Brief History: The Rolex Explorer I

The Rolex Explorer I is arguably one of the most beautiful designs ever made by the crown in all its versions, and there are many. The Explorer’s official story become widely popular due to an iconic marking point, when Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay’s ascent to Mount Everest in 1953 for the first time in history.

The line suffered slight but distinguishable variations over the years and the one we are featuring here is the ref. 114270 introduced in the early 2000s,  Like its predecessors, this particular variant features a 36mm stainless steel Oyster case with a water resistance of 330 feet. 

When it was introduced, Trituim had been long gone and this ref. 114270 features  Super-luminova coating on the hour markers, the center Mercedes-style hands and inverted triangle located at 12 o’clock.

Inside this fantastic version you find the COSC-certified Caliber 3130 running an automatic movement with 48 hours of power reserve.
