Rolex Submariner 41mm
Last year Rolex presented its brand-new Submariner collection and the world went mad. The new Submariner 41mm is a little larger than the previous model, had a larger lug size, however thinner lugs that mayremind a bit more of the non-ceramic Submariner designs.

The 3rdgreen Rolex Submariner referral: 126610LV. A deservingfollower of the green Submariner 16610LV (The Kermit), that was reallypresented to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner.

Rolex Submariner 14060.
The last ‘real‘ Rolex Submariner as people 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 recognizablehigh-endbrand name.
Rolex is clearly the most well-knownamong the world’s high-end watch brand names.
Fundamentallythere are 2 Rolex clientgroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandverylittle.
Other Rolex customersdon’tknow much about watches, only that Rolex is the best. For them the primarymotivator is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a hugecompliment for the maker— due to the fact that if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one particularbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh item quality extending over the many years of its existence. Rolex watches show time accuratelyand are robust, strongand dependable.
Maintainingconsistently high quality with approximatedannual production numbers of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s advantage to omitunusualproblems.
It has no tourbillons, continuouscalendars or minute repeaters– not even movements with a big date display screen, power reserve indicationor alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the detailcontinuous. This holds true for the motions as well asfor the case. You will not find a turning 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 makerswith much moreexpensiveproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the truth that the brand nameintroducedinnovativefeaturesquite early on which have actually made the watch appropriate for everyday 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 (currentlycarried out by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually ended up being a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the very first waterproofwatch was introduced and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later on– because to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be essentialto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofeatures are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all threefunctions– automatedwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the basics.
Quicklyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Ipo Allotment.
The everydaywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. Contribute to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf development).
Existing collections are keptand continuouslyimproved throughout the years. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallycautiousmodificationsto the iconicdesign of individualmodel collections over the decadeshaveled to a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex modelshave actuallyjust seen incremental changes over the years.
There are no unexpectedstyle shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are modifiedonlyveryslowly. Commondesignfeatures like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet belong tonumerousvariousmodels and haveseldomundergonechange so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks very muchlike earlier models. It’s why it is constantlyeasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance.
WatchprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not simply the specialistswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its value.
This reality is real to a lower levelfor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier scenariofor gold Oyster designs and the stylishgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or perhaps even more, than the initial purchase price.
