3 Watch Pop-Up Stores To Visit In Hong Kong
A Watch Born To Explore Exhibition
Rolex has long been involved in some of the greatest adventures of exploration over the past century.
For generations, pioneers have pushed the boundaries of what was previously thought impossible, and the luxury watch brand has always been right alongside them, producing timeless wristwatches that can withstand the toughest conditions on Planet Earth.
Illustrated panels and films that depict the extraordinary stories that go into the development of Rolex's most iconic models welcome visitors to A Watch Born to Explore. From the Explorer, which was launched in 1953 to celebrate the first successful ascent of Mount Everest, to its successor, the Explorer II, which, created in 1971, has since become the timekeeper of choice among thrill seekers.
