The Rolex 114270 Explorer was the last incarnation of the 36mm Explorer I – it has the classic proportions of the first sports Rolex that was made in 1954 – a brief history of the Sports Watch is here if you fancy a read.
The Explorer makes a lovely understated gentleman’s sports Rolex but would also look great on a lady who likes a larger watch as it’s 2mm larger than the Rolex mid-size – well worth considering for either possibility, especially as it brings a more active feel and is more robust than its non-sports stable mates.
The case, dial, hands and bracelet of this watch show virtually no signs of wear and importantly, the case has the original finish to the front of the lugs – a beautiful watch that can’t have been worn much at all over the past 15 years – the watch comes with both boxes, the papers and their wallet, as well as the calendar, booklet, red seal and Swimpruf tag – this makes a collectible and highly desirable example.
This Rolex 114270 has just been tested by a Rolex authorised watchmaker and it is supplied with a 12 month warranty.
