Not signed up to this site for too long and just popped into the review section.
Very informative, honest and well written review.

Thanks for taking the time. Great insight , love your logic.
I'm still searching , been through quite a few watches. Leaning towards the latest Explorer 1. Guess it's the "MK ll ".
You giving me reason to pause and consider MKl. Lol

Have been so close many times to one of these but never pulled the trigger. Extremely nice model.

I too often wear the explorer 1 as my daily watch. It totally flies under the radar and is really legible. I got mine from a jeweler in Texas, duffs, that shipped the watch to me in a cardboard box with a paper towel wrapped around it. Idiots. Anyway, years later, I still wear mine , second only to my deep blue which is huge on my wrist by comparison.

The explorer 1 is a gorgeous piece. The Arabic numerals mixed with markers,is stunning. Simple. Love it.

Rolex would certainly be proud of it being used like this!

Just read your story love it! I'm getting ready to pull trigger on MK1. Quick question for you guys in your opinion is it more desirable for future to have a letter serial number "G" or random serial number if condition of the watch is exactly the same?
