When I first got my Rolex—my first and still my only Rolex—a serious watch collector asked me: “Why’d you get that model? Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great watch. But most Rollie virgins go for a Submariner or a GMT. I’m curious why you chose the Explorer I?” My answer: Because in my opinion, the Explorer I is the perfect allrounder, which also makes it the ideal travel watch.
The experienced traveller packs as lightly as possible, often able to whittle their needs back to what will fit in an onboard bag. I think your aim should be the same when it comes to your watch—you should try to travel with just one timepiece that will work with a variety of looks, in a variety of settings.
