In 2015 Rolex introduced its brand-new Submariner collection and the world went mad. The new Submariner 41mm is somewhat larger than the previous model, had a bigger lug size, however thinner lugs that mayadvise a bit more of the non-ceramic Submariner models.

Butmaybe some peoplesimply have actually quit on the brand names‘ chronograph that is just unobtainable.Unless you wantto spend as much for this steel renownedwatch as a mid-size householdcar.

Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is plainlythe most well-knownamong the world’s high-end watch brand names. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never ever heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or evenPatek Philippe.
Fundamentallythere are two Rolex customergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who knowreallylittle. Fanaticspurchase Rolex for its veryhigh quality.
They might be less interested inincrediblygreat, complicatedcraftsmanshipin favor of having the very best well-rounded expecteverydaywear.
Other Rolex customersdon’tknow much about watches, only that Rolex is the very best. For them the mainincentive is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a bigcompliment for the maker— since if even an individual who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh product quality extending over the numerous years of its presence. Rolex watches revealtime preciselyand are robust, sturdyand reputable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationongoing. This holds true for the movements in addition tofor the case. You won’t find a rotating bezel that ratchets so easily and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end manufacturerswith far moreexpensiveitems.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the reality that the brandpresentedingeniousfeaturesquite early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf submitted a wristwatchmovement to the distinguishedKew-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 become a requirement for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later on– due to the fact that to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be essentialto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofeatures are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the very first watch to integrate all 3functions– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the basics.
Immediatelyidentifiablestyle, Rolex Datejust.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verymindfuladjustmentsto the renowneddesign of specificdesign collections over the decadeshave resulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex designshave actuallyjust seen incremental modifications throughout the years.
It’s why it is alwayseasy to recognize a Rolex from a range. WatchprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not simply the professionalswho recognizethem.
Keeps its value.
This fact is true to a lesser degreefor watches– other than for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster models and the classygold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or perhaps even more, than the initial purchase price.
