I’ve always preferred rubber watch straps, like Hublot’s Big Bang series, various Omega seamaster, Blancpain scuba, etc. Considering the comfort and functionality of watch straps, I’m wondering if Rolex rubber straps would be fragile. It wasn’t until I tried the rubber strap on the replica Rolex Explorer II watches that I must say I was pleasantly surprised with the results, the strap is superbly made and tough .
After replacing the rubber strap, the watch seemed much more sporty, and the buckle matched its strap, a black strap that slowly shrank from 21mm wide to 16mm to be able to fit the buckle it wore, and I had to get used to the tapered shape of the strap.
The steel makes this watch more robust than previous models, and more in keeping with its own definition of adventure. The crystal is a sapphire crystal, which is even more durable. Personally, I love the blistered date window on its dial, and with the addition of the luminescent hands on the dial and the separate orange 12-hour hands, it’s just perfect for me!
I’ve been wearing this watch for about 3 days and it gives me the same feeling as always, my love for it hasn’t waned or any dissatisfaction, the flexibility of its rubber strap is also surprisingly close to the wrist, making the watch more comfortable to wear, it has the added benefit of being able to display unobstructed in the radar coverage area and not being disturbed by magnetic fields, based on the new features of this watch, I guess there’s still some time to get used to it slowly, and the process in between is exactly what I’m enjoying!
Today,replica Rolex watches steel watches are so good at preserving their value that even if you realize you’re not making the right choice, you can get out of it without losing a few hundred dollars. But the goal here is to help you determine if the Rolex Explorer I 214270 is right for you.
The Rolex Explorer I 214270 is essentially a hybrid of the Oyster Constant 39 and the Submariner “undated”, with case, bezel, dial, bracelet and movement. This cleverly leads us to my point that, in terms of price and features, many people think they will get the best of both worlds if used with the Explorer I.
It is essentially OP’s 39mm Oyster monocoque mid-shell, with a slightly curved profile compared to the flat trapezoidal profile of the 40mm Oystersteel Submariner. The Explorer I has different baffles: the OP has a dome-shaped, highly polished baffle, while the Explorer I has what Rolex calls a “smooth” baffle look; it’s just as well polished, but with a flat surface rather than the raised edge of the OP. There’s no Cerachrom anywhere on the Explorer I, which means you’re sure to get at least some swirls on the steel bezel, but you definitely don’t have to worry about breaking the Cerachrom stall insert. “The Explorer I is very water resistant to 100 meters, while the submarine is rated at 300 meters. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, it will indeed be a game of trade-offs.
The movement inside the Rolex Explorer I 214270 is the Rolex 3132, the same movement as the Oyster Perpetual 39. Between the Submariner “No Date” and the 3130, the only major difference I can find is that both the Explorer and the OP have “high performance Paraflex shocks”, while the Submariner with its professional dive watch pedigree, oddly enough, does not. You’ll see the Paraflex shock absorber for the Rolex Explorer in the picture below. Although they all have the highest chronometer-second accuracy (2/2 / + 2) and a 5-year international warranty like all Rolex watches produced today, the OP, Explorer I and Submariner all have a power reserve of 48 hours, far less than the new generation of Rolex 32xx calibres with a power reserve of over 70 hours. Learn more about this.
The dial of the Rolex Explorer I 214270 now features a blue Chromalight display – essentially a BGW9 luminous material that lasts longer than the more common Super-LumiNova C3, but is less bright when charged. I prefer Chromalight’s long-lasting blue tones to the temporary Super-LumiNova light show seen on Panerais and other products.
