Expedition I Rub' Al Khali

13 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.

My Daily

Rugged design with great details and finish. The glass back with the topological map is a nice touch. Movement is strong, but smooth. Customs charges to get it to the UK were a bit of a shock, but love the watch.

Great Watch Better Service

My Rub Al Khali version of the Boldr Expedition is a great looking piece. I especially appreciate the way the bead blasted case coordinates perfectly with the optional bracelet. The highly legible dial possesses loads of visual interest with unique hands and color variations. The piece was initially slow to be shipped but Hy was open and honest about the issues and intervened to get me the piece in short order. Spectacular customer service supporting a fabulous watch.
