Rolex Explorer 6610.

The 6610 is a watch I didn't wear for a while, and I decided to give it some wrist time, this summer. A lovely and beautiful watch, with its dial which got some superb patina and its lollipop second hand. And, of course, it is an Explorer, a line which ha

A little known Rolex. Explorer II 216750

This is my recent purchase. It is an unloved sport Rolex as compared to other ubiquitous models. Many loath it because of it’s 42mm case. I have a 17cm (6.75”) wrist, this 12.4mm thick watch sits on my wrist perfectly. The unique character of this Explore

A Simple Pleasure...

to me is the perfect Rolex if I could only have one. It has great size at 36mm, clear and legible dial with iconic 3-6-9 indexes, you can either dress it up or down. But if your heart says it's the 1500, then you should follow it. Most importantly is that

A Simple Pleasure...

For the longest while I felt the Explorer (1) was the Rolex for me. But which one—the latest iteration, with lumed 3,6,9, edged the watch away from its original versatility, I felt. And then, which movement, size, etc. But recently—last year or so—I've be
