Introducing: The New Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer, Now With Chromalight Display, Updated Hands, And Superlative Chronometer Certification
The watch presented above here is certifiably not a modified Rolex. A long way from it. It’s the most recent Explorer which presently comes with another brilliant material inside the model’s natural 3, 6, and 9 numerals just as in the hour markers. Called Chromalight, this elite material radiates an extreme blue gleam, which expands the decipherability of the dial altogether in low light conditions.
Rolex has likewise returned to the hour and moment hands. They are more extensive and more than in past models. The case is generally unaltered. Made in 904L steel, it quantifies a cool 39 mm. Inside, the watch houses type 3132, a self-winding mechanical development with a force hold of 48 hours.
The new Explorer will retail for CHF 6,200. It is fitted on a 904L hardened steel Oyster wristband with Oysterlock security catch. More on Rolex here .
