  1. The 1950s were a decade of adventure. Mankind strived to conquer nature, to descend to the depths of the ocean's trenches and to climb to the peaks of the world's tallest mountains.

This model was designed to live up to the promise implicit in its name, by satisfying all the requirements of toms sko salg expeditions and other adventures. The Explorer underwent more improvements over the years and, beginning with the 1989 model, it was also designed to be more luxurious. Its indices and numerals have been made of gold since then, although there is still luminous material inlaid into the indices.
