Pre-Owned Used Rolex Explorer Watch

Launched in 1953 in honor of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay’s successful ascent of Mount Everest, the Rolex Explorer is not only one of the brand’s oldest sports watch models but also one of the most understated. The Rolex Explorer features a water-resistant case, smooth bezel, time-only black dial, and three-link Oyster bracelet. The defining feature of the Explorer is a black dial with a trio of Arabic numerals at 3, 6, and 9.

As its name suggests, the Explorer was developed as a Rolex watch for explorers and adventurers. Current versions look remarkably similar to vintage and pre-owned used Rolex Explorer watches, which illustrates the enduring appeal of this iconic timepiece. The popularity of secondhand Explorer watches has exploded in the pre-owned Rolex market over the last decade or so, with no signs of slowing down.

Buying and Selling Pre-Owned Used Rolex Explorer Watches

For most of its history, the Rolex Explorer watch for men was exclusively available in stainless steel. However, Rolex recently added a two-tone Explorer variant to its lineup. What’s more, the vast majority of used Rolex Explorer watches have 36mm cases; the only exception is the now-discontinued Explorer reference 214270 with a 39mm case.
