The history of Rolex is inextricably linked to the visionary spirit of Hans Wilsdorf, its founder. In 1905, at the age of 24, Hans Wilsdorf founded a company in London specialising in the distribution of timepieces. He began to dream of a watch worn on the wrist. Wristwatches were not very precise at the time, but Hans Wilsdorf foresaw that they could become not only elegant, but also reliable.
The Explorer is inspired by Replica Rolex’s decades of experience in the Himalayas, and pays tribute to the first successful ascent of Mount Everest in 1953 by an expedition equipped with Replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual chronometers. It was first launched that very year as the ultimate expedition and mountaineering watch.
