Pre-Owned Highlights: Top Online Fake Rolex And Omega Watches

Good day, everyone. Mike is in the saddle today and here with your pre-owned luxury replica watches. With me at the helm, there’s a strong chance of vintage in the forecast and likely occurrence of gold drizzle. Shall we begin?

Pre-Owned Highlights: Replica Rolex Datejust 1600 “Ghost Dial” Watches

Our first pre-owned pick comes to us courtesy of Chrono24 and the Los Angeles-based sellers Oliver & Clarke. What we have here is a Rolex Datejust 1600. If you were guessing that 36mm 1:1 Swiss fake Rolex Datejust watches would find its way into this article because of my recent obsession, you scored! However, this isn’t just any old Datejust. This is a smooth-bezel model in steel and gold. More than that, though, it contains a gray dial. Combinations like this aren’t common, and that’s what grabbed my attention.

This Rolex 1600 copy watches wholesale sports a lovely dial with all of its necessary lume pips. The seller maintains that the case is sharp and that the Jubilee (a folded Jubilee is one of man’s greatest inventions, trust me) is relatively tight for its age. I’d ask for some additional pictures of the case markings to see the model number and reference. Check the movement, inside of the case back, and those lug holes. Finally, ensure that the bracelet stretch is within your limits. If everything passes muster, fork over just shy of €5,400, clean that bracelet, and rock the living h*ll out of this stunner. Move fast, though, or you might have to duke it out with me!

Fake Omega Seamaster Professional 300M Watches

The ‘90s is a bit of a wasteland for perfect US Omega replica watches. Plus, it was a weird time when watch companies were making small watches and still seemed to be treading carefully around mechanical movements. As such, Omega wasn’t doing much on its own while relying on ETA for its automatics. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with these movements, but the high quality super clone watches somehow lack the prestige of current Omegas in the eyes of most. Still, the Seamaster lineup during this period consisted of some really nice-looking watches. Plus, they’re thin and seriously wearable.

As a person who came of age during this decade, I distinctly remember these Swiss made replica watches. Today’s two-tone Seamaster Professional 300m reference 236.22.0000 is a nice 41mm example on Catawiki. It has a lovely gold dive bezel and a white dial, and it even sports a solid steel bracelet (perhaps that was added later, as it should be two-tone). I don’t know where this will end, but for somewhere around €2,000 or less, this would be a sweet daily piece to rock with just about anything. Get an inexpensive service (it is an ETA, after all) and picture yourself ordering multiple Mai Tais at your poolside getaway this summer.

Talking Bracelets Of Swiss High Quality Replica Watches

While removable and replaceable, vintage bracelets have contributed to the success and iconic stature of brands like Rolex and Omega just as much as the Daytona and Speedmaster have. Normally, we like to focus on the best replica watches themselves here in the “Vintage Watches” article, and for good reason. The “head” of the watch is where most of the intrigue happens. But as much as dial design, movement architecture, and hand shapes were very carefully considered in the vintage era, bracelet design, construction, and selection was an art in its own right.

From across a room – or even across a dinner table – bracelets are actually far more recognizable than the actual Swiss made fake watches. Not everything is about what someone sees on your wrist, and some would argue this factor should be back-of-mind when purchasing a watch. That being said, wrist appeal is the watch world’s version of curb appeal. Is Rolex the brand it is today without the “free” publicity of its Oyster, Jubilee, and President bracelets? Just look at the Nautilus and Royal Oak. Integrated right into the design, all you need to see is a silhouette of the bezel and bracelet to know what someone is wearing. That is powerful.

After a week off from listing fresh vintage AAA quality replica watches, the team is back with a more “normal” drop and article with a bit of a twist. Rather than picking their favorite watch from the “newness,” Saori, Rich, and Sean bring a take on bracelets around the vintage pieces available right now. Read on for “Talking Bracelets” or check out all of the latest vintage releases in the HODINKEE Shop.

Rolex – Master Of The Bracelet Game

Creating an excellent bracelet design is an art form in itself because it has to have the optimal balance between form and function. When it comes to the most recognizable bracelet designs, perfect Rolex fake watches bracelets are the first ones to come to mind. The Jubilees, Oysters, and Presidents remain in production today, and the designs have inspired countless other wristwatch bracelets in horological history. I know there are some people out there who are a bit ambivalent about vintage bracelets because they appear more fragile than their modern counterparts, but please keep an open mind and don’t be too quick to dismiss their greatness. Once you experience them on your wrist, you will change your mind.

My favorite is the vintage Oyster “rivet bracelet” style, just like the one on this 1965 cheap copy Rolex Explorer Ref. 1016 watches With Tropical Dial (bracelet ref. 7206), perhaps also because it coincides with my favorite era for vintage watches. The rivet bracelet design appeared in the early 1950s and continued on to about the mid-1960s, so a fairly short production period, overall. The rivets on the side of the links serve the functional purpose of holding the folded links together. But to me, they also serve a subtle decorative aspect that’s very vintage Rolex since it’s period-specific and they do not appear in the later eras. They are considerably lighter and comfortable to wear, and make that unmistakable vintage bracelet sound when you move around. Bonus points if you find the stretch references!

By the mid- to late-1960s, the next generation “folded link” bracelet appears, as you can see in this 1974 Rolex Date Ref. 1500 replica watches for sale (bracelet ref. 7835). To increase durability, the links are slightly thicker overall than the “rivet” variation and are folded inwards to hold the pin inside, as opposed to having the ends exposed with the rivets on the outside like the earlier variation.

And last but not least, is the “solid link” variation from the mid-1970s, which is carried over to modern day Rolex and becomes the new standard as you see in this 1984 luxury fake Rolex Submariner Ref. 16800 watches With Full Set (bracelet ref. 93150). This is the sturdiest of the bunch as it is a solid link without any visible folds, which minimizes the chance of the link separating by accident over time. Plus, the screw tops at the ends of the links make the process of resizing the bracelet a lot easier than the earlier designs.

When it comes to bracelets (and straps), they are more often than not the “unsung heroes,” meaning they are either a one-size-fits-all solution, a clear afterthought, or a failed attempt at trying too hard. But let’s not forget that without bracelets and straps, China super clone wrist watches will not be on your wrists. It’s that important if you think about it. Especially when it comes to bracelets, it’s a greater challenge since the pieces of metal need to fit around the curves of your wrist with comfort and maintain a cohesive structure together with the watch. But when the pairing between the watch and the bracelets are a perfect match, they truly make the watch sing. If you want to dive further into the history of Rolex bracelets, I highly recommend you to check out HODINKEE alum Louis Westphalen’s excellent report, here.

Stretch Links – Vintage Forgiveness

It’s not quite a Twist-O-Flex (your arm hairs will thank you) and it’s no solid link Oyster, but somewhere in between sits this best quality replica Omega Constellation watches’ bracelet. It has rivets, fitted end links, and a look all its own. This is one of the more intriguing bracelets to come through the shop in months.

Before toolless micro-adjust, brands took a different approach to the shrinking and swelling of a wrist throughout a long day of watch wearing – stretch. From a few links down by the clasp on Omega “flat links” to full stretch throughout, like this Constellation and a bunch of early Oysters from 1:1 Rolex fake watches as well, this was the easiest answer to the problem of precise fit in the 1950s and 60s. The result is a purely vintage feel on the wrist. I’ve always been drawn to the amount of force needed to get these bracelets to stretch; you can’t really do it by accident. The stretch is there when you need it but the watch is never going to fall off your wrist.

If you’ve been tuning into our drops for a while, you should remember this white gold Connie; it has been available for a while. And even though it doesn’t have the name recognition of a Day-Date, much of the allure of this piece is in the metal. Feeling the springs in this stretch bracelet, the heft of a white gold watch, and the sharp edges of this case, that’s where the charm is, here. AAA replica watches with period stretch bracelets are some of the most tactile-necessary pieces in the vintage category – you really have to experience them.

Speedmaster – Everybody’s Got Choices

I’m excited to talk about bracelets this week because it gives us a little chance to discuss some of the overlooked things that go into how a watch feels. While we’ve often extolled the virtues of changing a strap and how it can make even the most modest of fake watches wholesale site look like they’re worth a million, a bracelet change can take a more cumbersome piece and slim it down to something more svelte.

Today I’m looking at two replica Omega watches store bracelets – the more modern of the two is the chunky ref.1498 and the latter is the partial stretch flat link ref. 1039. The 1498 bracelet is occasionally maligned by some Speedmaster fans as being too heavy, and thick for the Moonwatch’s 1960s design, but for me, the ’90s bracelet holds some nostalgia, and has a certain sturdy charm. Where the flat link, and the particle stretch in particular, is probably the most desirable and what seems to be, by popular opinion, the more correct feeling for the Speedy. So much so that there are multiple companies offering replicas that fit current production Moonwatches. Also, let’s not forget that not only did OMEGA see fit to supply the 1039 bracelet to their most capable chrono, they also attached it to their second-deepest diver at the time. Clearly, the brand had faith that this bracelet would stand up to whatever most of its customers could throw at it.

While there have been a great many bracelets that have come supplied on the perfect online Omega Speedmaster fake watches (like the super-cool and almost Oyster-like Ref. 1168 one that came supplied with the Apollo-Soyuz watch), I would say that these two really run the gamut of what one can experience when picking not only what reference you want, but how the watch is kitted out.

One Thing Worked For LeBron James This Season: His 1:1 Perfect Fake Watches

Well, it’s not the season LeBron James and his Los Angeles Lakers hoped for. But! the thing that awed me most even during a down season was his rotation of US luxury replica watches: the Tiffany-dial Patek Philippe Nautilus, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual in (unofficial) Tiffany blue, killer Richard Milles, and experimental Audemars Piguets. James’s cherry-on-top is this AP Royal Oak 50th anniversary edition.

Barack Obama’s Rolex Cellini Replica Watches

Nowadays, most Rolex fans gravitate to the brand’s smoking-hot sport models like the Submariner, GMT, and Daytona. The Crown’s dressier high quality fake Rolex Cellini watches, though, has at least one important co-signer in Barack Obama. This is Obama’s important-event piece. He wore it to the White House this week—and it’s also the piece he’s wearing in his official presidential portrait.

Baby Keem’s Rolex GMT-Master II Fake Watches

On Baby Keem’s now-Grammy-award-winning track “Family Ties,” Kendrick Lamar claims allegiance to the “Rollie gang.” So it’s only fitting that Keem would wear excellent best Rolex GMT-Master II copy watches to accept the trophy. The black-and-brown GMT known as the Root Beer is currently trending in the Rolex universe—Rolex-owned Tudor just announced its own GMT with this colour combination.

Carlos Alcaraz’s Replica Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Watches

18-year-old tennis phenom Alcaraz is hailed as the next Rafael Nadal despite the fact the two have little in common besides their Spanish heritage. Among their differences is their Swiss movements super clone watches preferences. Nadal is a longtime Richard Mille man who collaborates on special-edition pieces, while Alcaraz is taking the more traditional route for great tennis players. After winning the Miami Open last weekend, Alcaraz was seen wearing top Swiss Rolex Daytona replica watches. In that sense, at least, Alcaraz is more like the next Roger Federer.

A Comprehensive Collector’s Guide To The AAA Swiss Fake Rolex Explorer I Watches

With its three-hand simplicity and discreetly wearable size, the luxury Rolex Explorer replica watches is, more than any of the Crown’s sport watches, the one that skirts the line dividing the tool watch from the dress watch. And yet it’s also a Rolex most plainly made for legibility in adverse conditions and exposure to the elements.

