TRF Explorer I Club Thread

We have threads for every other model it seems other than the legendary Explorer. Sorry, this isn't for the Explorer II as I believe there already is a thread for that model.

Let's see them. Modern, vintage, if you got them, show them............

Most underrated sport Rolex IMO. A great watch that's less common than the other sport models....
