Setting your Rolex ExplorerBack to Articles
The Rolex Explorer was born from an extreme exhibition of human achievement, when Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay ascended to Mt Everest's peak. Norgay wore a Rolex Oyster Perpetual on his wrist that would eventually be branded, the Explorer. The Explorer has always been a little over looked in the Professional range from Rolex. It has a small, yet refined design that has remained relatively unchanged since 1953.
The latest Explorer has an iconic black dial with Chromalight hour markers and hands, which makes the time easy to read in even in the darkest of conditions.
To set the time on your Rolex Explorer simply unscrew the crown and pull it out to the first notch before rotating the crown until the hands show the desired time. Finally push the crown back in and screw it back up to seal the watch.
