Football Fever

September 5th, 2012 | 7 Comments

We know that everyone is excited that football is starting up again this week (today, to be accurate). Believe me, we are too! We have highlighted our Explorer model before, and we know that you all love it. But did you know that Jarrett Bush of the Packers and Aldon Smith of the 49ers love it too? Talk about a great matchup right (and I’m not just talking about the Green Bay vs. Niners game this Sunday, which we are HYPED about)?

So why do you think the love the Explorer so much?


Could it be the hackable movement? A hacking feature is a wonderful tool to help increase a watch’s accuracy. And as we all know, timing is everything, especially when Bush is running with special teams or when Smith is blitzing through the offensive line (he’s a beast, by the way). The seconds hand will actually stop, giving you accuracy down to the second.

Could it be the sapphire crystal? Sapphire crystal is a very, very scratch and wear resistant crystal. They say that sapphire crystals keep your watch looking brand new, and it keeps it free of nicks and dings.

How about the exhibition case back or the size of the case? The Explorer has a comfortable weight and heftiness.  The stainless steel finish gives it a humble gleam and shine. It measures in at around 47mm with the crown and although this may sound rather large, it fits great on the wrist – not emphatically large, but not tiny either. The exhibition case back on the Explorer shows off a wonderfully dressed movement. So much detail goes into making this look so, so good.

How do you feel about the Explorer? Post a comment below!

    I really love the explorer’s ascetics. It has countless features and automatic movement all packed into a tasteful case. If I won this watch, it would have just as much wrist time as my Orient Expedition GMT.

    I love the logo being visible in full color through the case back. It’s that extra touch that makes it special.

    Awsome timepiece (packers are great too:)! Kudos guys for 2 new improvements on your newer lines: hackability. And less noticeable by most is dressing up the rotor and visible parts of the exhibition casebacks!!!! Now to really shut up those Swiss boys make em hand wind and orient would be No #1 in my book. Cheers
