You have wonderful taste and can't go wrong with either....
I can't imagine not owning an explorer; whether I owned 1 or 100 watches.
However, I believe that specific Oyster Perpetual is what one should buy as one-and-done for 20 years before buying a second Rolex. (and then only need the second as backup to that OP)
Let us know how it goes, great stuff man!
Two-tone takes the Explorer more into dress watch territory which doesn't fit the Explorer as a model/series. To me the Explorer = tool watch/field watch/Everest watch. Leave the two-tone for the Datejust with roman numerals.
