The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Explorer was introduced to the market in 1953 after Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay successfully reached the summit of Mount Everest. Interestingly, the first Rolex Explorer model was based on Rolex References 6098 and 6150, which were part of the Bubbleback series. These watches were transformed into Rolex References 6298 and 6350 when Explorer-type 3-6-9 dials were added, however, they weren’t yet called “Explorer. The name “Explorer” was finally added to Rolex Reference 6350 watches in 1953.
