For the Urban Explorer

Buying a watch as a present does not always show too much creativity, but this Rolex Explorer is something different. As an example from the late 1960s, the classic ‘action watch’ is for the man or woman who appreciates both the model’s understated styling and its performance in extreme conditions.

Justin Jay of the Watch Club in The Royal Arcade, Old Bond Street enthuses about the watch: “What really makes this vintage Explorer is its perfectly aged dial with the famous ‘exclamation mark’ running from 12 to six o’clock.”

With its countless small shops and boutiques, London is an ideal venue for Christmas shopping: but where can you find the really special and unusual gifts? Classic Driver is out and about in the Capital, and will be suggesting a new gift idea every day.
