Rolex Explorer 114270 Full Set


The Last of the 36mm Explorers

Since the early 1950s, the Rolex Explorer has been a constant member of the sports watch family. In the 1990s Rolex introduced the sapphire glass Explorer with applied 3-6-9 numerals, where before they had always been painted. This example is of the last of the 36mm steel Explorers and has a sapphire glass, non-drilled lugs and features the last version of the dials, which were marked ‘SWISS MADE’ at 6 o’clock. The watch remains in outstanding condition with a mint condition Oyster bracelet (reference 78690).
