Price Breakdown: Rolex Explorer

Rolex Explorer - the quintessential steel sports watch⁠

Though the reference has changed over time, this watch is still firmly known as the “Explorer” amongst collectors. The watch was originally released to celebrate the journey to the peak of Mt. Everest with Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay on May 29, 1953. The current Rolex Explorer reference 214270 was launched in 2010 with the same essence as the original Explorers. However, it has an upgraded movement, a shorter handset, non-luminous markers for 3, 6, and 9, additional solid links to the bracelet, and has increased to a larger size (from 36mm to 39mm). ⁠
