Scratch resistant sapphire crystal. Solid case back. Case diameter: 39 mm. Deployment clasp. Water resistant at 100 meters/ 330 feeet. Functions: hours, minutes, seconds. Rolex Explorer Black Dial Domed Bezel Oyster Bracelet Mens Watch 214270BKASO.

This is probably the only Rolex I would purchase, no bling, just class. The 39mm case is just right for my 7-1/2" wrist, and the new bracelet they have on this model is a 200% improvement of previous Rolex models, where the bracelet was the missing link (no pun intended) in quality.

This is definitely a "Lifetime" watch, and well worth the investment. The original version of this model was worn by Sir Edmound Hillary when he climbed Mt. Everest. This was Ian Fleming's watch, the watch James Bond wore in his books. The only reason Sean Connery was wearing a Submariner was the prop man forgot to get the proper watch and one of the directors loaned him his Submariner to wear while filming instead.

The only caveat about this watch is the Amazon price. For a couple of hundred more you could buy one at an AD, maybe even cheaper, and from the AD you get the Rolex warranty.
