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 design, had a bigger lug size, however thinner lugs that mayadvise a bit more of the non-ceramic Submariner models.

Rolex Submariner 126610LV
The 3rd green Rolex Submariner reference: 126610LV. This 41mm edition is the followerof “The Hulk” which was presented in 2010.
A deservingfollower of the green Submariner 16610LV (The Kermit), that was in factintroduced to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner. In this post, have all 3 editions side-by-side.
It is ratheramazingthat the Submariners get more reads than the Daytona on Fratello. Howeverperhaps some peoplejust have actually given up on the brands‘ chronograph that is simply unobtainable.Unless you are willingto invest as much for this steel iconicwatch as a mid-size householdautomobile. We have a few Daytona owners in our group, but I onlysee Ben using his quiteregularly.
His personalstory on the Daytona can be checked out here.
Rolex Explorer 36mm
The Explorer was always a little bit ofa Rolex for those who understand. And possibly it still is, however it did get incredibletraction on our site when Rolex presented the new 36mm editions in steel and in bi-color.

Rolex Datejust Rolex Datejust 36
Over the years, this summaryof the top 10 Rolex watches changedfrom having not a single Datejust in there to an increasing position every year. This year, Rolex presentedbrand-new dial variations for the renowned date watch.
Rolex GMT-Master II ‘Pepsi’
A Rolex GMT-Master II is hot, and perhapshotter than it ever was in the past. We did an introduction of all Rolex GMT-Master watches in this post, from the really first referenceto today’s offered models.
After a short while of being onlyin the catalog (I won’twrite “offered“) with a jubilee bracelet, the Oyster bracelet is back. There wasn’t much hassleabout it when Rolex did its newintros, but it was gotten by the fans rather quickly.
We covered the comebackhere.

Rolex Submariner 14060.
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 recognizablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is plainlythe most widely knownamongst the world’s high-end watch brand names. You’ve become aware of it even if you’ve never ever heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or perhapsPatek Philippe.
Basicallythere are two Rolex consumergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandextremelylittle. Enthusiastsbuy Rolex for its incrediblyhigh quality.
They may be less thinking aboutexceptionallygreat, complicatedworkmanshipin favor of having the very best well-rounded expecteverydaywear.
Other Rolex consumersdo notknow 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 bigcompliment for the producer— since if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something right.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its extremelyhigh product quality extending over the many years of its presence. Rolex watches revealtime properlyand are robust, toughand reliable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the informationcontinuous. This holds true for the movements in addition tofor the case. You won’t discover a rotating 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 moreexpensiveitems.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the truth that the brand nameintroducedingeniousfunctionsrather early on which have actually made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmovement to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlyconducted by the Swiss institute COSC) has become a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first waterproofwristwatch was presented and the automatedwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later– due to the fact that to ensurethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be requiredto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2features are reflected in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the very first watch to combine all threefeatures– automaticwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the essentials.
Instantlyrecognizablestyle, Rolex James Cameron.
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 webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallycarefuladjustmentsto the renowneddesign of individualmodel collections over the decadeshave actually resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshave actuallyonly seen incremental changes over the years.
It’s why it is constantlysimple to recognize a Rolex from a distance. ViewprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the professionalswho recognizethem.
Keeps its value.
This fact is true to a lesser extentfor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier circumstancefor gold Oyster models and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or perhaps even more, than the initial purchase price.
