START YOUR WATCHMAKING JOURNEY WITH THE GLOBAL EXPLORER

A historically inspired watch dedicated to three daring expeditions of the last century. Each dial of the Global Explorer collection is embossed with the date and coordinates of an important discovery or journey. The dial carries latitude and longitude lines, representing the unique role of watches for navigation even until the 20th century. Above the dial the set of mirror polished hands will indicate the passing of time, well protected in a stainless steel case with a mineral crystal and screw down crown. The secure screw-in case back offers protection from water and dirt, while the new FKM hybrid straps will attach the Explorer safely to your wrist.
