commented on Beyond Edmund Hillary: What if Rolex created the Explorer after other explorers' achievements? ·

Exactly. There is absolutely no evidence that either Hillary nor Norgay wore a Rolex, even the touted Oyster, to the summit. The entire Explorer thing is not only marketing, it has always been explicit “stolen valor” (or whatever you’d call it for non-military) marketing.

The Rolex company did try to rush deliver a whole set of Oysters to the expedition when they heard of the summit attempt, but there is no evidence that the delivery even made it on time, let alone actually be accepted and worn.

The fact that it might not even have been physically possible for the expedition to have worn the Rolexes, combined with actual public evidence of the Smith that the expedition and Hillary’s personal accounts / possessions later donated to museums, make the entire “commemorative model” even more ridiculous.
