    Rolex Explorer 1 alternatives?

    What alternatives do you have for the explorer 1, 36 or 39mm?



    All of a sudden really interested in the do it all 3 hander.
    You know the type, no bezel, no date, 3 hands and formal enough to pass at dressy occasions.
    I suppose a date could pass.

    The Rolex does it so well, I'm actually unsure that it has any genuine competition bar the limited edition JLC Geophysic.

    The Omega Aqua Terra at 38.5 mm is a better looking watch. But if you want a Rolex, scratch the itch.

    I think the air king would be great if you can deal with 34mm.

    I know it's not even close but because I wanted the no bezel and 3,6,9 numbers I tried a VSA night vision 3. But if you're looking for $5k range then stick with the JLC Geophysic.

    A bit different suggestion than you probably had in your mind. Still classy and outdoorsy and yet totally distinct and different as not to be confused with a Rolex Explorer I: Archimede OutDoor Protect. Plus, 1,200 HV hardened ss steel;)
