The Rolex Explorer I 214270 was named the conquering of Mount Everest in 1953 by Sir Edmund Hillary in Sir John Hunt’s famous expedition, along with his partner, Tibetan Tenzing Norgay. They both wore an Oyster Perpetual to the summit of the highest point on the planet. Consequently, Rolex produced and launched the iconic Oyster Perpetual Explorer, commemorating the conquest of Everest.
