The good folks over at Hodinkee are celebrating their second birthday but don’t think it’s all fun and no work right now. They’re still delivering some great news atop a handful of giveaways. They recently turned us to this custom timepiece from Project X Designs based on the Rolex Explorer II. Since Rolex themselves have yet to unveil an Orange Hand Explorer, these guys took it upon themselves to deliver. “The Explorer II has been coated in DLC to give in the “blackout” look. Then, Project X has filled the 24-hour scale on the bezel with bright orange paint. Finally, and clearly most importantly, the red GMT hand has been replaced with an orange one.”
Project X will have a limited run of only 24 pieces available but no word on pricing yet.