The previous Explorer I’s compact minute hand was updated at BaselWorld 2016 with the Rolex Explorer I 214270, which is not lifted from a 36mm carry tab, but is designed for a 39mm wide watch. By my estimation, I shouldn’t be using one of those small Explorer’s at all, and it shouldn’t last that long. Other than that, the quality of the dial remains very high. The 18ct Platinum Index and pointer are great for adding a touch of luxury. The hour and minute hands seem to have a slightly arched curve, which gives them a louder and higher appearance. The hour hand looks flat, but sanded evenly with dots, very cool. The icing on the cake is the laser-etched and difficult-to-photograph Rolex crown, which is present in every Rolex sapphire crystal at the 6 o’clock position. (It will be seen in the image above.) It was so small that light had to shine on the small etch in a certain way, to the point where the naked eye could barely see it by chance, but there it was.
Speaking of quality of execution, while I clearly think there’s a lot of work to be done in the crystal and dial department, Rolex has been the King of the Hill (in partnership with Seiko) split in terms of looks at four-figure prices. The overall feel, feel and look of the case and bracelet is stunning, even though they have eliminated the angled tilt of the polished lugs of the older generation of professional watches.
The look and feel of the buckle is also expensive. A large number of milled metal rotating parts have excellent mechanical resistance and close with the most reassuring click. The Explorer has an Oysterlock safety clasp, which has a second folding closure for additional security against accidental opening (the OP has a single closure). However, the Explorer I doesn’t have Submariner’s Glidelock adjustment system, which extends by up to 20mm in 2mm increments, and instead has the Easylink system, which comes with a half-link tab that you can extend or retract to snap the watch down.
In the era of mechanical watches in the 20th century, Rolex has always been a leader in the global watch industry, and its superior craftsmanship and technology still keep Rolex at the forefront of the watch industry with Patek Philippe, Blancpain, Breguet, Jaeger-LeCoultre and Piaget.
replica Rolex watches is a symbol of excellence and reliable performance. Rolex watches have always been the world’s leading brand in the field of watchmaking, with Swiss quality standards. Rolex watches are highly valued for their “stable, suitable and unobtrusive” design style, and their durability makes Rolex an exceptional value.
Rolex watch type
The classic, sedate Rolex Logbook was born in 1945 and was the first watch to have a date display on its face. A few years later, the watch’s crystal face was fitted with a small, convex lens (Cyclops eye), which has since become a symbol of Rolex for a generation.
The Oyster watch became a symbol of accurate and reliable quality. To mark this momentous occasion, Rolex launched this commemorative watch in 1953: the Rolex Explorer. The watch is equipped with a sturdy all-steel strap and a new double-clasp winding crown with a double waterproofing system. The Explorer is the first Rolex watch specifically designed for professional use. In this way, the explorer type has established its unprecedented symbolic status.
Born in 1953, the Rolex Submariner, popularly known as the Water Ghost, was the world’s first watch to be water-resistant to 300 metres, and the Oyster Constant-Speed Submariner is a model of rugged durability. Whether underwater or at a dinner party, the Submariner model is a rugged, reliable and comfortable sports timepiece.
Oyster type constant motion deep sea type
The success of the Rolex Oyster DEEPSEA is due to a number of groundbreaking technological innovations, including the new Rolex case construction, the Ringlock System, which ensures that the watch can withstand the intense pressure in deep water. Designed especially for the very demanding professional diver.
While the Rolex Greenwich is specifically designed for professional use, its unparalleled functionality and design make it popular with travelers as well. In addition to the different time zones, Greenwich’s sturdy material and easy-to-match exterior make it ideal for traveling around the world and attending any occasion.
The Rolex Dittona is a professional racing watch that can be described as “the watch of legends”. The short-distance chronograph movement of the watch is accurate to 1/8th of a second and the tachymeter scale on the outer ring reads the speed data immediately after a certain distance travelled, making it a must-have for drivers. It is a popular choice for those who seek speed and elegance.
It’s a series specifically designed for yachting events (Rolex is obsessed with sporting events and extreme sports) and is similar in function to the Submariner series, but with more female users, it’s sized to accommodate female wearers.
The only collection that doesn’t use the traditional Oyster case design, if you want to buy an understated and simple model that’s sturdy and stable at the same time. Cellini would be a very good choice.
