More About The Rolex Explorer Ref 114270

The History

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 is highly reliable, functional, and durable, as well as 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.
