It’s the perfect watch for those who brazenly go out into the world to create experiences no one else would. The Rolex Explorer is comprised of several different styles and designs to cater to you. If you’re looking for a watch to take with you anywhere you go, here are the five best (in no particular order) Rolex Explorer watches for you to choose from.
1997 Rolex Explorer I 14270 Black Dial
It’s as classic as any watch could be. It’s almost unassuming in its simplicity, but the Rolex I is one of the brand’s best-selling watches. It features everything you know Rolex to be good for. The solid Oystersteel stainless steel bracelet and clasp gives this watch an incredibly strong body. The stunning black dial design elevates the readability of the watch’s markers, which are simple and clean. Linear markers that accentuate the smooth bezel surround the Arabic numerals on the three, six, and nine o’clock positions. All in all, it’s a beautiful watch that uses an unparalleled self-winding mechanical movement. This particular Rolex is one that will never go out of style.
