Product Detail

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 

I am a watch collector as well as a buyer and seller of new, pre-owned, antique, and vintage watches

I only sell genuine, authentic, watches in "Good" to "Pristine" condition

Vintage watch outlet is not a marketplace, we own every watch that we sell

This is a vintage used watch. It has lived a life before you, so you should not expect it to be new and flawless. If you want a flawless new watch, please do not buy this.  If you want a piece of history in the form of a nice vintage piece, or possibly a dated inscription on the case back, then this may be right for you. Because most vintage watches being offered are between 30-70 years old, small imperfections, scratches, and wear are to be expected

Buying a pre-owned watch is like buying a pre-owned car....it is all about condition, condition, condition!

Water resistance is not guaranteed on vintage or pre-owned watches unless otherwise stated in the listing

Please note that all pictures are taken on the macro setting. This makes even the slightest imperfections, shadows during photography, and specks of dust appear much more prominent even though they are often not visible without magnification

A careful shopper who takes the time to study the photos, reads the entire description, and asks pertinent questions is our best customer

You will be pleasantly surprised and receive many compliments when wearing your watch. There is nothing that draws attention quite like a stunning watch 

Because older vintage wristwatches were made smaller than watches made today, men or women can wear this and would look fabulous on your wrist
