Expedition I Rub' Al Khali

9 reviews

Known as the ‘Empty Quarter’, the Rubʿ al-Khali desert constitutes the largest portion of the Arabian Desert, covering around 250,000 square miles (650,000 square km). It is the largest area of continuous sand in the world, and it is also one of the driest regions in the world. BOLDR Ambassador Jukka Viljanen will be undertaking a daring expedition on foot across this unforgiving terrain in early 2023. Jukka will brave through scorching heat and varied topography of soft sands, sand dunes, salt flats, and sand sheets, with some areas reaching as high as 2,000 feet (610 meters) above sea level.

The Expedition I Rubʿ al-Khali is built to outlast such unforgiving terrains, and it will accompany Jukka on his desert adventure. Strap yours on, get back on trek, and tell your own story.

Great watch, poor lume

Shipping to Belgium took some time, but I was really happy to discover this really beautiful watch: great dial, smooth and precise bezel action, reliable movement, sits perfectly on the wrist (on the standard strap, expedition bracelet or any NATO for that matte)! However, the lume is a real disapointment: magnificient at first, but very quickly turning into an undistinguishable greeny blob! Impossible to read time at night just after a few hours of darkness... Still a very beautiful watch, but the lume, though impressive at first, is practically useless.
