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

Rolex Submariner 14060.
The last ‘genuine‘ Rolex Submariner as individuals tend to call them, with their aluminum bezel and streamlinedlugs. Here’s a story Michael did on this Rolex Submariner 14060M watch with 4-liner dial.
Why pickRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand name.
Rolex is clearly the most well-knownamong the world’s luxury watch brand names.
Fundamentallythere are two Rolex consumergroups– those who know a lot, and those who understandverylittle.
Other Rolex clientsdo notunderstand much about watches, only that Rolex is the very best. For them the primaryincentive is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a big compliment for the producer— since if even an individual who understandsabsolutely nothingabout watches views one particularbrand as “Number One”, the companyis doing something.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its extremelyhigh item quality extending over the lots of years of its existence. Rolex watches revealtime accuratelyand are robust, strongand reliable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationcontinuous. This is true for the motions along withfor the case. You will not discover a turning bezel that ratchets so easily and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end manufacturerswith much morepriceyitems.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the truth that the brandintroducedingeniousfunctionsrather early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmovement to the popularKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlyperformed by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually ended up being a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwristwatch was presented and the automatedwinding mechanismfollowed a number of years later– because to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be requiredto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofeatures are shown in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the first watch to combine all threefunctions– automaticwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the essentials.
Quicklyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Explorer 1.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verycautiousadjustmentsto the iconicdesign of privatedesign collections over the decadeshave actually resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshaveonly seen incremental modifications over the years.
There are no suddendesign shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are changedjustveryslowly. Commondesignfunctions like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet belong tonumerousvariousdesigns and have actuallyhardly everundergonechange so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks very muchlike earlier designs. It’s why it is alwayssimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a range.
EnjoyprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not simply the specialistswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
The moment you purchase a cars and truck, it drops in value by half. This truth is true to a lowerextent for watches– except for Rolex.
For the high-demand sport models in stainless-steel a minimum of (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster models and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or maybe even more, than the initialpurchase rate. This is an attractive point for any client— regardless of whether they are purchasing the watch forthis specificreason or any other. It’s assuring to understand you’ve made a wisedecision.
