Exploring the Rolex Explorer and Rolex Explorer II

Rolex ExplorerI am a Rolex freak.  I own them, I sell them, I buy them and I want to know all there is about them.  I am constantly reading everything I can about the brand, the history and the watches.  I am joining forums, participating in discussions, and other than my aquarium, I haven’t been paying attention too much else.  Yes, my wife is not so happy at the moment!

One of the Rolex watches that I am not that familiar with is the Explorer and the Explorer II, so I thought we could ‘explore’ it together!  By the way, if any of you who are reading are familiar, please leave comments!  I would love for this to become an open forum for questions, answers and chitchat!
