About This Watch:
The Rolex Explorer was created as a true utility watch, and the Explorer Ref 114270 is no exception. One that was designed to withstand and endure the most brutal of environments and tasks while still maintaining its durability, as well as its elegant styling. Designed in honor of the exploits of those earliest explorers who dared to climb Mt. Everest and worn by Sir Edmund Hillary himself, the Rolex Explorer is an icon in the watch world.
Rolex brands need no introduction. Founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law, Alfred Davis, these visionary men set out to do what had not been successfully and reliably done before. Build a timepiece to be worn on the wrist that was both highly reliable, functional, durable, and stylish. Wilsdorf’s dream was to create a watch that could accompany its owner through all facets of life and withstand any environment. His innovative approach and high standards for quality reshaped the watch industry as a whole. It has made the Rolex name synonymous with quality, innovation, and elegance. The Watch:
