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 recognizablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is clearlythe most well-knownamongst the world’s high-end watch brands. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or perhapsPatek Philippe.
Basicallythere are 2 Rolex customergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who knowextremelylittle. Connoisseursbuy Rolex for its exceptionallyhigh quality.
They may be less interested inexceptionallyfine, complexworkmanshipin favor of having the very best well-rounded look forday-to-daywear.
Other Rolex customersdo notknow 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 substantialcompliment for the manufacturer— because if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh item quality extending over the numerous years of its presence. Rolex watches revealtime properlyand are robust, strongand reliable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationongoing. This holds true for the movements as well asfor the case. You won’t discover a rotating bezel that ratchets so cleanly and efficiently like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end makerswith a lot moreexpensiveproducts.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the fact that the brandintroducedingeniousfeaturesquite early on which have made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf submitted a watchmotion to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
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 first waterproofwristwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a number of years later– since to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be necessaryto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2functions are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced 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.
Immediatelyrecognizabledesign, Rolex Gmt Root Beer.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. Add to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf development).
Existing collections are maintainedand continuallyenhanced for many years. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallycautiousadjustmentsto the renowneddesign of specificdesign collections over the yearshave actuallyled to a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex modelshavejust seen incremental changes throughout the years.
It’s why it is constantlysimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a range. WatchprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not simply the professionalswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
The moment you buy an automobile, it drops in worth by half. This truth is true to a lesserlevel for watches– except for Rolex.
For the high-demand sport models in stainless-steel a minimum of (though this is a stickier scenariofor gold Oyster models and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or maybe even more, than the originalpurchase price. This is an appealing point for any customer— regardless of whether they are purchasing the look forthis specificfactor or any other. It’s reassuring to know you’ve made a wisechoice.
