Wildman Explorer Explorer

The Rolex Explorer with a never seen before look.

The Wildman customised Explorer retains all the highly legible features of this classic such as the iconic 3,6,9 numerals now pronounced using a bold orange. A unique adaption of a classic whilst still retaining its original spirit.



In 1953, Sir Edmund Hilary became the first man to summit Everest and did so with a watch that would later become the Explorer on his wrist. Today, the model makes a perfect daily wearer and remains in perfect harmony with its ground breaking heritage.

The Finish

Our signature black DLC coating has been applied to the watches sleek 39mm case to give a robust yet elegant exterior finish.

The Dial

Transforming the 3,6,9 numerals with orange seemed an obvious choice with orange shades being used on Explorer references countless times over the years.

The Details

We’ve ensured every element of the watch has been modified to enhance this unique design. We love the look of a subtle orange tip on the sweep seconds hand.

DLC Coating

Our black DLC coating has been applied to the watch through a specialist process, enhancing the steel both aesthetically and structurally.

Our diamond like carbon coating, known as DLC is an ultra thin coating that adopts the surface finish it is applied onto allowing for high polished, satin and matte finishes to all be achieved. The coating not only enhances the steel aesthetically, but also structurally by bonding with the base material and increasing its hardness up to eight times. Giving a consistent and flawless deep black shade across all elements of the watch casing.
