Replica Rolex Explorer Stainless Steel Black dial 214270 Review

The Rolex Explorer I 214270 replica is, basically, a combination of the Oyster Perpetual 39 along with Submariner “No Date” in relation to the situation, bezel, dial, bracelet, and movement. This nicely leads us to the stage I started with, that in relation to both cost featuring, many think they’ll finish tabs on good all possible after they choose the replica Explorer I.Though there are as many priorities and approaches as there are subtle differences among these three collections, here’s a quick run-down on how the replica Rolex Explorer I fits in.

The Dial

The dial of the replica Rolex Explorer I 214270 now features the blue Chromalight display — essentially BGW9 luminescent material, the sort that lasts longer than the much more common Super-LumiNova C3, but isn’t quite as bright right after it’s been charged with a powerful light source.

Although apparently a bit less thickly lacquered than that of the Submariner, the dial is still as shiny as Elton John’s fingernails, which is annoying once combined with the luster of the 18ct white gold “professional hands” and the blinding reflectivity of the non-AR-coated front sapphire crystal. The upside is that it will be easier for those who have no clue about watches to tell that you are wearing an expensive, really very shiny watch. Good on you!

The Bezel

It essentially has the 39mm Oystersteel monobloc middle-case of the OP with a profile that is slightly more curvaceous than the flat, trapezoid profile of the 40mm Oystersteel Submariner. The bezel of the replica Rolex Explorer I is different on each: The OP has a domed, high-polish bezel, while the replica Rolex Explorer I has what Rolex calls a “Smooth” bezel; it is just as nicely polished, but has a flat surface, rather than the convex bezel of the OP. There is no Cerachrom anywhere on the replica Rolex Explorer I, which means you’ll certainly end up with at least some swirls on your steel bezel, but you’re definitely exempt from the fear of cracking your Cerachrom bezel insert. Water-resistance in the Explorer I is a perfectly ample 100 meters, as opposed to the 300-meter rating of the Submariner. As I am sure you have already noticed, this really is going to be a game of trade-offs.

The Movement

The movement inside the replica Rolex Explorer I 214270 is the Rolex Caliber 3132, the same as in the Oyster Perpetual 39. The only main difference I can find between this and the 3130 in the Submariner “No Date” is that the Explorer and OP both have the “high-performance Paraflex shock absorbers,” while, strangely, the Submariner, with its professional diver’s watch pedigree, does not. While they all, like every Rolex watch made today, come with the Superlative Chronometer -2/+2 second daily accuracy rating and 5-year international warranty, the OP, replica Rolex Explorer I and Submariner all have 48 hours of power reserve, much less than the 70+ hour extended power reserve that is present with the new-generation Rolex movements dubbed 32xx. More on this in a bit.


Is the replica Rolex Explorer I 214270 one of the best watches you can buy? Despite all the above reservations,  it definitely is. It has a fantastic case and bracelet and what certainly is one of the highest performing and most durable mechanical movements currently made in Switzerland, or anywhere else.
