The Rolex Explorer watch was particularly noticeable in 2010, because the latest model of this classic watch appeared in a highly anticipated attitude. Many of the watch’s technical enhancements are hidden, and its solid and elegant style has always remained the same. The most significant change, if the case is enlarged to 39 mm (compared to the previous 36 mm diameter), makes the new model look more stable. Today’s Watch House brings you a brief review of an Explorer I watch, the official model of the watch is 214270.
This extraordinary initiative has made the Oyster a symbol of accuracy and reliability. For this important moment in Yongzhi, Rolex launched this commemorative watch in 1953: Rolex Explorer watch. This is the accumulation of experience from decades of challenging Himalaya mountaineering journeys and further improvement of its excellent watchmaking technology, resulting in the most durable Oyster watch. The watch is equipped with a sturdy all-steel strap and a new double-locked crown with dual waterproof system. The Explorer watch is the first Rolex watch specifically designed for professional use. As a result, the explorer type has established a symbolic status that has never been seen before.
The clear and simple line design of the new Oyster Perpetual Explorer not only allows it to establish the status of a classic timepiece, but also shows fresh vitality. The 904L stainless steel polished outer ring is not only sturdy and elegant in design, it interprets the classic and timeless tradition of explorers.
The Explorer-type Oyster case is water-resistant to 100 meters, making it a model of durability. The unique middle case is cast from 904L stainless steel with excellent corrosion resistance. The triangular-shaped case back is screwed tightly by Rolex watchmakers’ exclusive tools to completely seal the case.
The Explorer watch is equipped with an Oyster strap and a Rolex-patented Oyster safety clasp to prevent the strap from being opened in an accidental situation; it is also equipped with a cleverly designed Rolex patented EASYLINK easy-adjustable chain link, which can be adjusted quickly The millimeter strap length makes wearing more comfortable in all situations.
The winding crown uses Rolex’s patented double-lock waterproof system, which can be firmly screwed on the case. The mirror is made of scratch-resistant sapphire glass. The Explorer-type fully sealed Oyster case gives the highest precision movement the best protection from water, dust, pressure and impact.
The dial is simple and generous, in contrast to the hour markers and hands. The hands and hour markers are coated with a fluorescent substance that can emit blue light for a long time.
The watch uses a 3132 self-winding movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. Like all permanent movements, the 3132 movement has also received the Swiss Official Accreditation for Timepieces, which is specifically awarded to precision watches that successfully pass the Swiss Precision Timepiece Testing Center (COSC). The construction of this movement is the same as all oyster movements, with unparalleled reliability.
Summary: The movement’s balance swing component is the heart of the watch, equipped with a stable balance wheel, and its inertial oscillation period is precisely adjusted by the gold MICROSTELLA fine adjustment screw. The balance swing assembly is installed in the PARAFLEX cushioning device and is firmly supported by a parallel plate bridge with adjustable height. The PARAFLEX cushioning device was independently developed and patented by Rolex, which can increase the shock resistance of the watch by 50%. The balance swing assembly uses Rolex’s patented blue PARACHROM hairspring, made of Rolex’s own alloy. The hairspring is completely immune to magnetic field interference and maintains outstanding stability under temperature changes. The shock resistance is 10 times higher than that of traditional hairsprings. At present, the watch is priced at 51,100 yuan in the Rolex store in Beijing Xidan Mall.
