Watches Every Man Should Own – The Adventure Watch
There are certain wardrobe staples that every stylish man needs to own: a classic blue blazer, the perfect dress shoe, a well-tailored suit – these are all givens. But as we’ve stated many a time before, no ensemble is truly complete without the finishing touches that elevate an outfit to refinement. More often than not, the final piece of the sartorial puzzle is a well chosen wrist watch.
A timepiece says a lot about its wearer, and we’re here to make sure you’re making the right statement. Join us in our series outlining the best choices for a fully rounded watch wardrobe with the timepieces that every man should own.
The Rolex Explorer II is quite possibly the ultimate manly man watch. The watch is “the ultimate reference chosen by pioneers and those with a spirit of adventure.” In fact, the first Explorer was created as a tribute to the ultimate explorer – Sir Edmund Hillary, first man to mount Mt. Everest.
The Explorer II, debuted in 1971, is the newest generation of this illustrious watch. With a 24-hour hand and sleek 42mm case, it’s no wonder it’s the favorite watch of speleologists everywhere (that’s cave diving in layman’s; man-cave diving if you prefer). Beyond its impeccable record as an adventurous watch, the Explorer II is the ultimate in rugged luxury – it’s the watch that connotes effortless fearlessness, intrigue, and a propensity for rock polar exploring – regardless of whether or not you partake in any of those activities.
Essentially, this is the watch that makes you look cool.
