Rolex Explorer I 214270 39mm

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.


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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
