We have a slightchoice for vintagedesigns ourselves, at least many of the Fratello editors, but the modern Rolex watches (if offered) are just HOT.
The Top 10 Rolex watches summarybelow, has been producedutilizing the interest in our Rolex short articles in the previous 12 months.
Rolex Submariner 41mm
Last year Rolex introduced its new Submariner collection and the world freaked. The new Submariner 41mm is somewhat larger than the previous design, had a larger lug size, however thinner lugs that mightadvise a bit more of the non-ceramic Submariner models.
Mike wrote a short article on why he likes the new Submariner seesmore than the 40mm ceramic models in this short article. Rolex Killer.
Rolex Submariner 126610LV
The third green Rolex Submariner referral: 126610LV. This 41mm edition is the successorof “The Hulk” which was presented in 2010.
A worthwhilefollower of the green Submariner 16610LV (The Kermit), that was reallyintroduced to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner. In this short article, have all three editions side-by-side.
It is somewhatamazingthat the Submariners get more checks out than the Daytona on Fratello.
Maybe some individualsjust havegiven up on the brands‘ chronograph that is simply unobtainable.Unless you are willingto spend as much for this steel iconicwatch as a mid-size familyvehicle. We have a couple of Daytona owners in our group, however I onlysee Ben wearing his quiteroutinely.
His personalstory on the Daytona can be read here.
Rolex Explorer 36mm
And maybe it still is, however it did get remarkabletraction on our website when Rolex presented the new 36mm editions in steel and in bi-color. We covered the newRolex Explorer here.
Rolex Datejust Rolex Datejust 36
Over the years, this introductionof the leading 10 Rolex watches alteredfrom having not a single Datejust in there to an increasing position every year. You can’t fail with a Datejust, it is a traditional.
This year, Rolex presentedbrand-new dial variations for the renowned date watch. We wrote about the brand-newdial alternativeshere.
Rolex GMT-Master II ‘Pepsi’
We did a summary of all Rolex GMT-Master watches in this post, from the really first referenceto today’s offered models. There wasn’t much hassleabout it when Rolex did its newintroductions, however it was picked up by the fans rather rapidly.
Rolex Explorer II 226570
The watch that was anticipated! The Rolex Explorer II referral226570 was presentedpreviously this year, as a successor to the referenceRolex Explorer II 216570 that was introduced 10 years back, in 2011. It used to be one of the most underrated Rolex sports watches, but not any longer.

Rolex Submariner 5513
From # 5to # 8 this year. The 5513 is the Rolex with a very long production run, butespeciallythe 5513 in this postperformedreally(extremely!) well in the ins 2015. Rolex Killer.
Rolex Oyster Perpetual 126000
The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual collection is focused on the 41mm 124300, however it alsostimulatedyour interest in the 36mm Oyster Perpetual 126000. This watch is readily available in many differentdial colors and retails at EUR5,300. Rob wrote about the Oyster Perpetual 36 in this post.
Rolex Submariner 14060.
The last ‘genuine‘ 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 chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand name.
Rolex is clearly the most popularamongst the world’s high-end watch brand names.
Essentiallythere are two Rolex consumergroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowverylittle.
Other Rolex customersdon’tunderstand much about watches, just that Rolex is the very best. For them the mainmotivator is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a huge compliment for the manufacturer— since if even a person who knowsabsolutely nothingabout watches views one particularbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its extremelyhigh product quality extending over the lots of years of its existence. Rolex watches showtime properlyand are robust, strongand reputable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailcontinuous. This is true for the motions in addition tofor the case. You will not find a rotating 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 producerswith much morecostlyitems.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the truth that the brandintroducedingeniousfeaturesrather early on which have made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf submitted a watchmovement to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlycarried out by the Swiss institute COSC) has become a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwatch was introduced and the automatedwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later on– because to ensurethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be requiredto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2features are shown in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the very first watch to combine all threefeatures– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Instantlyidentifiablestyle, Rolex Killer.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallymindfuladjustmentsto the iconicstyle of privatedesign collections over the decadeshave resulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex designshave actuallyonly seen incremental modifications for many years.
It’s why it is constantlysimple to recognize a Rolex from a range. WatchspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not just the specialistswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
The minute you purchase a vehicle, it drops in value by half. This truth is true to a lowerlevel for watches– except for Rolex.
For the high-demand sport models in stainless-steel a minimum of (though this is a stickier circumstancefor gold Oyster designs and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or perhaps even more, than the initialpurchase price. This is an appealing point for any consumer— despite whether they are purchasing the look forthis specificreason or any other. It’s assuring to understand you’ve made a smartchoice. Rolex Killer.
