The new-generation cheap fake Rolex Explorer released in a yellow Rolesor version (combining Oystersteel and 18 ct yellow gold) bears a lacquered black dial making the gilt framed hour indexes and emblematic 3, 6 and 9 numerals particularly outstanding.
The new Explorer Two Tone’s Chromalight display is particularly impressive against this inky black-drop (pun intended) as well. In dark conditions, the intensity of the blue glow emitted by the hour markers and hands shines perceptibly brighter and it also lasts longer thanks to the innovative and exclusive luminescent material. The brand began equipping numerous Himalayan expeditions with Oyster watches since the 1930s, the most famous being the pair of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay when they became the first to reach the 8,848 metres summit of Mount Everest.
On the yellow Rolesor version of the new high-end Rolex Explorer copies, the bezel, winding crown and centre links of the bracelet are in 18 ct yellow gold, while the case and outer links of the bracelet are in Oystersteel. An exemplar of robustness and reliability paired with luxurious new precious materials, the new Explorer Two Tones’s 36 mm Oyster case is guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100 metres. Its middle case is crafted from a solid block of Oystersteel, a particularly corrosion-resistant alloy. The case back, edged with fine fluting, is hermetically screwed down with a special tool that allows only Rolex watchmakers to access the movement. The Twinlock winding crown, fitted with a double waterproofness system, screws down securely against the case.
One would be remiss to not point out that the Rolesor model of the new luxury fake Rolex Explorer stands apart from its steel brethren which sport an all-brushed finishing: the Two Tone Explorer is shinier with polished yellow-gold centre links on the bracelet and extremely dressy with gold accents on the case and bracelet, as well as yellow gold hands and hour markers. These seemingly “superficial” changes are matched by newly upgraded internal mechanics.
The new 36mm copy Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer Two Tone is equipped with calibre 3230. Released in 2020, it is representative of the pinnacle of Rolex’s watchmaking technology: a self-winding mechanical movement with several patents under its belt, offering outstanding performance in terms of precision, power reserve, resistance to shocks and magnetic fields, convenience and reliability. Among the new developments of particular note, the nickel-phosphorus Chronergy escapement patented by Rolex, which combines high energy efficiency with great dependability and insensitivity to magnetic fields.
The new calibre 3230 is also equipped with a blue Parachrom hairspring, manufactured by replica Rolex in a paramagnetic alloy that makes it up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks; furthermore, the oscillator is fitted on the patented high-performance Paraflex shock absorbers, increasing the movement’s shock resistance. Thanks to its barrel architecture and the escapement’s superior efficiency, new Rolex Explorer Two Tone enjoys a power reserve of 70 hours.
