as you can see on the dial, ‘precision’ Caliber 1520. This specific piece is a little bit more special than most Explorers you’ll encounter due to the fact that this watch is exclusively created for the Canadian Market.
Rolex ExplorerRolex has a storied history of building tool watches dedicated to professional users. In 1953, Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay were the first to reach the summit of Mount Everest, with a Rolex Oyster Perpetual on Hillary's wrist. In honor of the expedition, Rolex released the Explorer later that year.Over the years, the Explorer I has been produced in various executions. Except the very earliest ones, they all have one thing in common: the characteristic 3-6-9 numerals on the dial (the so-called ‘Explorer dial’).
