Rolex Submariner 41mm
In 2015 Rolex presented its new Submariner collection and the world freaked. The brand-new Submariner 41mm is a little larger than the previous model, had a bigger lug size, however thinner lugs that mightremind a bit more of the non-ceramic Submariner designs.

Rolex Submariner 126610LV
The 3rdgreen Rolex Submariner recommendation: 126610LV. A worthysuccessor of the green Submariner 16610LV (The Kermit), that was actuallyintroduced to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner.
It is somewhatamazingthat the Submariners receive more reads than the Daytona on Fratello.
Maybe some peoplesimply haveprovided up on the brand names‘ chronograph that is simply unobtainable.Unless you wantto spend as much for this steel renownedwatch as a mid-size householdautomobile. We have a couple of Daytona owners in our group, but I onlysee Ben wearing his quiteregularly.
His individualstory on the Daytona can be checked out here.
Rolex Explorer 36mm
The Explorer was always a bit ofa Rolex for those who understand. And maybe it still is, but it did get amazingtraction on our site when Rolex introduced the new 36mm editions in steel and in bi-color.

Rolex GMT-Master II ‘Pepsi’
A Rolex GMT-Master II is hot, and perhapshotter than it ever was in the past. We did an overview of all Rolex GMT-Master watches in this post, from the really first recommendationto today’s readily available designs.
After an instant of being justin the catalog (I will notwrite “offered“) with a jubilee bracelet, the Oyster bracelet is back. There wasn’t much difficultyabout it when Rolex did its newintros, but it was picked up by the fans rather rapidly.

Rolex Submariner 14060.
The last ‘genuine‘ Rolex Submariner as people tend to call them, with their aluminum bezel and sleeklugs. Here’s a story Michael did on this Rolex Submariner 14060M watch with 4-liner dial.
Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand.
Rolex is plainlythe most widely knownamong the world’s luxury watch brand names. You’ve become aware of it even if you’ve never ever heard anything about Omega or Breitling, and evenPatek Philippe.
Basicallythere are 2 Rolex clientgroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowextremelylittle. Aficionadospurchase Rolex for its extremelyhigh quality.
They might be less interested inextremelygreat, complexcraftsmanshipin favor of having the very best well-rounded expectday-to-daywear.
Other Rolex clientsdon’tunderstand much about watches, only that Rolex is the very best. For them the primarymotivator 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 manufacturer— due to the fact that if even a person who understandsabsolutely nothingabout watches views one particularbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh product quality extending over the lots of years of its presence. Rolex watches showtime properlyand are robust, sturdyand dependable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and improves the detailongoing. This holds true for the movements along withfor 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 producerswith far morepriceyproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the fact that the brandintroducedingeniousfunctionsquite early on which have actually made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmovement to the distinguishedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlycarried out by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually become a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first water-resistantwristwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a number of years later on– due to the fact that to ensurethe 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 product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all 3features– automaticwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the fundamentals.

The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. Contribute to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf development).
Existing collections are keptand continuallyimproved for many years. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verycautiousadjustmentsto the renownedstyle of privatedesign collections over the yearshave actuallyled to a high degree of recognition.”.

It’s why it is alwayssimple to recognize a Rolex from a distance. ViewprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the specialistswho recognizethem.
Keeps its value.
The minute you purchase a vehicle, it drops in worth by half. This truth is true to a lowerlevel for watches– except for Rolex.
For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster designs and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or perhaps even more, than the originalpurchase rate. This is an appealing point for any consumer— despite whether they are buying the watch forthis specificreason or any other. It’s reassuring to know you’ve made a smartchoice. Rolex Gmt 2.
