Rolex Re-Issues the Explorer
James Bond famously wore a Rolex long before a lucrative marketing deal mandated a switch to Omega. His creator Ian Fleming based the super spy’s choice of timepiece on his own wrist adornment – a classic Rolex Explorer. At Baselworld, the annual watchmaker’s expo in Switzerland, Rolex just unveiled a new version of the Explorer. The new Explorer is slightly wider, with an updated dial featuring larger hands, and higher caliber stainless steel that’s more chemical and corrosion resistant. The watch has a sapphire crystal and is water resistant to 100 meters. Time to go Exploring, 007.
