Rolex is delighted to launch a new 40 mm model, adding new work to the Explorer series. The Explorer is one of the earliest professional best fake watches launched by Rolex and has been enduring for decades. The new timepiece combines the outstanding features of the Explorer with a more transparent and easier-to-read dial. The new Explorer 40 (Explorer 40) is made of Rolex’s proprietary alloy Oystersteel, which is simple, robust, and corrosion-resistant.
Rolex launched the new Oyster Perpetual Explorer 40 (Oyster Perpetual Explorer 40) with a diameter of 40 mm, enriching the Explorer series.
The original Explorer model was unveiled in 1953 to celebrate the first successful ascent of Mount Everest. Like the Explorer 36 (Explorer 36), the Explorer 40 also continues the original style. The black lacquered dial is decorated with three numbers, 3, 6, and 9, with professional watch hands, integrating the spirit of adventure and perseverance in the watch into the details.
The Explorer 40 is cast in Oystersteel and fitted with an Oyster bracelet. Equipped with Chromalight bright display, it is clear and easy to read no matter the environment; it can emit a long-lasting blue light in the dark and shows a bright white that is particularly conspicuous in daylight. The Explorer 40 has 3230 calibers with advanced watchmaking technology, which can accurately display hours, minutes, and seconds and meet the necessary functions. Like all Rolex luxury replica watches, the Oyster Perpetual Explorer 40 is certified as a Superlative Chronometer chronometer, ensuring the watch performs exceptionally well.
Launched in 1953, the Explorer is a watch that symbolizes Rolex’s indissoluble bond with the world of exploration. As early as the 1930s, the brand had equipped Oyster watches for many expeditions to the Himalayas. These include Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay’s first ascent to the world’s top at 8,848 meters (29,028 feet). With this pioneering move, Rolex hopes to use the vast world as a laboratory to test the performance of watches under natural conditions, thereby improving watches. The opinions and feedback that Rolex received from these expeditions directly impacted the watch’s design, making it more precise, robust, and reliable.
Oyster case, a symbol of water resistance
Guaranteed water-resistant to 100 meters (330 feet), the 40 mm Oyster case of the Explorer 40 is a model of robustness and durability. The middle case of the new model is cast from a solid block of Oystersteel. Rolex watchmakers use brand-specific special tools to tighten the finely grooved bottom cover to seal the case, so only Rolex watchmakers can access the movement. The double buckle lock winding crown has a double waterproof system firmly screwed to the case. The mirror surface is made of anti-reflective sapphire crystal, which is hard to scratch. The waterproof Oyster case of the watch gives the movement the best protection.
Caliber 3230 Perpetual movement
The Explorer 40 is equipped with Caliber 3230, launched in 2020 and entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. This self-winding mechanical movement embodies the superb technology of Rolex and is outstanding in terms of precision, reliability, power reserve, and ease of use.
Made of nickel-phosphorus alloy, this escapement is immune to high strength and magnetic fields. The movement is equipped with a blue Parachrom hairspring made of a unique paramagnetic alloy cast by Rolex. The hairspring remains stable even with temperature changes and has excellent shock resistance. The hairspring is also equipped with a Rolex end ring to ensure the movement maintains regular operation in any position. The balance spring assembly of the movement is equipped with the high-performance Paraflex cushioning device designed and patented by Rolex to improve the shock resistance of the movement. The automatic rotor is equipped with improved ball bearings.
The 3230 movements have a perpetual automatic winding system, and a perpetual oscillating weight winds the movement. The barrel’s structure and the escapement’s excellent efficiency give the caliber 3230 a power reserve of approximately 70 hours.
Oyster bracelet and Oyster safety clasp
Explorer 40 with Oyster bracelet. Introduced in the late 1930s, the three-link Oyster bracelet is sturdy and reliable and is the most widely used strap for Oyster Perpetual watches. The Oyster strap of the new watch is equipped with a folding Oyster safety buckle to prevent the buckle from being accidentally opened. The buckle is also equipped with an easy-to-adjust link extension system developed by the brand, and the wearer can easily extend the strap by about 5 mm.
Superlative Chronometer Certification
Like all Rolex watches, the Oyster Perpetual Explorer 40 has also received the Superlative Chronometer certification established by Rolex in 2015. This unique designation certifies that each watch has successfully passed a series of tests in the Rolex laboratory. In addition, the movements of these watches are also certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Center (COSC). The watch is tested after it is assembled, and the movement is installed in the case to ensure that the watch can exert excellent performance in terms of precision, power reserve, waterproof and automatic winding when worn. The average error of the Rolex Superlative Chronometer is within plus or minus two seconds per day. The precision pursued by Rolex is much higher than the standard of precision timepieces certified by the Swiss Official Observatory.
