The Watch
The Rolex Explorer was launched in 1953, based around another iconic Rolex model, the ‘Bubbleback’.
 The tough and robust reputation of these watches made them the perfect ‘tool’ to use when Rolex began developing the Explorer. Prototypes began field testing by mountaineers in 1952, where the watch would accompany the wearer to the limits of their own capabilities. Sherpa Tenzing Norgay wore one of these prototype’s when making the first successful ascent of Mount Everest on the 29th May 1953 proof, if needed, that this new addition to the Rolex family fulfilled its brief as a true explorer’s watch.
Fast forward to 2001, Rolex released the ref. 114270, replacing the ref. 14270. Pairing the lines traditional adventurous charm with modern reliability thanks to its upgraded caliber 3130 and solid end-links, it's safe to say the ref. 114270 has all the makings of a modern classic.
Beating away inside the 36mm Oyster Case is the impressive 3130 automatic movement.
The Ref.114270 is an heir to some of the richest history of the watch world, it’s the kind of watch you can wear, trust, rough up and always know that one day, your son or daughter will do the same.
The Watch is accompanied by its Original Inner and Outer Boxes, Booklets and Wallet, the Cards are no longer present.
