In the history of the watch industry, Rolex has become the most well-known brand that is still in production today. Aside from the fact that this business has been around for decades, you can expect anything you acquire from Rolex to last a long time. Rolex established its reputation by designing watches that can endure the vagaries of daily life; it is renowned for the timeless qualities of its designs. Rolex watches are highly durable because of the use of innovative materials, which are now all made in-house. Rolex has always strived for meticulousness and accuracy in all aspects of their production.
The Rolex Explorer series is without a doubt the most significant collection of watches ever made by the brand. Rolex launched its latest Rolex Explorer models for 2021 today, and I’m sure many Rolex enthusiasts are eager to get their wrists on one.
Rolex Explorer 39 214270
The Rolex Explorer benefited from its Himalayan experience in developing its easily distinguishable hour and minute hands, as well as its iconic, highly legible black dial with luminescent indices and broad Arabic numerals at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock. It’s made to be legible even in low light, which is important for explorers. It served as the foundation for all subsequent Oyster Professional models. Compared to previous models, 2013 214270 is 3mm wider. The watch is powered by the Swiss 3132 Calibre movement, which is known for its precision and accuracy. The watch is a full package of luxury and efficiency, designed to meet the needs of explorers while also serving as a fashion statement.

In terms of the bezel, movement, case, cuff, and dial, the Rolex Explorer 214270 is a cross between the Submariner 114060 and the Oyster Perpetual 39. It has a 39mm Oyster steel monobloc middle case with a more curvaceous profile than the trapezoid and smooth profile of the Oyster steel Submariner 40mm. The bezel on the Rolex Explorer is very unique, with the OP having a high polished and domed-like bezel. It’s important to note that this Rolex doesn’t come with a Cerachrom bezel insert, so you can rest assured that you won’t crack it at any stage. Its water-resistant capability allows it to withstand a 100-meter depth without a problem.
The Rolex Explorer 214270 2016 is driven by the Rolex Caliber 3132, which is the same as the Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39. It also comes with top-of-the-line Paraflex shock absorbers and a 48-hour power reserve. It has a new dial with Arabic numerals on the hour hands at 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock, and 9 o’clock. These are packed with luminous content, Chromalight, and flawless 18-carat white gold hands that are also Chromalight-filled. The Rolex Explorer’s bracelet and case are made of stainless steel grade 904L. A 5mm Easylink comfort extension is included with the Oyster bracelet.
Why Rolex Timepieces?
All over the world, Rolex is applauded, appreciated, and recognized. Rolex is known for making more than just watches, and their timepieces have taken on a life of their own. Rolex watches are considered masterpieces by collectors because they are well-made and reliable timekeepers. Today, in this article, we’ll explain why Rolex timepieces, such as the Rolex Explorer models we had, continue to amaze collectors.
Use an expensive and difficult to machine steel
Most watch collectors know Rolex uses a unique form of steel that no one else uses. Stainless steel isn’t all created equal. Steel comes in a variety of sizes and grades, but most steel watches are made of 316L stainless steel. 904L steel is now used exclusively in Rolex watches.
Has its own science laboratory
Rolex goes above and beyond. At their various locations, Rolex has not one, but several types of exceptionally well-equipped technical science laboratories. These labs aim to not only develop new watches and components for them but also to develop more reliable and efficient manufacturing techniques.
Their movements are all hand-assembled and verified
Rolex watches receive all the hands-on human attention that you’d expect from a fine Swiss-made timepiece. Rolex unquestionably possesses the most advanced watchmaking equipment in the world. Robots and other automated tasks are primarily used for tasks that humans are not as proficient at. Most of these machines, however, are still run by humans. All are crafted by hand, from the Rolex movements to the bracelets. A computer, on the other hand, will assist with tasks such as applying the proper pressure while connecting pins, aligning components, and pushing hands down. All Rolex watch hands are also manually adjusted by a professional technician.
Creates their own gold
Though they have a few suppliers that give them steel, still Rolex also works the steel in-house to manufacture all the parts. They make all the gold and platinum themselves. Rolex takes 24k gold and transforms it into 18k yellow, white, or Everose gold.
Rolex Is Technology
Rolex can provide robotic assistance to its facilities when required. The master supply room is the epicenter of Rolex’s automation prowess. Robotic servants store and retrieve trays containing pieces or full watches from massive columns of parts. A watchmaker in need of parts simply places an order with the system, and it is shipped to them in around 6-8 minutes through a series of conveyor systems. Many Rolex parts are given an initial machine polish by a robot, but they are also hand-finished and polished.
No matter how the technology conquers the world, for sure Rolex will survive and give its collector the most dynamic and reliable timepieces that for sure will last a lifetime. We can’t deny the utter sense of trust, durability, and integrity that the brand name communicates. Whatever Rolex series is released in the future, collectors will certainly be amazed and the Rolex will remain valuable as a keepsake.
Rolex’s dedication to original designs seems to have ensured that Rolex watches would never go out of style, even as new materials and technology gradually find their way into new models.
