Explorer I -124270 Gen & Clean Comprehensive Comparison
Hello, I'm Steve, I'm back.
With the VSF factory also joined the Oyster Perpetual series of camp, CLean factory is finally unable to hold back, also began to expand their own product line,
recently released 36mm Oyster Perpetual, Explorer I and the Air King, although these series is not particularly popular, but for the players interested in this is definitely a good news.
After all, with the addition of the top factories, there will be more competition between the factories in these collections, and with competition comes better pieces,
more choices for these collections, and more choices for everyone. If we stayed the same, we would have no choice in many models.
All right, let's end this irrelevant nonsense and get on with the job.
Front Dial View
The chamfers on the edges of sticks are very rounded, and the corner details of Arabic numerals are also not in any way problematic. Clean factory really does have a great attention to detail.
Oil font view
The regularity and three-dimensionality are perfect. When we compare the font at 12 o'clock, it is easy to see that Clean's oil-printed fonts are really full, especially the "ROLEX" font.
Luminous Filled View
The Rehaut engraving has always been clean's strong point, and the underlining is very clear, with the slight disadvantage of the crown form, Mouth is a bit crooked, which should only be an isolated engraving problem.
Crown side view
When in winding position after the crown has been unscrewed (Fig. 2), The shank shaft has the same length and threads as Gen. The sharp corners of the teeth are very rounded and more pronounced than even the Gen.
Case side view
There is a certain amount of sink, both inside and outside, especially on the inside, where the height difference and curvature are exactly the same as on the Gen. The sinking of the outer tips is noticeable and a bit greater than the Gen .
Note: All measurements are taken in a snap-tight condition and may be subject to error due to slight deviations in the caliper position, also the protective film on the clean is not removed.
The dimensions and thickness are basically the same as the Gen, and if you remove the protective film, the weight is almost identical.
Width of the first strap section （Clean）
Prior to this, other factories were using wrong cases, so the lugs were a bit wider than Gen's, including the wider strap. Instead of following the example of other factories to save time and effort,
Clean has adopted 1 to 1 case and bracelet. The width of the first section of the bracelet is measured to be 18.6mm, and with a slight gap, the lug spacing is almost 19mm, which is the same as that of the Gen.
