About The 2016 Rolex Air-King and Explorer

by Administrator

Rolex Explorer 214270 is very much the same as the outgoing iteration of the same reference with its Oyster Perpetual case at 39 mm, 100-meter water resistance, and in-house caliber 3132. The big changes to this watch versus the original are aesthetic, with a richer application of lume, and wider, longer hands that answer the complaints of many purists who griped about the hands from a 36 mm Explorer on a 39 mm watch.

Rolex Explorer 214270 features the excellent in-house caliber 3132, is now a superlative chronometer, rated to -2/+2 seconds per day. The Explorer features Paraflex shock absorbers as well, which suit the mountain-scaling nature of the design.

Rolex Air-King is back.While the Air-King name was registered in the '40s by Rolex, it is known by most the smaller, entry-level, date-less cousin of the Datejust. Now that role belongs to the various Oyster Perpetuals, and the Air-King is its own man, and though it remains date-less, it is now the big brother to the Explorer (at least physically speaking – it's 40 mm).

Rolex Air-King is anti-magnetic, and the Explorer is not (owing to its magnetic shield, the Air-King is 2 mm thicker). We have a true soft-iron case here in this new Air-King, which we don't have almost anywhere else in the professional Rolex line (save the Milgauss, naturally). What the Explorer has that the Air-King does not are Paraflex shock absorbers, but short of that, the calibers are identical. And in fact, almost everything else is identical between the two watches – from the bracelet to the clasp.
