The Watch

Here we have a 2019 Rolex Explorer 1 39mm 214270 now discontinued, with a 39mm case made of corrosion-resistant 904l OysterSteel and curves over your wrist with tapered lugs, a lug-to-lug length of 48mm and a case thickness of 12mm giving the watch an impressive wrist presence. The Rolex Explorer came about after 20 years of development in extreme environments, starting back in the 1930s, the goal of the watch was to create the perfect mountaineer’s tool, keeping the perfect time at -50°C (-58°F) with 70% less oxygen than at sea level. Rolex announced at BaselWorld in 2016, a new Ref. 214270 which was again updated from the 36mm with lume-filled 3, 6, and 9 indexes, the handset is also slightly longer and thicker than the 36mm, making it a much better-proportioned dial. On the right side is a triple-sealed Triplock screw-down crown, polished and brushed surfaces transition with crisp edges and a highly polished smooth bezel with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. A glossy black dial with an outer minute track, applied 3, 6, and 9 18ct white gold numerals filled with Chromalight lume alongside Baton indexes to mark the hours, elegant 18ct white gold Mercedes hands, with a sweeping second hand, filled with Chromalight lume. On the reverse, a coin-edged screw-down case back, inside we have the Rolex Caliber 3132 considered a very accurate automatic movement with Chronometer Certification of -2/+2 seconds a day, 31 jewels beating at 28,800 beats per hour, the use of a Parachrom hairspring for its speed, it’s 10 times more accurate, resistant to shocks, resistant to extreme temperatures, and unaffected by magnetic fields and gravity. The 20mm 904L OysterSteel bracelet is finished with subtle radial brushing to the upper segments while the outer links have been highly polished matching the bezel, it has the Oysterlock safety clasp with Easylink micro-adjustments up to 5mm extension and also comes with its Rolex presentation box and papers.

Personal Note

It shouldn't be too much of a surprise that I think this is arguably one of the nicest and simplest Rolex's on the market, with fantastic history and heritage and just an overall perfect watch for every day at 39mm! I am keen to check out the new 40mm and see how it compares, but for now, you cannot go wrong with this reference.

The Brand

In 1905, German-born Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law Alfred Davis set up a company in London that imported Swiss movements which are installed in British cases and sold to jewellers who put their names on the dials. Recognising the potential for their brand, Wilsdorf created the brand name Rolex in 1908. In 1910, a Rolex became the first wristwatch to carry the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, awarded by the Official Watch Rating Centre in Bienne, Switzerland. Demand for Rolex watches rose swiftly, and British taxes on the Swiss movements Rolex used prompted Wilsdorf to move the business to Geneva, Switzerland, in 1919. With production costs lowered, Wilsdorf quickly set out to solve the age-old problem of moisture and dust entering a watch case and damaging the movement. The Rolex watchmakers came up with a fully sealed watch case, which Wilsdorf named the Oyster, and released to an appreciative audience in 1926. In 1931, Rolex introduced the first automatic winding wristwatch, giving it the legendary name Oyster Perpetual. In 1945, they released Datejust. The Datejust was the first watch to have the date jump instantaneously at midnight. The 1950s saw a whole lot of releases such as the Air-King (1958), the Explorer (1953), the Submariner (1953), the GMT Master (1955), the Day-Date (1956), the electromagnetic field resistant Milgauss (1956), the Lady-Datejust (1957) and the first Deep Sea model (1960). Wilsdorf’s death in 1960, saw ownership of Rolex S.A. (a collection of sub-companies) passed to the Hans Wilsdorf Foundation which was founded by Wilsdorf in 1945, the mission of which is simply to sustain Rolex S.A. indefinitely.
