A History of the Rolex Explorer – the watch that reached the peak of Everest

 

The Rolex Explorer, like many other Rolex wristwatches, has a very interesting history. In the 1950s, Rolex began to produce professional watches meant for aviators, divers, explorers, and other professionals. The Rolex Explorer was one of the watches produced during this period. They were so popular among professionals that these watches were dubbed the watches of achievers. In 1953, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay undertook an expedition known as Sir John Hunt’s expedition. The rumor goes that both explorers were equipped with Oyster Perpetual watches, but it was confirmed that Tenzing Norgay was wearing a Rolex Explorer during his climb. Rolex company had been sponsoring summit expeditions since the early 1930s, but they weren’t the only one. Other brands like Smith, a British watch company, was also sponsoring the expedition. During this time, the Rolex GMT Master and Submariner began to be released. They soon achieved extraordinary amounts of success.

 

Some of the unique characteristics that define the Rolex Explorer and which make it a charming watch are its black dial and 3,6,9 Arabic numeral hour markers. Celebrities and professionals have worn the watch alike. The watch has become extremely popular across the globe as well in places like Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Japan. The reason for the Explorer’s huge success is greatly due to Takuya Kimura. Takuya Kimura is an actor who achieved much success through the film Love Generation and in the film, he wore a Rolex Explorer (reference number 14270). However, this watch did not become so popular solely based on an actor. The watch has been deemed attractive and has achieved huge success for its quality. There is much history tied to it as well.

 

After several years, Rolex developed and released a newer model of the Rolex Explorer under the reference number 6350. This newer model had a dial that was easy to read and it had a special lubricant that could be used in it so that the wristwatch could operate at extreme temperatures. Some have indicated that the range lies between -20 degrees Celcius and +40 degrees Celcius. This has made the model a very reliable watch and many explorers beyond Norgay have used this watch to climb the barriers of the Earth. Some of the characteristics that define the Explorer as a distinct image have actually been elements found in separate watches as far back as the early 1900s. However, this doesn’t mean the Explorer is an unoriginal watch. Quite the contrary, the watch has combined these elements in a unique and elegant fashion. The large triangle mark at the 12 o’ clock markers had been previously adopted by Rolex watches used in the 1930s with Arabic and Roman numeral dials. The 3,6,9 hour markers could also been found in earlier Cushion Oyster watches. Regardless, the Explorer combines them in a pristine and perfect fashion.

 

When Rolex made the decision to produce the Explorer, they were unsure of its market success. To test the water, they combined elements of the Explorer with already existing models. The Air King Explorer was one example of this statement. This model used the characteristic 3,6,9 black luminous dial. A separate instance was with the Dress Explorer watch, which adopted the “Explorer” logo on the dial. These “test” models became very rare, especially when Rolex discontinued them to produce full Explorer models since they were so popular.

 

In 1953 and not much later, Rolex also produced the Rolex Explorer reference 6350 and 6150 soon after. The black dial had a print that read “officially certified chronometer” and the dial had a unique Honeycomb decoration. The movement within these watches was the A296. In 1959, the 6150 was discontinued. Soon after, the 6610 reference model began to be produced. It looked similar to its predecessor but it had a new Calibre 1310 movement and the Bubble Back was changed to be flat.
