Today I just got a shipment of Rolex’s. And in this shipment we received the new Rolex Explorer II with a black dial. We have had this watch before (and have it with a white dial), but the black dial in particular seems to be difficult to obtain these days. Probably because the watch is absolutely gorgeous. When you see it in person it really is a breath-taking piece from Rolex, and I am certain that we will not have it in stock for very long. I first saw this timepiece at Baselworld in 2011 and I mentioned it here.
Rolex created the Explorer originally in 1953 as a tribute to Sir Edmund Hillary’s climb of Mount Everest; Sir Hillary was the first person to achieve this feat. Almost 20 years later, the Explorer II was launched in 1971 and in 2011 we received the new Explorer II pictured above. Since it’s release, we have only received a few of these models as they are quite popular.
