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

The last ‘genuine‘ Rolex Submariner as people 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 identifiableluxurybrand.
Rolex is plainly the most popularamong the world’s high-end watch brands.
Fundamentallythere are two Rolex consumergroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowreallylittle.
Other Rolex customersdo notunderstand much about watches, just that Rolex is the best. For them the mainmotivator is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a substantial compliment for the maker— since if even an individual who knowsabsolutely nothingabout watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh item quality extending over the many years of its existence. Rolex watches show time accuratelyand are robust, durableand trustworthy.
Keepingregularly high quality with projectedannual production numbers of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s benefit to leave outuncommonissues.
It has no tourbillons, continuouscalendars or minute repeaters– not even movements with a large date display screen, power reserve indicatoror alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationcontinuous. This is true for the movements as well asfor the case. You won’t find a rotating 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 requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the truth that the brand nameintroducedingeniousfeaturesquite early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmotion to the popularKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlycarried out by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually become a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first waterproofwatch was introduced and the automatedwinding mechanismfollowed a number of years later– 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 twofunctions are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all threefeatures– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the basics.
Immediatelyidentifiabledesign, Rolex Explorer 214270.
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 internetportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallymindfuladjustmentsto the iconicstyle of specificdesign collections over the decadeshave actually resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshave actuallyonly seen incremental changes throughout the years.
It’s why it is constantlyeasy to recognize a Rolex from a range. SeeexpertGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the professionalswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
This truth is true to a lesser levelfor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster models and the stylishgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or maybe even more, than the initial purchase cost.
