Rolex Explorer ref. #114270 C-2003 Item #2645 SOLD
This one is a wonderful example of the last of the truly classic sports watches from Rolex, AND with box and papers! This 2003 Explorer was the last of the breed, a true classic with roots dating back to the 1950’s. The new model is still called the Explorer, but the case went from 36mm to 39mm, completely changing the look and feel of the model.
The Rolex Explorer is the simplest of the Rolex line of Chronometer Certified sport watches. With no date window or other complications, it is just a fine, clean-looking watch in a sturdy 36mm stainless steel Oyster case. This watch comes on the newer SEL (solid end link) Oyster Fliplock Bracelet with end links machined from a solid piece of stainless steel. The clasp is also the newer style small double fliplock.
This dial and hands are perfect. In 2003 Rolex was using Super Luminova so both still glow brightly in the dark.
The watch comes fully serviced including all new gaskets, and is keeping very good time. During service, we completely disassembled both the case and bracelet and ultrasonically cleaned them. The watch has passed both a pressure and vacuum test, and the printout of the results is included.
The watch comes in a genuine Rolex inner and outer presentation box set along with is original Chronometer Certificate with matching reference and serial numbers, Factory Service booklet, Your Rolex Oyster Booklet, Rolex polishing cloth, Swimpruf hang tag, and Chronometer hang tag.
A true classic in great, pre-owned condition!