Born for high-altitude Himalayan climbing, the Explorer arrived in 1953, the same year as the Submariner and the Turn-O-Graph. To say it was a major year for Rolex, and for 1:1 best Rolex fake watches more broadly, would be an understatement. It shaped the watch company that Rolex would become, the sport segment as we know it, and the watch-collecting pyramid that Rolex sits atop.

The Explorer has come to embody what many see as the ideal “one nice watch” to own. Its simplicity and classic design allow it to go anywhere, not only far-off mountaintops. And the reference 1016 in particular, which spanned an incredible 29 years of production, from 1960 to 1989, stands as a true vintage hall-of-famer. With its subtle 36mm size, no-date simplicity, and crisp black dial – whether gilt or matte – it’s the sport Rolex that doesn’t turn heads – the anti-hype Rolex, if you will. The “if you know, you know”perfect US replica Rolex watches.

At auction, quality Explorer examples bring in respectable sums, but nothing like the Submariners or the Daytonas of the world. In fact, if you search online for Explorer records at auction, you’re likely to return many results for Explorer-dial Submariners bearing the 3-6-9 dial. The Explorer is a humble watch for a Rolex professional model launched 69 years ago. And yet it was the Rolex worn by Ian Fleming, and the one he was most likely thinking of when he decided which watch James Bond would wear.

Today, the Explorer is something of an outlier within the modern Rolex sport watch lineup. Its compact dimensions have hewn to the midcentury design of its birth with only occasional detours, such as when it was temporarily beefed up to 39mm in 2010 with the reference 214270. Since then, the Explorer has returned to its 36mm roots, albeit with another unexpected curveball thrown at collectors, the option of a two-tone case and bracelet. As the smallest, simplest, and most consistent of the cheap copy Rolex professional watches, the Explorer isn’t really here to surprise or wow us – so when it unexpectedly does just that, the effect is phenomenal.

I’ve provided production dates for the references in this article wherever I could. But it is important to understand that the numbers on the inside caseback tell us about case production. Often, wholesale replica watches weren’t assembled until a year later and then sold after that, in some cases many years later. In the mid-’70s, Rolex stopped putting case production dates on the inside casebacks of their watches. Serial numbers printed between the lugs offer the best insight into when those watches were made, but this is also something of an imprecise science.

Origins In Exploration

Just as the Rolex Explorer fake watches for men itself requires no introduction to watch lovers, neither does the story of its genesis. In late May 1953, Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmund Hillary became the first alpinists to conquer the world’s highest peak, and found themselves instantly catapulted into the history books. On their expedition they carried the Rolex chronometer, below, today considered a Pre-Explorer, which now lives in Zurich’s Beyer Museum below a multigenerational family-owned watch shop. You can buy a ticket and see it for yourself.

We look at Rolex’s associations through the years – with commercial aviation, diving, militaries, and the arts and more – and see a deft marketer’s touch, a propensity to be early or first, and very often simply present when great people achieved great things. In supporting Hillary and Norgay as they climbed to history, Rolex established itself as a maker of Swiss movements replica watches that could go the extra mile and be taken into the world’s most harrowing circumstances with confidence. And they were well-prepared for the watches that would come next. The Crown registered the trademark for the Explorer name in January of that year.

Now, it bears mentioning that while Hillary and Norgay indeed had a watch from Rolex in their kit, they also had another, from the English brand Smiths. Both brands sponsored the bid to reach the peak of Everest. Citing period evidence, an article in Outdoor Journal concluded that it was a Smiths watch, and not a Rolex, that made it all the way to the summit. Regardless of whether a Rolex made it to the top, there can be no doubt that it was Rolex and its Explorer that capitalized most on its association with the expedition.

The same year as Norgay’s and Hillary’s expedition witnessed the introduction of the reference 6350, the first watch to feature the name Explorer on the dial for all examples. In many instances, its predecessor, the 6150, says Precision in place of Explorer, causing many to refer to it as a pre-Explorer, as well. But we happen to have a 6150 Explorer for this edition of Reference Points (it’s also in the video, above, co-starring gentleman-dealer Eric Wind), so we’ll begin our climb through the history of the world’s most famous go-anywhere watch right there.

