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

It is ratherremarkablethat the Submariners receive more checks out than the Daytona on Fratello. Howeverpossibly some peoplejust have given up on the brands‘ chronograph that is just unobtainable.Unless you are willingto spend as much for this steel renownedwatch as a mid-size householdcar.

The Submariner 14060 is still hot! This stoppedmodel is popular and rates are ever-increasing. The last ‘genuine‘ Rolex Submariner as people tend to call them, with their aluminum bezel and smoothlugs.
Here’s a story Michael did on this Rolex Submariner 14060M watch with 4-liner dial.
Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand name.
Rolex is plainly the most widely knownamong the world’s high-end watch brands.
Fundamentallythere are two Rolex clientgroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandextremelylittle.
Other Rolex customersdon’tunderstand much about watches, only that Rolex is the best. For them the primaryincentive is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a hugecompliment for the producer— due to the fact that if even an individual who knows nothing about watches views one particularbrand as “Number One”, the companyis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh product quality extending over the many years of its presence. Rolex watches revealtime accuratelyand are robust, sturdyand reliable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailongoing. This is true for the movements along withfor the case. You will not discover a turning bezel that ratchets so easily and efficiently like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end manufacturerswith a lot morepriceyitems.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the fact that the brand nameintroducedinnovativefunctionsquite early on which have made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf submitted a wristwatchmovement to the prominentKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlycarried out by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually become a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwatch was presented and the automatedwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later on– due to the fact that to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be neededto pull the crown every day.
The 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– automaticwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the essentials.
Immediatelyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Gmt Master Ii Pepsi.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallymindfuladjustmentsto the iconicstyle of privatemodel collections over the decadeshave resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshave actuallyonly seen incremental changes over the years.
There are no unexpectedstyle shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are modifiedonlyveryslowly. Typicalstylefeatures like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet are part ofa number ofdifferentdesigns and haverarelygone throughmodification so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks quitelike earlier designs. It’s why it is alwayssimple to recognize a Rolex from a distance.
SeeexpertGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not just the professionalswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
The moment you purchase a cars and truck, it drops in value by half. This fact is true to a lowerextent for watches– except for Rolex.
For the high-demand sport models in stainless-steel at least (though this is a stickier scenariofor gold Oyster models and the classygold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or perhaps even more, than the initialpurchase rate. This is an appealing point for any consumer— despite whether they are purchasing the watch forthis particularreason or any other. It’s assuring to understand you’ve made a wisedecision.
