Watches & Wonders 2021, which took place on the digital platform due to the Covid19 epidemic, opens its virtual doors to watch enthusiasts as of today.

The first name that comes to mind among these brands is undoubtedly Rolex.
The cult name of luxury watchmaking maintains its place among the main players of the organization with the novelties presented every year. Rolex models, which sometimes make a big impression with a simple font change or a size difference of 1 mm, seem to be mentioned with waiting lists this year as well.
Available in 36mm diameter stainless steel and Two-Tone (stainless steel-18k yellow gold) case options, the new Explorer 1 model offers 100 meters water resistance with a sapphire crystal. At the heart of the watch is the new generation automatic Caliber 3230 with a 70-hour power reserve. Both versions come with a black dial.
The models with a 42mm diameter stainless steel case have two different dial color alternatives, black and white, just like the old version.