Rolex’s overall strategy is more conservative, as evidenced by the fact that the majority of its models are designed with an oyster case and are relatively simple and functional. Each generation of watches is an upgrade and improvement in detail. The advantage of doing so is that Rolex watches are strong enough to last, and are relatively stable in price on the secondary market, so Rolex watches are very well preserved.
I sympathize with those who chose replica Rolex Explorer I 214270 watches. In addition to those who “understand”, just because they fell (because understandably) because of their handsome appearance, there are some super-thought Explorer I customers who have also made a fair decision. Before buying the first (or next) Rolex, some research is needed. They studied Submariner and Submariner Date and Oyster Perpetual, both of which are on the side of Explorer I in terms of price and function. I can connect with those who end in Explorer I 214270, but, nevertheless, I am still not sure if this is the watch I want to buy when I buy an affordable Rolex today.
The process of getting lost in hundreds of forum pages and watching comments is very easy, and there are countless minutes of videos dedicated to the hard work of making the “best for you” decision when choosing Rolex. You will find Cyclops fans, the biggest desk haters, Cerachrom ceramic bezel opponents and believers, OP (for our mortals, Oyster Perpetual) value proposition missionaries, fact sheet comparators, and the list is endless. When I look for the best Rolex watch to earn hard-earned money, I can use a psychological struggle to fill the entire article, or even the entire book.
Thankfully, these days, Rolex stainless steel watches have excellent value retention, so even if you realize that your choice is not suitable, you may be able to get rid of the predicament hundreds of dollars without losing more than one dollar. However, the purpose of this is to help you determine whether Rolex Explorer I 214270 is right for you. Rolex Explorer I 214270 is essentially a “dateless” hybrid of Oyster Perpetual 39 and Submariner, including the case, bezel, dial, bracelet and movement. This cleverly leads us to my point of view, in terms of price and functionality, many people think that if used with Explorer I, they will get the best of both worlds. Although there are many subtle differences between these three collections, their priorities and methods are not the same, but here is a quick introduction to the Explorer method that I am suitable to use. It basically has OP’s 39mm Oystersteel overall mid-shell, and its profile is slightly curved than the flat trapezoidal profile of the 40mm Oystersteel Submariner. Explorer I has different baffles: OP has a domed, high-polished baffle, while Explorer I has what Rolex calls a “smooth” baffle. Its polishing effect is equally good, but it has a flat surface instead of the raised bezel of the OP. There is no Cerachrom anywhere in Explorer I, which means you will definitely have at least some vortices on the steel bezel, but you absolutely do n’t have to worry about breaking the Cerachrom ring insert. “Explorer” I has a very good water resistance, reaching 100 meters, while “Submarine” has a rated water depth of 300 meters. As I am sure you have noticed, this will indeed be a trade-off game.
The movement in Rolex Explorer I 214270 is the Rolex 3132 movement, which is the same as the Oyster Perpetual 39 movement. The only major difference between me and Submariner’s “No Date” 3130 is that Explorer and OP both have “High-Performance Paraflex Shock Absorbers”, and strangely, Submariner with a professional diving watch pedigree does not. You will see the Paraflex shock absorber of Rolex Explorer on the picture below. Although they all have the highest chronometer seconds accuracy (2/2 + 2) and a 5-year international warranty like all Rolex watches produced today, OP, Explorer I and Submariner all have a 48-hour power reserve, far less than Rolex (Rolex) new generation movement 32xx has a power reserve of more than 70 hours. Learn more about this. The dial of Rolex Explorer I 214270 now has a blue Chromalight display-essentially a BGW9 luminescent material, which has a longer lifespan than the more common Super-LumiNova C3, but is not bright after being charged. Compared with the Super-LumiNova temporary lighting on Panerais and other installations, I prefer Chromalight’s long-lasting blue tone.
