The Impeccability Of A Champion â€“ Rolex Explorer And Michael Phelps
Few men on earth are blessed with the urge of achieving the impossible. Those who succeed in reaching the greatest heights of success are always considered as priceless gems in the human society. Most of them have the in-built capacity to bring down the tallest impediment in their way of success. The Rolex Explorer comes as the symbol of success and the human urge to achieve the impossible. This unique Rolex timepiece stands as the representative of the mettle that a human being on this planet possesses or has the ability to possess. The Rolex Explorer was brought in the international market as an honor to the first ascent to the Mount Everest.
The unique feat of climbing the Mount Everest was first achieved by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay in 1953. The Rolex Explorer has been specially designed as an invaluable tool in professional expeditions. This is because the design of Rolex Explorer meets all the demands of professional mountaineers and people who are frequent in professional expeditions all throughout the year. The dial of the Rolex Explorer has four important words imprinted on it â€“ SUPERLATIVE CHRONOMETER OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED. This means that the watch has been through the toughest test while under the manufacturing process. This test involves the ability to endure 15 rigorous days and nights.
The test is carried out by the COSC or Controle Official Suisse des Chronometres. The COSC is a non-profit association who is responsible for carrying out such tests of mettle. Receiving a COSC certification requires a watch to show its impeccable precision in various temperatures and positions. This is generally the highest bar of performance for any other Rolex timepiece. A special feature of the watch includes the Chromalight display. The Chromalight display of the Rolex Explorer works even in the darkest environments. The blue glow in the watch keeps the watch lighted for as long as 8 hours. Normally, all other watches using luminescent elements provide light for not even half of what the Chromalight display in a Rolex Explorer provides.
904L steel, used for resisting maximum corrosion in the chemical industry, is used by Rolex for making its steel cases. 904L is a super alloy which perfectly blends with the other crucial elements of the watch and makes it extremely resistant from all kinds of corrosion. The black colored dial of the Rolex Explorer II creates the effect of a â€˜phantomâ€™. The grandeur and the impeccable resistance of a Rolex Explorer canâ€™t be better defined by Michael Phelpsâ€™s milestones in the world of swimming. Michael Fred Phelps has won 16 Olympic gold medals. These include six gold medals and two bronze medals in the 2004 Athens Olympics and eight gold medals in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. For these extraordinary swimming performances in his career, Michael Phelps has been awarded with the â€˜World Swimmer of the Year Awardâ€™ for six times and with the â€˜American Swimmer of the Year Awardâ€™ for eight consecutive times. Till now he has won 66 medals in almost all the international competitions which include 54 gold medals, nine silver medals and three bronze medals. Michael Phelps has reached the greatest heights of success in the world of swimming and still possesses the ability to bring more of them.
