Rolex Submariner 41mm
In 2015 Rolex presented its new Submariner collection and the world freaked. The new Submariner 41mm is slightly larger than the previous design, had a bigger lug size, however thinner lugs that mightremind a bit more of the non-ceramic Submariner models.

Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand name.
Rolex is clearlythe most widely knownamong the world’s luxury watch brands. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or evenPatek Philippe.
Basicallythere are two Rolex consumergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandverylittle. Aficionadosbuy Rolex for its incrediblyhigh quality.
They might be less thinking aboutextremelygreat, complicatedcraftsmanshipin favor of having the best all-around watch fordailywear.
Other Rolex clientsdon’tunderstand much about watches, just that Rolex is the best. For them the mainincentive 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— since if even an individual 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 veryhigh product quality extending over the many years of its existence. Rolex watches showtime properlyand are robust, toughand trusted.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailongoing. This holds true for the movements along withfor the case. You will not find a turning 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 makerswith much moreexpensiveitems.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the truth that the brandintroducedinnovativefeaturesquite early on which have actually made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf submitted 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 become a requirement for internal mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the first water-resistantwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a number of years later– since to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be neededto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2functions are reflected in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to combine all 3functions– automatedwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Immediatelyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Just Date.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language webwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelycautiousmodificationsto the renownedstyle of privatedesign collections over the yearshave actually resulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex modelshavejust seen incremental modifications for many years.
There are no abruptstyle shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are changedonlyextremelygradually. Commondesignfeatures like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet are part ofa number ofvariousdesigns and haveseldomundergonechange so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks quitelike earlier models. It’s why it is constantlyeasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a range.
EnjoyprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the professionalswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
This reality 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 scenariofor gold Oyster designs and the classygold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or perhaps even more, than the original purchase rate.
