Incoming New Addition! Explorer II black dial!

Sep 14, 2021,19:01 PM

20 years ago, my first Rolex, which i sold some years later, was a Rolex Explorer white dial.  Of course looking back i regret selling it but I always told myself I would get another Explorer at one point.  I had shared this with my AD as i have other reference I am trying to hunt for as well.  I guess I was happily surprised when i got the call and could not resist on the new black dial and its sexy orange accent.  So far my first impression are really great!  From its size, weight, looks, feels, bigger hands (compared to other Rolex reference), perfect chronometry, everything!  And of course it triggers nostalgia for me.  Here are a few pictures:

I course i will accessorized with some orange straps at one point , but for now I am enjoying the bracelet fit which i love!  I have a feeling this one will stay in the collection for good!  
Thanks for looking.  Chronometer

Indeed no traveling case for now

I never was a fan, but all of a sudden I understood. Understated tool watch that I would love to acquire one day. Congratulations Yacomino!

It’s my favorite Rolex and there’s nothing like that new watch smell! 😅

Thanks! Well for sure it feels like Xmas on the wrist!

Love it

This model brings dreams of hallmark adventures. If I am to go to Nepal again, I would not go without this. But I cannot afford it…it is so expensive on the grey market now.

Thanks cookies. A great adventure watch indeed

Congrats my friend!

That’s an awesome pick-up and one which will allow you to continue to showcase your strap mastery. Am I wrong in pointing out that it’s the only Rolex in your collection? Enjoy it, my friend Hussam

Thank you Andy!

Congrats to you… a very worthy recipient of this model 👍

I too had a white dial version from roughly 20 years ago, which I gave to my son- in- law ten years ago. I replaced it with another white dial from the previous release a year ago. The black dial looks wonderful on your wrist… I really like the large case...

I got the white dial 3 months ago.

Thanks! Very cool in the white dial as well! Any wristshot?

Here you go.

 By: Skyrider01 : September 15th, 2021-18:14
I find the white wears a little bigger than the black so it may have been better in a 40 or 41mm, but I still love it and it’s a keeper. ...

Good choice my friend, warm congratulations. 👍
