The Explorer I is a great watch. Sober, basic, is the most essential piece of the Rolex sports collection. Large in size, with visible in every condition large mercedes style hands and “3-6-9” hour markers, this watch can dive as deep as 330 ft. It makes a very robust timepiece for everyday use in every condition, and a good collectible at the same time: the 14270 was the first Explorer I ever to sport a sapphire crystal, and it has been one of the hardest to find new Rolex watches since the day it was released for a few years, until the Japanese market finally quenched its thirst for this cool Rolex watch.

Movement – Self winding, Rolex calibre 3000
Dial – Glossy black, “white surround” “3-6-9” hour markers
