Pre-Owned Rolex 36mm Explorer, Black Dial, Oyster Bracelet, Ref. 114270

The Rolex Explorer was first introduced in 1953, following Sir Edmund Hillary’s successful climb of Mount Everest. It was designed specifically for exploration and mountaineering, with features like a highly legible dial, robust construction, and resistance to extreme temperatures and pressure changes. Over the years, the Explorer has undergone several updates and refinements, but it remains a popular choice among adventurers and watch enthusiasts alike.

This Explorer 114270 is a classic timepiece known for its durability and functionality. Its 36mm stainless steel case and smooth bezel exude a sleek and understated elegance. The black dial features luminescent hands and hour markers, ensuring visibility in various lighting conditions. Powered by Rolex’s self-winding 3130 caliber movement, this watch offers reliable and precise timekeeping. The stainless steel Oyster bracelet adds to the watch’s robustness and versatility, making it suitable for both casual and formal occasions. While the watch comes with the original papers, the box is not included.

Description

Rolex is recognized throughout the world not only as a brand associated with luxury, but as a watch that is both luxurious and precise.  For Rolex, this hard-won and well-deserved recognition was never in doubt.  The founder, Hans Wilsdorf named the company Rolex to be pronounceable in any language, as he anticipated the acclaim his company would receive due to relentless pursuit of precision and accuracy in a wristwatch.  Soon after its founding, Rolex produced the first wristwatch to receive the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, which was followed rapidly by receipt of a certificate of precision from the Kew Observatory in Great Britain.  From those roots Rolex built a legacy of innovation.  The Oyster watch was the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch in 1926, followed by the first self-winding Perpetual rotor.  Building once again on innovation, the Datejust became the first self-winding wrist chronometer to include a date in a window on the dial.  Adventurous women and men who strive to make history have chosen Rolex for their expedition, which both perpetuates the brand’s claim to precision and dependability as well as attests to its veracity.  Hans Wilsdorf may have anticipated the acclaim Rolex would someday achieve, but even he might have been impressed with its success.
