  • Product Notes

    Towards the end of the 1980s Rolex introduced the next generation Explorer. The reference 14720 was a very different watch, but as per the Rolex way, the core DNA was still present. The acrylic crystal was replaced with a scratch-resistant sapphire glass, which gave the watch a more ‘modern’ feel on the wrist. The dial, whilst maintaining the iconic 3-6-9 layout replaced the painted numerals with white gold numbers that were filled with luminous material; initially tritium and then in the late 1990s Rolex moved to using luminova for their lume. The watch was powered by the caliber 3000.
