Here’s a story Michael did on this Rolex Submariner 14060M watch with 4-liner dial.
Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is clearlythe most well-knownamong the world’s high-end watch brand names. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never ever heard anything about Omega or Breitling, and evenPatek Philippe.
Fundamentallythere are 2 Rolex clientgroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandreallylittle. Connoisseursbuy Rolex for its extremelyhigh quality.
They might be less thinking aboutexceptionallyfine, complexworkmanshipin favor of having the best well-rounded look foreverydaywear.
Other Rolex consumersdo notunderstand much about watches, only that Rolex is the very best. For them the mainincentive is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a huge compliment for the maker— due to the fact that if even a person who knowsnothingabout watches views one particularbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh product quality extending over the numerous years of its existence. Rolex watches revealtime preciselyand are robust, toughand trustworthy.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the informationcontinuous. This is true for the motions in addition tofor the case. You will not discover a rotating bezel that ratchets so cleanly and efficiently like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end manufacturerswith a lot morecostlyitems.
It’s got everything a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the fact that the brand nameintroducedingeniousfeaturesquite early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf submitted a wristwatchmotion to the prominentKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlyperformed by the Swiss institute COSC) has become a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first waterproofwatch was presented and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later– since to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be necessaryto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2features are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all threefunctions– automaticwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the basics.
Immediatelyidentifiabledesign, Rolex Kent.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelycarefuladjustmentsto the renownedstyle of individualdesign collections over the yearshave resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshave actuallyjust seen incremental changes over the years.
It’s why it is alwayseasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance. ViewexpertGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not just the specialistswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
This fact is true to a lower levelfor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster models and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or possibly even more, than the initial purchase cost.
