ExplorerNew Model 2021Oyster, 36 mm, Oystersteel and yellow gold

The Oyster Perpetual Explorer in Oystersteel and yellow gold features a distinctive black dial with characteristic 3, 6, and 9 numerals with a Chromalight display.

Its highly legible hour markers, extremely resistant Oystersteel and waterproofness have made it a tool watch for exploration.

Black dial

Optimal legibility in any situation

The dial is the distinctive face of a Rolex watch, the feature most responsible for its identity and readability. The latest Explorer model’s characteristic 3, 6 and 9 numerals are now filled with a luminescent material emitting a long-lasting blue glow, like the hour markers and hands.
