Always see lots of recs for the Explorer 1. It’s never caught my eye, however, I’ve never seen it in person. Anyone who wasn’t a fan of it and then came around to it in person? Just seems very plain.

I love it. If they remade it in a 36mm I’d be first in line. For now I wear a Tudor BB36 as a placeholder.

What do you love about it? Genuinely interested

Great watch imo. Why? The history, the simplicity, the versatility, the 3-6-9 markers, the Benz hand... I could go on. Don Draper wore one for crying out loud 😂
