The last ‘genuine‘ Rolex Submariner as individuals tend to call them, with their aluminum bezel and sleeklugs. Here’s a story Michael did on this Rolex Submariner 14060M watch with 4-liner dial.
Why pickRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand.
Rolex is plainly the most widely knownamongst the world’s luxury watch brand names.
Fundamentallythere are 2 Rolex customergroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowreallylittle.
Other Rolex customersdon’tunderstand much about watches, just that Rolex is the best. For them the primarymotivator is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a huge compliment for the producer— because if even a person who knowsabsolutely nothingabout watches views one particularbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its extremelyhigh product quality extending over the many years of its existence. Rolex watches reveal time properlyand are robust, sturdyand trustworthy.
Preservingconsistently high quality with estimatedannual production varieties of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s benefit to leave outunusualcomplications.
It has no tourbillons, continuouscalendars or minute repeaters– not even motions with a big date display screen, power reserve indicatoror alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and improves the informationongoing. This is true for the movements in addition tofor the case. You will not find a turning bezel that ratchets so cleanly and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end manufacturerswith a lot moreexpensiveproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the truth that the brand namepresentedingeniousfunctionsquite early on which have made the watch well-suited for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf submitted a watchmovement to the renownedKew-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 become a standard for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwatch was presented and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later on– because to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be essentialto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofunctions are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to combine all threefeatures– automaticwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Instantlyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Blue Face.
The everydaywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. Contribute to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf innovation).
Existing collections are preservedand continuallyimproved over the years. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallycautiousmodificationsto the renowneddesign of individualmodel collections over the decadeshave actuallyresulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshaveonly seen incremental modifications for many years.
There are no unexpectedstyle shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are changedjustveryslowly. Normaldesignfunctions like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet belong toseveralvariousdesigns and haveseldomgone throughmodification so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks quitelike earlier models. It’s why it is constantlyeasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a range.
EnjoyprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not just the expertswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
This reality is real to a lower degreefor watches– other than for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster models and the sophisticatedgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or maybe even more, than the original purchase rate.
