The second development concerns the notable 3 – 6 – 9 lists – absolutely the main piece of the Explorer – that are currently likewise covered with blue Chromalight brilliant material, much the same as the remainder of the lists and the hands (as an update, the past version of the Rolex Explorer 214270 was highlighting plain steel, polished 3 – 6 – 9 lists). In the event that the day-time look will stay close, it will then again get a superior clarity low light conditions – of course with the possibility of a more judicious showcase in mind.
The rest of the watch stays comparable, implying that the 2016 Rolex Explorer 214270 actually includes its 39mm Oyster case, in 904L treated steel, water impervious to 100m, with level and cleaned bezel and a 3-interface Oyster wristband with brushed surfaces and the Oysterlock fasten, with Easylink adjustment.
Finally – and this shouldn’t be belittled – the 2016 Rolex Explorer 214270 highlights similar upgrades than the 2016 Rolex Daytona regarding exactness of the development, implying that it has the Superlative Chronometer accreditation, done in-house by Rolex and with stricter models (- 2/+2 seconds of the day). It likewise is ensured for 5 years.
Overall, we’re talking minor however clever enhancements.
