Over the past year, we have talked too much about Rolex Daytona and the Water Ghost. I also bought Daytona and Water Ghost before, but to be realistic, when I bought Daytona and Water Ghost, I also had a ‘speculation’ mentality. After all, many players who bought Daytona and Ghosts ‘earned ‘. In fact, of the various Rolexes, the longest I’ve ever worn by myself is Tanyi, which I’ve worn for several years. So in this period when Di and Ghost are hot, I want to talk about explorers, Tanyi and Tanji.
Rolex Detective 214270
Compared to Rolex Daytona and Water Ghost, a closer look is a relatively ‘niche’ watch in sports. Although the price of Rolex has risen across the board in the past two years, compared with hot-selling models such as Gangdi, Water Ghost, Red and Blue Circle, Blue and Black Circle, and Blue Disk Skywalker, a closer look has shown that although the market has also risen, it belongs to the market. Relatively ‘rational’ sports labor can even have discounts. Cost-effective in Sports Lowry.
Rolex Detective II 216570
A closer look is also a very ‘background’ watch in Rolex.
Each Rolex sports watch (professional watch) has a professional direction. Don’t do everything, just do your own job. For example, Daytona is a professional chronometer, water ghost is a professional diving watch, lightning bolt is a professional antimagnetic watch, and Greenwich is a professional GMT timepiece. Rolex Explorer’s professional direction is exploration, such as climbing mountains and entering caves. Rolex explores the history of watches that are related to mountain climbing.
Climbing Everest in 1953, paying attention to the watch worn by the climber’s wrist, is the predecessor of Rolex Tanyi.
The origin of Tanyi is that in 1953, climbers Hillary and Norge ascended Mount Everest, which was the first time for humans to climb Mount Everest. During the climbing of Mount Everest, the mountaineering team wore a watch provided by Rolex. This watch was the predecessor of the Rolex Explorer series. Thus, the Rolex Explorer was explored. Watch on Everest. The origin of the second exploration is that in 1971, climbers were preparing to climb the New Guinea Snow Mountain (now Indonesia), and Rolex provided the Explorer II watch for climbers. At that time Rolex provided 1655, the first generation of Tanji.
This mountain is the New Guinea Snow Mountain climbed by the first generation of Rolex.
Let’s take a look at the current situation of probe one and probe two.
Explore one of the most minimalist Rolex sports watches. No extra features, no calendar. Only the hour hand, minute, second hand, the most basic time function. Considering that the first watch is a professional watch developed from mountain climbing, mountain climbing does not require any functions. As long as it is sturdy and durable, it is luminous and easy to read. Exploring the 3, 6, and 9 time scales on a plate is the biggest feature of exploring. At present, there are two main types of circulation in the market, one is new, and the other is old. Please note that no matter the new and old models, the 39mm probe number is 214270. When Rolex launched the new probe number, it did not change the number. So the most important thing is to distinguish between old and new models. The method of distinguishing old and new is very simple. There are two differences between old and new.
The old Rolex Tanyi 214270 (top) and the new Rolex Tanyi 214270 (bottom), note the difference between 369 and pointer.
The 3, 6, and 9 time scales of the new 1.39 mm probe 1 are luminous characters with luminous characters; the 3, 6, and 9 time scales of the 39 mm old probe 1 are metal characters, no luminous.
2. The 39mm hour and minute hands of the new 39mm probe are larger and thicker, and the length of the minute hand is longer; the 39mm old probes are shorter and thinner, and the minute hand is shorter.
The reason why the 39mm probe 214270 has two new and old models is that the previous generation of the probe 270 was 36mm. After upgrading to 39mm 214270, the case size was only increased to 39 at the beginning. No pointer change. Later, I found that the ratio was not particularly good, and I changed the pointer to a longer and thicker one. Now the specialty stores are selling the new fat needle and luminous 369, but there are many old fine needle metal 369 on the secondary market. You should pay attention to the distinction.

Although they are all explorers, Rolex Tanji and Tanyi are very different. The Rolex has two functions, a calendar, a 24-hour number on the bezel, and a shoulder guard on the crown. This is because, in the 1970s, Rolex did not think that the function of the first probe was perfect, so it launched the second probe to improve the configuration of the watch.
When Rolex Tanji added two places, the main purpose was to distinguish between day and dark in this cave.
First, when the two places are added, the purpose is to allow the explorer to identify the correct time (such as 10pm or 10am) in places where caves, polar days, and nights cannot be distinguished from day to night. Calendar and crown shoulders have also been added. At present, there are two kinds of probes in circulation on the market. A new style, an old style. You need to pay attention to the distinction. The new probe number 216570, the old probe number 16570. There are several obvious differences in the appearance of the watch depending on the number.
The old Rolex Tan Er 16570 (top) and the new Rolex Tan Er 216570 (bottom), pay attention to the difference in pointers.
1. The new Detective 216570 is 42 mm and has a large size; the old Detective 16570 is 40 mm and has a small size.
2. The two pointers of the new Tanji 216570 are huge “orange” arrow pointers; the two pointers of the old Tanji 16570 are small “red” pointers.
3. The hour and minute hands of the new Tanji 216570 are relatively thick “fat needles”; the hour and minute hands of the old Tanji 16570 are relatively thin “thin needles”.
The Rolex store is now selling the new Tanji 216570, while in the secondary market there are many old Tanji 16570s in circulation. Please pay attention to the distinction. There is one more detail that needs to be paid attention to the second probe, because the bezel of the second probe is a steel ring plus printed numbers, it should be protected to prevent it from abrading the bezel or the numbers.

The public price of Probe 1 is 51100, and the public price of Probe 2 is 64200. In the steel watches of mainstream luxury brands, the public price of exploring the second belongs to the middle position, the normal price. However, in Rolex, the actual price-performance ratio is very prominent. At this time, Rolex’s market has risen, and popular sports represented by Gangdi and Water Ghost have become more popular than public prices or tying. As a sports worker, exploring and exploring not only does not have a super public price, but also discounts in some places. A while ago, a friend bought a visit, and in his city, there was a 10% discount on the counter. The actual price of the visit was very good. Compared with other sports, it was cost-effective.
Rolex’s Detective II 216570 is sharp and luminous.
At the same time, you can notice that Rolex is a ‘no class’. Explore the second, from the birth to the present, are steel watches, no precious metal. For example, the water ghost, which is also a professional sports watch, has steel, some gold, and all gold, and its level has gradually increased. If you have more money, you can buy all-gold, and if you have less money, you can buy steel, making a difference. And look into it because it has always been a steel watch, it will not make a difference.
