  • Condition

    This Rolex Explorer 14270 is a true testament to the resilience and timeless design of Rolex’s craftsmanship. While it shows visible signs of wear, these are merely superficial marks of its journey, adding character to its story.

    Despite these signs of wear, the watch functions exceptionally well, maintaining accurate time as testament to its quality and durability. A significant aspect of its appeal is the service history; a maintenance carried out by Rolex in 2018, with the service receipt included, ensuring confidence in its upkeep.
