Like all Rolex timepieces, the Explorer 36's dial is designed and manufactured in-house, largely by hand to ensure perfection.
The Oyster Perpetual Explorer 36 imparts a fresh elan to the sober, clean lines that have long established it as an icon. The smooth bezel in yellow gold is robust yet elegant, and in perfect harmony with the Explorer’s iconic heritage.
Gold is coveted for its lustre and nobility. Steel reinforces strength and reliability. Together, they harmoniously combine the best of their properties.
