For sale is my Rolex Explorer reference 114270. This is the previous version of the Explorer 1, with a 36mm case. The watch is a D-serial version, which places the manufacture date to approximately 2005. The watch has the upgraded 3130 movement, which features a balance bridge rather than a balance cock (2 anchor points for the balance spring assembly rather than 1) which gives the watch greater shock resistance over the previous caliber 3000. It has white gold markers and numerals, with green lume on the markers. This model was made before Rolex began engraving repeating "Rolex" around the rehaut (inner area of the bezel surrounding the dial) and it therefore has a cleaner, more classic look.

The bracelet is original (serial number dates to the same 2005 manufacture date as the watch) and is in excellent condition with tight links.

The watch was purchased in November 2016 from a respected seller near Atlanta Georgia, where it had recently been cleaned and serviced. The watch has kept excellent time--much better than any of my other Swiss or Japanese automatic watches. In my experience, it has kept to less than +/-5 second deviation per day, depending on the position of the watch (a couple seconds per day faster while resting dial-up, and a couple seconds slower when placed crown-up).

The watch comes with a Rolex hang tag, box, manual and outer box, as shown in the pictures. It did not come with its original papers when I bought it, so those are not included in this sale.

Conservatively graded as TZ Near Mint, as there are some light swirls on the bracelet and case, and some very faint scratches near the lugs from a bracelet/strap change.

Asking $3,850 USD, or $4,800 CAD, plus shipping. Bank wire, cashier's cheque or money orders only please. I prefer a face-to-face transaction near Calgary, Alberta, Canada, but will happily ship anywhere in Canada or the US.

I would also be open to a trade for an IWC Mark XV, +/- cash depending on condition/extras.

I have not sold a watch online before, but will gladly take more pictures, videos or participate in a Skype call with serious buyers if you have concerns. Previous sales documentation can be provided, and I am open to signing a sales contract with functionality/authenticity guarantees.

Thanks!
