  • Description

    These now iconic black dial Giant Bubble Backs were only badged with the Explorer name after the successful Everest expedition by Hilary and Tenzing. In fact the very first versions to boast the Explorer name, such as this, appeared within only three months of the successful expedition. Never one to pass up an opportunity for good advertising was our Mr Wilsdorf, the founder of the Rolex watch company. In fact, the very 1st versions were actually converted standard 6150's. To date, there are approximately 10 known examples of these earliest of Explorers.

  • Why buy from us

    1st & foremost, we understand & take responsibility for the fact that both tastes & horological fashions are ever changing.

    We do this by being willing to take back past pieces we've sold either in the form of part exchanges or cash when needed.

    With clients rarely loosing more than 15-20% in this process & even benefitting from large profits on occasion, we believe this is the way to build trust with the public. For example. If going 'off piste' & not sticking to in vogue trendy watches such as Batman's, we believe you would incur the same monetary loss spending £20,000 with us on your various purchases as you would spending £8500 at new RRP.

    The very fact that we've never advertised in over 30 years shows we have a long standing loyal customer base. Please see testimonials for more on this.
