The Explorer 1 Mark II
The Explorer II-40MM
Blue or Green MilGaus
Modern AirKing (Nico Favorite)

These are my favorite steel Rolex options and I am leaning heavily lately towards the Explorer 1 Mark II but 2 years ago was the Explorer II...

The current GMT Master II Pepsi. Really, it does it all. Kent

My favorite GMT is the Black Dial/Bezel with Green GMT hand!

Just not possible from an AD and I wont pay the current grey market prices for the GMT's...But they all are pretty sweet! -D-

I hear you!

I was fortunate enough to get my Pepsi from my AD a couple of years ago. The first and I hope last time I've paid full retail for a Rolex! I can't imagine buying from the gray market. ...  

Not bad at all.

Thanks Echi! I do have 6 other watches but need to check off the Rolex itch and these 4 are the ones that have most intrigued me and fit into the rotation well!

I have always liked the Polar Explorer 2 Dials but recently the black dial and layout of the Explorer 1 is so simple but so pleasing.. I have also come to find that 39MM is a really nice fit on my wrist! I do need to try them on in the flesh but with Role... 

If that is the list:

Explorer 1. Classic, legendary and pure from an esthetic point of view. The others are good though. Follow your heart. Not a bad one in the bunch.

Thanks Roger!

Enjoy the day! -D-

All of them are winners tbh

But, I will go leftfield here and say ExpII 40mm. It is cool and I don’t think Rolex will ever go back to 40mm sadly.. Alex

This might be a must one day anyways if I can find one for a good price.. I like the new ones but I think the 40MM is the one for me!

Who knows with my addiction all 4 could end up in the collection! I passed on the Milgauss blue over a year ago and definitely regret it.. Thanks for the feedback! -D-

I look forward to how this plays out!

Wish you luck in the hunt!!!

From th four above,

it would have to be the Explorer 2 40mm,so versatile. Now if the Explorer 1 was 36mm,,114270,that would be quite another thing

Thanks pmh600!
