Here’s a story Michael did on this Rolex Submariner 14060M watch with 4-liner dial.
Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand.
Rolex is plainlythe most popularamong the world’s luxury watch brand names. You’ve become aware of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or perhapsPatek Philippe.
Essentiallythere are two Rolex customergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandextremelylittle. Aficionadosbuy Rolex for its extremelyhigh quality.
They might be less interested inverygreat, complicatedworkmanshipin favor of having the very best all-around expectday-to-daywear.
Other Rolex consumersdo notunderstand much about watches, only that Rolex is the very best. For them the mainincentive is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a huge compliment for the maker— because if even an individual who understandsnothingabout watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the companyis doing something.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its extremelyhigh product quality extending over the numerous years of its existence. Rolex watches showtime properlyand are robust, durableand trusted.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationcontinuous. This is true for the movements in addition tofor 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 morecostlyproducts.
It’s got everything a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the truth that the brand nameintroducedingeniousfunctionsrather early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmotion to the distinguishedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlyperformed by the Swiss institute COSC) has ended up being a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwristwatch was introduced and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later on– 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 twofunctions are shown in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all threefeatures– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the essentials.
Instantlyrecognizabledesign, Rolex Harrods.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language internetportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelymindfulmodificationsto the iconicdesign of individualmodel collections over the decadeshave resulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex modelshave actuallyjust seen incremental modifications over the years.
There are no abruptdesign shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are modifiedonlyreallygradually. Typicalstylefeatures like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet belong tonumerousvariousmodels and havehardly evergone throughmodification so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks very muchlike earlier designs. It’s why it is constantlyeasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance.
ViewexpertGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not simply the specialistswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
This fact is true to a lower degreefor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier circumstancefor gold Oyster designs and the classygold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or possibly even more, than the original purchase rate.
