Positioned as an outdoor mountaineering watch, Rolex Explorer is a series with a long history that has been enduring for decades. After the brand launched the 36mm version equipped with Cal.3230 movement in 2021, now the series has added a 40mm version again, coming to us with a diameter that is more in line with today’s aesthetics and wearing habits.
The replica Rolex Explorer 40mm and the 36mm model launched in 2021 are not iterative. At present, the two sizes of the explorer are currently on sale on the official Rolex website. One is the classic size of the series, which has been used for half a century, and it is the appearance that Tanyi should have in the minds of a generation; the other is a size that is more in line with modern aesthetics and wearing habits, and can satisfy the preferences of different players to the greatest extent.
Replica Rolex Explorer 40 224270 is famous for its simple design and strong practicality. Although it is at the entry level, its performance in all aspects is not inferior: the watch uses a combination of Oyster case and Oyster strap, and the middle case is cast from a whole piece of solid Oyster steel, which is different from the higher-end professional models. The watches are consistent. The Oyster case is equipped with a screw-down crown, allowing the watch to achieve a water resistance of 100 meters (330 feet).
At the same time, the professionalism of the Rolex Explorer is also reflected in the use of the oyster safety buckle, which can effectively prevent accidental touch opening. The easy-to-adjust link extension system developed by the brand is also installed in the buckle, which can extend the bracelet by about 5mm without adding a watch link.
From the appearance, replica Rolex Explorer 40 224270 uses a classic and elegant black dial, and the pointer is Rolex’s famous “Mercedes-Benz needle”. This pointer style is highly recognizable. The 3, 6, and 9 hour markers on the dial use Arabic numerals, and the 12 o’clock position is an inverted triangle. The top is covered with a luminous material developed and patented by Rolex, which the brand named “Chromalight”. Different from the Super-LumiNova luminous material widely used in mainstream luxury watches, Rolex watches have switched to Chromalight since 2008. This luminous material appears white in daylight and glows bright blue in the dark.
In addition, the uniqueness of Rolex watches lies in the use of “Oystersteel”. This material belongs to the 904L steel category and is widely used in various high-tech industries (such as aviation and chemical industries). Oystersteel has the advantages of strong corrosion resistance, and it lasts for a long time, with a dazzling luster, and it can still maintain its original luster even after experiencing various extreme environments. Cal.3230 self-winding movement, the same as the 36mm model, is one of the main movements of Rolex today. Compared with the previous generation 3130 movement, the most significant change of the 3230 movement is that the power reserve has been increased from the original 48 hours to 70 hours. The movement adopts a shock absorber and a bearing-type self-winding structure independently designed by Rolex.
