The new Explorer was undoubtedly the most anticipated launch of this year's BASELWORLD by fans of the brand. The number of people gathering at the windows of the Rolex replica watches stand in Basel certainly proves that the company has once again perfectly matched the taste of its fans, sticking to the conservative path set out years ago.
The advertising campaign preceding the fair and the official presentation aroused lively discussions among collectors focusing on the question of whether and to what extent Rolex designers would decide to change the iconic Explorer line. As it turned out in Basel, which was to be expected, Rolex bet on a proven, recognized model, making only minimal modifications. Although lovers of manufacture will probably fall in love with this timepiece, the consistency of Rolex designers, from my point of view, is starting to sound more and more boring.
The new Explorer is a very conservative timepiece in its form, simply emanating simplicity combined with absolutely top quality of workmanship and work. The steel case of the new Explorer has been slightly enlarged compared to the previous one and now measures 39mm. It is made entirely of 904L steel, which is the hallmark of Rolex.
Water resistant to 100m, the case combines polished and satin surfaces. The Twinlock screw-down crown, decorated with the company's logo, guarantees comfortable handling. The steel bracelet is equipped with an Oysterlock clasp system with an easy-to-use, convenient optional extension.
The face of the new Oyster Perpetual Explorer is a simple black dial with applied indexes. These indices and the hour and minute hands are covered with Chromalight. The dial is framed by a distinctive steel ring with the word fake rolex engraved around the perimeter.
The heart of the watch is the self-made automatic caliber 3132 with COSC chronometer certification. The movement is equipped with components created by Rolex: the Parachrom balance spring and the Paraflex vibration compensator. With a 48-hour power reserve, the movement guarantees excellent running values - an element for which Rolex is loved by the masses of mechanical watch enthusiasts.
