Rolex Submariner 41mm
In 2015 Rolex presented 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, but thinner lugs that mightremind a bit more of the non-ceramic Submariner designs.

Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand name.
Rolex is clearly the most popularamong the world’s high-end watch brands.
Basicallythere are 2 Rolex clientgroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandreallylittle.
Other Rolex clientsdon’tknow much about watches, just that Rolex is the very best. For them the mainincentive is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a huge compliment for the maker— because if even an individual who understandsabsolutely 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 item quality extending over the lots of years of its presence. Rolex watches showtime properlyand are robust, durableand reliable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailongoing. This holds true for the motions as well asfor the case. You will not find a rotating 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 much morepriceyitems.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the truth that the brand nameintroducedingeniousfeaturesrather early on which have made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmotion to the renownedKew-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 become a requirement for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwristwatch was presented and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a number of years later on– since to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be necessaryto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofeatures are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the very first watch to combine all threefeatures– automatedwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Quicklyidentifiablestyle, Rolex Explorer Ii.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language webwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallycarefuladjustmentsto the iconicdesign of individualdesign collections over the yearshave resulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex modelshave actuallyjust seen incremental changes for many years.
It’s why it is alwayseasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance. ViewspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not simply the specialistswho recognizethem.
Keeps its value.
The minute you purchase a cars and truck, it drops in worth by half. This truth is true to a lowerlevel for watches– except for Rolex.
For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel a minimum of (though this is a stickier circumstancefor gold Oyster models and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or maybe even more, than the originalpurchase rate. This is an appealing point for any customer— regardless of whether they are buying the expectthis specificreason or any other. It’s reassuring to know you’ve made a smartchoice. Rolex Explorer Ii.
