Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

Sticking my head out in risk off getting flamed.... 🙂

 

i am in search of an Explorer I or II .. haven't decided yet.... the Explorer I is very well made from BP factory.... But what about the Explorer II? is it the same here.... Does BP make one of the best or?

 

What are your thoughts?

Get us some links to the watches you're looking at and don't hesitate to be more specific- there's a number of models which are Explorer IIs- 1655, 16550, 16570 and even the newer ones- 216570.

Same with Explorer Is- 1016, 14270, etc.

Sorry you are absolutely right.

 

These two are in my sights, Both from BP-factory:

 

216570.  https://www.pf-868.com/makers/bp-products/0-0-0-0-0-rlex00017-bp-216570-chs-explorer-ii-ss-ss-black-sa-3187.html

214270. https://www.pf-868.com/0rlex00031-explorer-1-uv-214270-ss-black-sa-3132.html

 

my question is basically:  what are your thoughts on these two? .... are these the best versions out there at the moment or am I overlooking a factory who has a better version?

Back in the old days a CHS- correct hand-stack- movement was a risky proposition- you just didn't know when it would fail. I don't know if they've gotten any better.

This movement has the ICHS- in-correct hand stack- and is probably a little less risky movement wise- but the hand-stack is not right- but will anyone notice?

The 214270 has the SA3132- it would be better with the a2824-2 movement. But the decision is yours. Good luck!
