The Rolex Explorer is one of the most highly valued and sought out models for buyers with a lot of experience in the often complicated world of vintage watch collecting. Originally based on the model worn by Tenzing Norgay in the first ever successful ascent of Everest in 1953, the Explorer was a versatile timepiece that enjoyed numerous variations. This reference 14270 is an excellent example. Starting in 1989, it brought a well-received modern upgrade to the Explorer family, while staying faithful to the original model—and also introduced the superb calibre 3000.
