The Top 5 Rolex Watches for Men

The Rolex Explorer

If you prefer a sports watch with a minimalistic yet functional approach, the Rolex Explorer might be the perfect watch for your collection.  The case features a smooth bezel, as opposed to a rotating bezel topped with units, and a time-only dial.  Newer models, such as the ref. 214270 also boast an upgraded case size of 39mm, allowing it to wear more like a dress watch while offering many of the features of a sports watch that avid collectors seek.  The ref. 214270 also boasts an impressive list of upgrades, including a Chromalight display that emits a bright blue glow while in the dark, an upgraded stainless steel finish patented by Rolex as Oystersteel, and a chronometer-rated calibre 3132 perpetual movement.

The Explorer 214270 was released in 2010 and then again in 2016 with upgraded hands on the dial.  Both variations can be found new and on the secondary market with later-model dials among the most desirable.