Reference 6150 (1952-1953)

Reference 6150 (Explorer Above 6:00, Long Hour Hand)

The Reference 6150 is the immediate predecessor to the reference 6350, the watch that many collectors argue is the first Explorer. Traits that will typify the Explorer through the years are already here. Produced from 1952 / 1953, the Reference 6150 has the same  36mm size we see through all of the rest of the 20th century and much of the 21st, up to and including today’s current Rolex Explorer super clone watches online store. The reference 6150 is similar to the 6098 and 6298. While it features the 3-6-9 layout that would go on to be called the Explorer dial, only some feature a line of text above six o’clock reading “Explorer.” The rest, and indeed the majority, say “Precision.” The example we see here is one of the former, and it also features a long hour hand. One thing you will notice is that there is no OCC text on the dial. That’s because this watch is not a chronometer, further separating it from the rest of the Explorers. The fact it is not a chronometer and that not all of this reference say the word “Explorer” on the dial has meant that some collectors do not consider the reference 6150 a true Explorer.

Reference 6350 (1953 to 1955)

Reference 6350 (Pencil Hands, Waffle Dial)

The immediate successor to the 6150 is the reference 6350 – which everyone agrees is an Explorer, and that some argue is the first Explorer I. This example has a textured waffle dial, also known as the honeycomb dial, named for its patterned surface. While the waffle dial can be found on other Rolex replica watches site from the period, the 6350 is the only Explorer reference in which it figures. Our example has pencil hands, though there are also 6350s with Mercedes hour hands, sometimes with a syringe minute hand. Most of the examples we see have an inside caseback number that indicates the case was produced in 1953; however, it seems they were assembled over a period of several years after that.

The 6350 is an officially certified chronometer, a worthwhile point of distinction from the 6150, one watch earlier. When one talks about the Rolex Explorer, one is really talking about a chronometer. The Explorer has no complications, it has no fancy bells and whistles. Until just last year, it had only a single metal to its name – stainless steel. It is about as basic as a Rolex professional model gets, and telling time accurately and legibly is the name of the game.

For the most part, the luxury fake watches we will be looking at today are chronometers: Officially Certified Chronometers in the first grouping, and Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified once we get to our first 1016 in this article. We’ll see a few additional non-chronometers, but those watches aren’t technically Explorers. Read on to learn more.

Reference 6610 (1955 to 1959)

Between 1955 and 1959, Rolex produced the reference 6610, the last of the older batch of Explorers that would eventually give way to the 1016, one of the longest-running Rolex watch references ever. We have four special examples of this reference, which is far rarer than the 1016 as it was made for a dramatically shorter period of time. You’ll notice that the text above 6 o’clock on each of the following four perfect replica watches reads “Officially Certified Chronometer” like the OCC text of the 6350 before it.

Reference 6610 (Red Depth Rating): 1955 to 1956

Some of the earliest Explorer reference 6610 examples feature a very subtle red depth rating (50m = 165ft) just below the word Explorer in the upper half of their dial, a style of marking seen in other high quality fake Rolex sport watches from the period, including the GMT-Master reference. 6542, Datejusts, and even 34mm Oyster Perpetuals, reflecting marketing efforts to share their water-resistant characteristics more broadly during the early days of dive watches for commercial purchase.

Here are two very nice examples of early Explorers with depth ratings sold by Phillips, one with a red depth rating and the other with a gilt depth rating.

Reference 6610 (Albino)

Next we have a white, or “Albino,” version of the 6610, one of the rarest and most valuable Explorer variations. There are also GMT-Master reference 6542s with white “Albino” dials from this era, as well as Submariners. Later “Albino” reference 1016s have come to market. This particular Albino 6610 dates to 1957.

