The 3rdgreen Rolex Submariner recommendation: 126610LV. A worthwhilefollower of the green Submariner 16610LV (The Kermit), that was reallypresented to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner.
It is somewhatincrediblethat the Submariners get more reads than the Daytona on Fratello.

Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand name.
Rolex is clearly the most well-knownamongst the world’s luxury watch brand names.
Basicallythere are 2 Rolex customergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who knowextremelylittle.
Other Rolex consumersdo notknow much about watches, just 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 huge compliment for the producer— since if even a person who understandsabsolutely nothingabout watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the companyis doing something.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh product quality extending over the many years of its presence. Rolex watches showtime accuratelyand are robust, strongand trusted.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationcontinuous. This is true for the motions as well asfor the case. You won’t find a turning bezel that ratchets so cleanly and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end makerswith a lot morecostlyproducts.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the truth that the brand nameintroducedinnovativefunctionsquite early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmovement to the popularKew-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 internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwristwatch was presented and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a number of years later on– because to ensurethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be necessaryto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2features are shown in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to combine all threefeatures– automatedwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the basics.
Instantlyidentifiabledesign, Rolex Deepsea.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallymindfulmodificationsto the renowneddesign of privatemodel collections over the decadeshave resulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex designshaveonly seen incremental changes over the years.
It’s why it is constantlyeasy to recognize a Rolex from a range. SeespecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the expertswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
The moment you buy a cars and truck, it drops in value by half. This truth is true to a lowerdegree for watches– except for Rolex.
For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel a minimum of (though this is a stickier scenariofor gold Oyster designs and the stylishgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or maybe even more, than the originalpurchase cost. This is an attractive point for any consumer— despite whether they are purchasing the watch forthis specificreason or any other. It’s reassuring to understand you’ve made a smartdecision.
