The dial is the distinctive face of a Rolex watch, the feature most responsible for its identity and readability. The Explorer model’s characteristic 3, 6 and 9 numerals are filled with a luminescent material emitting a long-lasting blue glow, like the hour markers and hands. 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. A true Rolex signature, Rolesor has featured on Rolex models since the early 1930s, and was trademarked as a name in 1933. It is one of the prominent pillars of the Oyster collection.
