The Rolex 114270 for sale here today is a modern edition of the classic Explorer, which has, since its debut, remained faithful to a simpler, more refined design. The focus of the Explorer is to offer a reliable reading in even the harshest environments. Without the bells and whistles that often accompany a watch with more complications, such as timing bezel or additional hands on the dial, the Explorer can take on a minimalist form while offering a price tag that will appeal to any collector. The ref. 114270 is a newer edition of the line that includes fully-lumed Arabic and baton hour markers and Mercedes hands, Oystersteel, and a chronometer-rated calibre 3130 movement. The famous mountaineer’s watch is also waterproof up to 100 meters and utilizes a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal for a lifetime of reliable readings.
