Despite its status as a tribute to one of mankind's greatest achievements, the Explorer has always been Rolex's most understated sports replica watch. It doesn't have the glitz and glamour of a fake rolex Submariner, GMT-Master, or Daytona, but it has the pure quality of a Rolex tool watch with the durability, accuracy, and readability you'd expect when you're walking on clouds and snow.
