Rolex Submariner 41mm
Last year Rolex introduced its new Submariner collection and the world went mad. The brand-new Submariner 41mm is slightly larger than the previous model, had a bigger lug size, but thinner lugs that mightremind a bit more of the non-ceramic Submariner designs.

Why pickRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is clearlythe most widely knownamongst the world’s luxury watch brand names. You’ve become aware of it even if you’ve never ever heard anything about Omega or Breitling, and evenPatek Philippe.
Essentiallythere are 2 Rolex consumergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandverylittle. Aficionadospurchase Rolex for its extremelyhigh quality.
They may be less interested inverygreat, complexworkmanshipin favor of having the very best well-rounded expectdailywear.
Other Rolex consumersdon’tunderstand much about watches, only that Rolex is the very best. For them the primarymotivator is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a hugecompliment for the manufacturer— due to the fact that if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one particularbrand as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh item quality extending over the numerous years of its presence. Rolex watches showtime preciselyand are robust, toughand trusted.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and improves the detailcontinuous. This is true for the movements as well asfor the case. You won’t discover a rotating bezel that ratchets so easily and efficiently like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end producerswith much moreexpensiveitems.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the fact that the brand nameintroducedinnovativefeaturesrather early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf submitted a watchmovement to the prominentKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlyconducted by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually ended up being a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first water-resistantwristwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later– because to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be neededto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2functions are shown in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the first watch to combine all threefunctions– automaticwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the essentials.
Quicklyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Ayo Teo.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. Add to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf creation).
Existing collections are keptand continuallyimproved over the years. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verycautiousadjustmentsto the renownedstyle of privatedesign collections over the decadeshave actuallyresulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex modelshaveonly seen incremental changes throughout the years.
It’s why it is constantlysimple to recognize a Rolex from a range. WatchspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the specialistswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
This fact is true to a lesser extentfor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster designs and the sophisticatedgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or possibly even more, than the initial purchase rate.
