The Explorer’s place in history is firmly entrenched.

The latest Explorer has been given an entirely luminescent display – where the hour and minute hands, the hour indices and the famous 3, 6, 9 numerals glow an incandescent blue in the dark. Called Chromalight, the feature offers increased legibility in any scenario. Around…

 |  September 22nd, 2016

Want to take your watch from nice to “wow” when it comes to sporty appeal? Try on a NATO strap and you may never go back. Essentially, a NATO strap is a military-style strap that can be slipped through the watch lugs, looped under the caseback and out the other lug to attachto the wrist as a single piece of fabric or leather instead of the traditional watch strap that has two sides and closes with a buckle.

And, of course, it is…
