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

Rolex Explorer 36mm
The Explorer was always a bit ofa Rolex for those who understand. And possibly it still is, however it did get remarkabletraction on our website when Rolex introduced the new 36mm editions in steel and in bi-color.

The Submariner 14060 is still hot! This stoppeddesign is in-demand and costs are ever-increasing. The last ‘genuine‘ Rolex Submariner as individuals tend to call them, with their aluminum bezel and streamlinedlugs.
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 clearly the most popularamong the world’s luxury watch brands.
Essentiallythere are two Rolex clientgroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandreallylittle.
Other Rolex clientsdon’tknow much about watches, only that Rolex is the very best. For them the mainmotivator 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 manufacturer— because if even an individual who understandsnothingabout watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its exceptionallyhigh product quality crossing the many years of its existence. Rolex watches reveal time accuratelyand are robust, strongand reliable.
Keepingregularly high quality with projectedannual production numbers of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s benefit to leave outuncommonproblems.
It has no tourbillons, perpetualcalendars or minute repeaters– not even motions with a big date display screen, power reserve signor alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the detailongoing. This holds true for the motions as well asfor the case. You won’t find a rotating bezel that ratchets so easily and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end producerswith a lot moreexpensiveitems.
It’s got everything a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the reality that the brandpresentedingeniousfeaturesquite early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf submitted a wristwatchmovement to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlyconducted by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually become a standard for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwatch was presented and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a number of years later– because to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be neededto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2features are shown in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all 3features– automaticwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the essentials.
Quicklyidentifiabledesign, Rolex Iced Out.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. Add to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf innovation).
Existing collections are keptand continuouslyenhanced throughout the years. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verymindfulmodificationsto the iconicstyle of specificmodel collections over the yearshaveled to a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex modelshavejust seen incremental changes for many years.
There are no suddendesign shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are modifiedjustextremelyslowly. Commondesignfeatures like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet belong toseveralvariousmodels and have actuallyseldomundergonemodification so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks very muchlike earlier designs. It’s why it is alwayseasy to recognize a Rolex from a distance.
WatchspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the specialistswho recognizethem.
Keeps its value.
This fact is true to a lesser extentfor watches– other than for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster models and the stylishgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or possibly even more, than the initial purchase cost.