Reference 6610 (Lollipop Seconds Hand, Chapter Ring): 1957

This brings us toward the end of the 6610 run. The Explorer has traditionally been a watch made for maximum legibility in low-light conditions, and here we see a large white luminous seconds hand, similar to the lollipop seconds hands on some Submariners with a case production of 1957.

Reference 6610 (Smaller Lume Circle On Seconds Hand): 1959

Finally, we have the very last version of the 6610, where the luminous circle is smaller than in the previous version. This version also has a rare “Big Logo” bracelet.

The Rolex Explorer Reference 1016 (1960 to 1989)

The conclusion of the 6610 brings us to the beloved reference 1016, the one most vintage lovers think of when their mind goes to the Explorer I.

With the 1016, we see the introduction of “Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified” text on the dial, which accompanies the transition from the caliber 1030 to the new caliber 1560 microstella-adjusted movement. Later, in the mid-’60s, Rolex will upgrade to the high-beat-for-its-time caliber 1570, which runs at 19,800 vph compared to the 18,000 vph caliber 1560. In the early 1970s, Rolex added a hacking feature to this movement, which would continue to power the 1016 until the end of its production run in 1989.

We’d like to thank collector Andrew Hantel for his detailed research into this reference, which can be found on his excellent and aptly named website devoted to the reference, Explorer1016.com.

After we chart the long and storied course of this fan-favorite reference, we’ll hear from prominent collectors who will tell us why they love the Rolex Explorer reference 1016.

Reference 14270 (First Version, Blackout): 1989 to 1991

Here we are with the first 14270, the watch that took up the Explorer mantle upon the retirement of the 1016. The classic 36mm size that has defined the Explorer since its early days remains, as do the 3-6-9 numerals. But whereas the 1016’s numerals were painted on, the 14270 sees the introduction of higher-end applied markers and numerals. The 14270 isn’t shy about the fact that it’s a luxury tool watch with a distinctive modern flair. The Blackout’s namesake attribute is the black lacquer filling its applied numerals, lending a somewhat stealthy vibe to the dial (though the markers are still lume-filled). From the beginning, the Explorer had been viewed as a no-frills, go-anywhere tool watch, but this model came with a design that compromised low-light legibility for the sake of style. As such, it’s something of an outlier. It’s also incredibly collectible, costing much more than the rest of the China replica watches we will be looking at within the reference 14270 range. The blackout is a very rare model by Rolex standards, found only in late-E and early-X serial numbers, giving them a production range of 1989 to 1991.

Reference 14270 T-Swiss (Drilled lugs): 1991 to 1994

Immediately following the “Blackout,” we have the T-Swiss, the longest-running variant of 14270. With the exception of some very late U-series models, the T-Swiss has tritium-filled hands and indexes, as the nickname would indicate. Much like the 14270 more broadly, the T-Swiss inhabits a murky middle period in fake watches paypal. Like all 14270s, the T-Swiss has a crystal of sapphire and its movement is the caliber 3000, but only the first three years of production have fully drilled-through lugs. Starting in 1994, plain, or undrilled lugs became the order of the day. The 14270 is a reference that manifests the process by which Rolex became the modern watchmaker it is today.

Reference 14270 T-Swiss (Closed lugs): 1994 to 1998

Starting in 1994, plain lugs became de rigueur, one more modern feature taking the place of a design element associated with the vintage era. The 14270 is a reference that shows the process by which Rolex became the modern watchmaker it is today. From here on out, all 14270s – and all Explorers, for that matter – will feature undrilled lugs.

Reference 14270 Swiss Only: 1998 to 1999

And here we have the penultimate variation of the 14270, the Swiss Only, made for a brief period of time right at the tail end of the ’90s. By now, photo-reactive LumiNova has taken over, and with the absence of tritium, the tenuous connection to vintage best quality replica watches is gone. Like the later T-Swiss models, the Swiss Only has plain lugs.

After the Swiss Only, in the final two years of the 14270 (1999 to 2001) we will see the Swiss Made, the watch that followed the one here. Its name indicates the use of Super-LumiNova, which would continue into the next Explorer reference, the virtually identical 114270.

