When it comes to the world of replica watches, Rolex is a brand to behold. Rolex replica watches contain all the class and elegance any watch can have. From sports, watches to luxury watches, these Rolex replicas have managed to produce quality pieces of luxury and precise tools for navigation and aerospace voyaging to cave exploration. Rolex SA therefore has all types of people in mind while designing.
For explorers, Rolex developed the Explorer series and later the Explorer II. The explorer series is one of its kinds in the world with a look that embodies its function. It pioneered some of the elite innovations in the exploration world. This replica watch has a rich history attached to it. Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay wore this watch while they were on the historic ascent on the mountain Everest in 1953. I have to say that this watch has more to offer than what other people think.
Evolution of the Rolex Explorer
The Rolex Explorer has lived ever since 1953 and today we will look at how it has become to be the explorer’s favorite. The first Rolex explorer was first released with the ref no of 6610. It featured a stainless steel Oyster case, which had a 36mm diameter. Its black dial had 3-hour markers, as is the case with most Rolex watches. The watch had Mercedes style hands and a 50m indication just below the Rolex label.
The replica watch has gone through a lot of transformation ever since this time. The ref 1016 was introduced which had an increased waterproof ability of 100m and a Caliber of 1560. Solid links to the bracelet and use of tritium in replacement for radium that was used to make the watch’ luminescent accent were additional changes that have been introduced to the Explorer over the years.
Features of the Rolex Explorer Series
Featuring an Oystersteel model case and a 3132 movement, this replica watch is so alike to the other Rolex models but still so different. Let us go ahead and dive in into the details of the Rolex Explorer.
The 3132 Movement
This replica watch belongs to the 3132 caliber, a movement that is entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex SA. The movement is a self-winding mechanical one. This movement features a Parachrom hairspring and a Paraflex shock absorber a combination that will make this watch resistant to shock. The hairspring is unaltered by magnetic fields and is resistant to changes brought by temperature variations.
These features are all aimed at making this watch an accurate and precise one that will not be affected by the above-mentioned changes whatever the extreme conditions the environment of an explorer presents. This means that the watch would not stop working if the temperatures get dire when an explorer is on top of a mountain or when in the blazing desert with extreme sunrays.
The Oyster Bracelet
A traditional Oyster bracelet is a depiction of form and function and it has existed on wristwatches ever since wristwatches were invented. The Rolex Explorer replica features an Oyster bracelet that is both robust and comfortable. The bracelet is made of Oystersteel, an alloy of 904L steel that is fine and hard and maintains its look for a long time with resistance to any corrosion.
This bracelet has an Oysterlock folding clasp that prevents any accidental opening for safety. This bracelet further has an Easylink comfort extension link that allows the wearer to increase the bracelet by a maximum of 5mm, which is enough to fit your wrist.
This replica watch’s bezel is more of an iconic part rather than a functional one. The bezel has the traditionally resilient smooth non-graduated look. I think that Rolex would have added a graduation feature to make this watch more usable than it was. The bezel is elegant though and you will have few things to complain about.
The Black Dial
This replica watch features a black dial with highly legible Chroma light display. This display has a high lasting blue luminescence, which enables an explorer to easily read it in extreme low light conditions an explorer is accustomed to. The black dial is one of the identity marks that this watch possesses.
Just like any Rolex watch out there, this Rolex replica features a sapphire crystal. Sapphire is one of the hardest materials. It is not only scratchproof but also durable a combination, which makes the crystal of the watch, bold. This means that you would not be having any problems in future in the name of blurred screen that makes it hard for you to read it.
With the above features of the replica, you can be assured that you have a watch for exploration. I have to say this watch can also be an all-rounder. With its fine parts and elegant look, I am sure that you can wear it to the office. For watch enthusiasts, having this piece of jewelry in your collection will complete your set.