A few words have lost all meaning when discussing Rolex watches. At this point, “underestimated”, “sleeping” and “underestimated” may not be completely meaningless, but we are quickly reaching that goal. Social media and frankly, articles like this haven’t helped any enthusiast hunters there, but you’ll be surprised how many people I’ve met who know nothing about Explorer II. In this article, I will introduce the Explorer II reference. 16570 is a 40mm version produced for 22 years from 1989 to 2011. ExplorerII 16570’s low-key design, dual time zone function, nearly indestructible appearance and tenacious not luxurious attitude may be the best choice for modern Rolex sports watches out there replica rolex watches .
Of course, I am a little biased towards Explorer II. I’ve always been my favorite Rolex sports watch. In fact, the first Rolex I bought was a 216570 black dial (for this I made a positive comparison with Submariner here). Submariner, GMT-Master II and Daytona have attracted much attention, while Explorer II has been Rolex ’s low-key utility watch and has been a true travel watch for decades. Explorer II is the scum of the Rolex sports watch family and is the Prince Prince of GMT-Master II (this is interesting because I think Harry is wearing the Polar Dial Explorer II) Replica Rolex uk .
Introduced as a cave explorer’s watch, the Explorer II design has more functionality than form. The darkness in these caves makes it impossible to distinguish between day and night, which is why the 24-hour hands and fixed bezel. And the original Explorer II reference. 1655 does not mean to be a travel watch at all, but 16570 introduced a separate hour hand, which functionally makes the watch a dual time zone travel watch.
Fully refurbished Rolex Explorer II Ref. 16550 was produced between 1985 and 1989 and is considered the “transition” model between the original 1655 and 16570 seen in this article. Compared to 16570, they are harder to find and more expensive. For better or worse, the 16550 brings Explorer II to the Rolex sports watch line. The sapphire crystal, the new Mercedes hands, the hour markers and the 24-hour hand are reminiscent of the then GMT Master. It is also equipped with Calibre 3085, which adds the aforementioned independent hour hand function.
The 16550 also features a black or white (aka Polar) dial, introducing two dial options that are still available today. The Polar dial model has a paint defect that causes the dial to slowly turn milky white, making it popular with collectors. In fact, these products usually cost more than the old Ref. The price is high. Also known as “Steve McQueen” in 1655. I was shocked when I saw the cream dial 16550 selling for more than 1655, but this is not uncommon.
Fast forward to 1989 and Rolex released the Explorer II Ref. 16570 had been running for almost 22 years before 216570 was released in 2011. The 16570 iterates on the 16550, adopts the new 3185 movement, and makes minor but substantial changes to the extreme dial model. By replacing the silver-contoured hands and graduations with black, and by really accentuating the white dial, readability is greatly improved. Again, the font used on the border numbers changed between 16550 and 16570, which is just a problem.
Explorer II 16570 is water resistant to 100M, 40 mm wide, 12.2 mm thick, and 47 mm ear-to-ear, making it an ideal size for smaller or larger wrists. Wearing it on a 7.5-inch wrist, my complaint was zero and I found the size to be just right. I personally do tend to be a bit bigger, so I prefer my 216570, which is 42mm wide, 12.5mm thick and 50.1mm lugs. An advantage of Explorer II compared to Submariner or GMT-Master is that the 24-hour bezel tilts downwards, making the case look slimmer.
The 16570 movement is equipped with the 3185 movement (the model after 2006 slightly updated the 3186 movement), which was introduced in 1988 for the Explorer II and GMT-Master II. This is the first time that Rolex has adopted an independent hour hand movement, and it also has a seconds function. The 3185 has 31 jewels, runs at 28,800 vph, and has a power reserve of 50 hours. Of course, considering how many Explorer II watches containing this movement were produced in 22 years, the need for maintenance depends on the specific situation.
Although they are actually the same watch, for years, Explorer II 16570 watches have various serial numbers, with slight differences between these serial numbers. The polar dial model you see in this article is the Y serial number, while the black dial is the F serial number.