Reference 114270 (2001 to 2010)

Like the last 14270, the 114270 uses Super-LumiNova. And features a 36mm case. And has “Swiss Made” written at the 6 o’clock position. What sets them apart is this watch’s use of the upgraded caliber 3130 and solid end links. This is something that we see from time to time with Rolex. Changes are made incrementally, and sometimes that means the only upgrades in a new watch are hidden away behind a layer of steel.

The 114270 had a near-decade-long run, its subtle improvements over the 14270 having seemingly been enough to make Rolex see fit to leave the Explorer be for a while, though there was the addition of an engraved rehaut late in the production of this model. But after about 21 years of extremely consistent Explorer design, and 57 years of rigid adherence to the 36mm case size, things were about to change. Big time.

Reference 214270

Reference 214270 Mark 1 (2010 to 2016)

In 2010, Rolex did something unexpected. For the first time in the more than 50-year history of the Rolex Explorer, the Crown’s simplest and most discreet stainless steel sport watch, known for bridging tool-watch toughness and dress watch dimensions, tipped the 36mm scale. Looking back, it’s surprising that it took this long.

The 214270 saw its own movement upgrade, this time to the caliber 3132. The movement was based on the 3130 we’ve already seen, but is endowed with Rolex’s in-house shock system and Parachrom hairspring. The first six years of production featured a configuration in which the 3-6-9 Explorer numerals were uncoated white gold, with no white paint to heighten legibility. The handsets seemed short with respect to the dial’s diameter, and were widely panned by the watch-collecting community.

Reference 214270 Mark 2 (2016 to 2021)

The handset was redesigned in 2016 in order to better fit the dial, and the numerals were once again applied metal, only now they were filled with lume. With the Mark 2 variation, the design was improved, and there was no reason to believe that Rolex had any intention other than to methodically improve upon the Explorer, as it had already done for decades, in its new modern sport watch size.

The Current Generation

Last year brought yet another surprise. Actually, two. The Explorer returned with an all-new reference, the 124270. Rolex upgraded its simplest sport watch to the current generation of automatic movements with Chronergy Escapement and 70 hours of power reserve. But that wasn’t a surprise. The first surprise came with a return to the tried and true, and beloved by watch enthusiasts, 36mm case. After an 11-year diversion, the Explorer was back where nerdy watch lovers wanted it. The second surprise, a big one, was a second model. A Rolesor model. AKA the Two-Tone Explorer.

Reference 124270 (2021 to present)

As with every trade show in which Rolex participates, the watch world had their eyes focused on the Crown as the 2021 edition of Watches & Wonders began. Everyone, it seemed, wanted to know what they would do next. The chatter that year focused mostly on the Explorer I’s cousin, the Explorer II, which was celebrating its 50th anniversary. And though the Explorer II did indeed receive a number of incremental updates, it was what Rolex did with the Explorer I that garnered the most headlines. Returning its simplest Professional watch to its previous 36mm size proved popular with enthusiasts, a move that came along with a number of more predictable and less exciting enhancements. The movement was now the caliber 3230 with Chronergy Escapement and a healthy 70 hours of power reserve. This watch is remarkably similar in appearance to the erstwhile 14270 and 114270 models. The quickest tell is the Rolex Coronet between Swiss and Made, at the 6 o’clock position.

Reference 124273 (2021 to present)

This is the shocker, and the piece that everyone still seems to be obsessed with nearly a year after its release. From its early days, the Explorer was the no-nonsense tool watch with chronometer-rated automatic movement. Its principle function was to deliver the time legibly and accurately to a wearer who had more serious concerns than the safety of his a precious luxury watch. And yet, the Explorer has on very rare occasions gestured to style at the expense of sheer performance or durability. Remember the “Blackout” variation of the reference 14270, with its numerals in dark lacquer set against a glossy black dial? What’s easily the most collectible 14270 variation isn’t the easiest 14270 to read in low light.
