The Brand New Rolex Explorer Watch For 2010 = Dip, Dip, Dive x Socialize Like A Socialite!

"Big news this year here at Basel from Rolex. Most people are impressed by the new Rolex Submariner watches in all steel, but Rolex has also updated its popular Explorer model. The classic adventure watch has been upped to 39mm wide in steel, and features a slightly new dial. The case now comes in a better steel, which is grade 904L steel (most chemical and corrosion resistant). The dial has been ever so slightly updated. Newer hour markers and larger hands are most apparent.

The Rolex in-house made calibre 3132 movement is rock-solid and is COSC Chronometer certified. The watch has a sapphire crystal of course and is water resistant to 100 meters. Character of the watch is similar to the Submariner - but it is thinner, opts for a polished bezel instead of a rotating diver's bezel, and has a different style dial. The bracelet is very similar between the two, but the Explorer does not have a glide-lock clasp. For many, the Explorer is a simple, and less expensive Rolex that feels like a fantastic fit on many wrists. Surely fans will be excited as it has been a long time since the Rolex Explorer watch has been updated."

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Where some esteemed brands fall prey to the ruinous life sucking force of the parasitic cybernetic organisms known as Trendoids, others enjoy an immunity to these bloodsuckers (NOTE: Emphasis on the "suckers" ... lol). Ralph Lauren will ALWAYS be in effect, "Construction" and/or "Beef And Broccoli" Timbs will ALWAYS be a step in the right direction and Rolex watches will ALWAYS be right on time. Some credibility is beyond reproach. Long heralded as a prized status symbol by the nouveau riche, the iconic Rolex watch bears the rare distinction of being popular with lottery winners as well as with true horological purists whom appreciate this legendary firms many ground-breaking innovations.

When amongst your "greatest hits" Y.O.U. can count the creation of the mythical Oyster Perpetual Datejust (NOTE: The 1st waterproof wristwatch to display the date and boast a Cyclops magnifying lens) there's really NOT too much that Y.O.U. need to change. So, @ Baselworld 2010 (An annual convention based in Basel, Switzerland that is the highlight of the prestige watch and high end jewelry enthusiast calendar), rather than feebly attempt to "wow" the audience with kitschy gimmicks, Rolex smartly chose to refine some of their classic models and showcase what enduring style is truly all about. While the Submariner was updated with beautiful ceramic bezels, my favorite rejuvenated Rollie is the new Rolex Explorer Watch For 2010.

Super-sized ever so slightly to 39mm, this grade 904L stainless steel gem sports newer, more striking luminescent Chromalight hour markers and meticulous in-house 3132 calibre movement. Be Clear: This watch is a starter AND a finisher. For serious collectors and newbies alike, the new Explorer timepiece is the way to go. *Cue Jay-Z "On To The Next One" Voice* "Yall should grow the fuck up ... come here, let me coach you" ... lol. Holla @ ya boy in BK!
