The last ‘genuine‘ Rolex Submariner as individuals tend to call them, with their aluminum bezel and sleeklugs. Here’s a story Michael did on this Rolex Submariner 14060M watch with 4-liner dial.
Why pickRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand.
Rolex is plainly the most widely knownamong the world’s luxury watch brands.
Basicallythere are two Rolex clientgroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandextremelylittle.
Other Rolex clientsdon’tknow much about watches, just that Rolex is the very 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 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.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh item quality extending over the lots of years of its existence. Rolex watches revealtime properlyand are robust, toughand dependable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailongoing. This holds true for the movements in addition tofor the case. You will not find a rotating bezel that ratchets so cleanly and efficiently like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end makerswith far morepriceyproducts.
It’s got everything a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the truth that the brand namepresentedinnovativefeaturesrather early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmotion to the prominentKew-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 ended up being a requirement for internal mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the very first waterproofwristwatch was presented and the automatedwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later on– since to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be necessaryto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2functions are reflected in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the very first watch to integrate all threefeatures– automaticwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the basics.

The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verymindfuladjustmentsto the renownedstyle of specificmodel collections over the yearshave actually resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshavejust seen incremental modifications for many years.
There are no abruptdesign shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are changedjustveryslowly. Typicaldesignfeatures like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet become part ofa number ofdifferentdesigns and haveseldomundergonechange so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks quitelike earlier designs. It’s why it is alwayssimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a range.
ViewprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not just the expertswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its value.
This truth is real 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 circumstancefor gold Oyster designs and the stylishgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or possibly even more, than the original purchase price.
