WHY THIS WATCHThe Rolex Explorer was Rolex’s first sports watch, when it got introduced way back in 1953. This watch was marketed and produced to be a rugged adventure watch. This particular model, the 214270, was introduced at Basel-World in 2010. This was a major release as Rolex made some very big changes to the Explorer. Rolex upped the case size to 39mm, introduced the solid-link 904L steel bracelet, and updated the movement with the introduction of the Calibre 3132 movement.
The watch was very controversial when it was released for a few reasons. First, not everyone was happy with upgraded size to 39mm. Additionally, there was the lack of lume on the 3, 6, and 9 markers. For some reason Rolex decided to replace the lume filled markers with solid white gold markers instead. Many found this to be unacceptable as this is a sports watch after all, and lume is a must. Additionally, the Mercedes hands seemed too short for the dial of the now larger 39mm case. This dial configuration was to be called the Mark 1 dial (or Mark I, or “Blackout”), and is now considered the less desirable version of the 39mm explorer.
In 2016, Rolex actually listened to collectors and made some revisions to the 39mm explorer. The hands were widened and lengthened to match the profile the new bigger dial. Most importantly, Rolex brought back the lume-filled indices at 3,6, and 9. This dial configuration is called the Mark 2 (or Mark ii) dial and is considered the more desirable dial configuration.
