Expedition El Capitan
We named this model after the iconic monolith that sits in the north side of Yosemite Valley. Standing at 3000 feet, El Capitan has earned a reputation of being one of the most challenging climbs for rock climbers ever since Warren Harding and his companions first attempted to scale it in 1958. It was recently brought again to the attention of the world when professional climber Alex Honnold attempted a free solo climb, one that took him a full year of preparation. Climbing El Cap demands unrelenting patience, mastery, and sheer will - all of which are ideals that embody the BOLDR spirit.

Watch is comfortable, cleanly designed, and keeps time accurately. Only negative is that the watch band is too small, and very stiff. I did have to replace the band. Otherwise, no complaints.
Ordered a Boldr Expedition Matterhorn for Christmas, received it in 5 days! Unfortunately, the contrast between the numerals and face made the watch really hard to read, so I emailed Boldr and asked to exchange it for the El Capitan. They responded promptly, and I received the El Capitan soon after. I've had the El Cap about a week or so now, and I love it! Great design and solid construction, looks really nice, and excellent movement, which has kept great time so far. Very impressive lume, which makes the watch perfectly readable in dark settings. My only dislike was the canvas band it came with, which I immediately replaced with a navy silicone dive band. Overall, excellent customer service and a fantastic watch!
Watch band is a little short. Everything else is great!
When 4:20 rolls around, El Capitan imparts gentle cerebral invigoration that tends to bloom in illuminated hues with a fiery orange second hand and a shining sphere of sapphire crystal. Novice consumers may want to approach this powerhouse with caution, but those armed with a high tolerance will delight in El Capitan's heavy-handed euphoria. Physical relaxation comes on strong, but many find themselves still mentally agile enough to stay productive and creative when enjoying El Capitan during the day. Stress, tension, and sour moods melt away with the carefree mindset that comes with this rich hybrid field and dive watch. If thinks get too heady, a first pressing of the Grateful Dead's "Europe '72" pairs quite well with this green marvel.
