The Rolex Explorer 114270 holds an interesting place in horological history. It is a vastly under-appreciated timepiece in collecting circles, but one with a serious cult following amongst enthusiasts. It has the rare distinction of being, quite likely, the very first modern Rolex sports watch, ushering in a new era of watchmaking and watch design for the brand. The Rolex Explorer 114270 is a watch that is so simple in its execution that people just don't talk about it. Well, it is time to put the spotlight on this sleeping giant
