Last year Rolex presented its new Submariner collection and the world went mad. The brand-new Submariner 41mm is slightly larger than the previous model, had a larger lug size, however thinner lugs that mayremind a bit more of the non-ceramic Submariner designs.

Why pickRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand.
Rolex is clearly the most popularamong the world’s luxury watch brand names.
Fundamentallythere are two Rolex clientgroups– those who understand a lot, and those who knowreallylittle.
Other Rolex customersdon’tunderstand much about watches, only 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 maker— due to the fact that if even an individual who understandsabsolutely nothingabout watches views one particularbrand as “Number One”, the companyis doing something.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its exceptionallyhigh product quality extending over the many years of its presence. Rolex watches revealtime accuratelyand are robust, durableand trusted.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailcontinuous. This holds true for the movements in addition tofor the case. You will not 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 producerswith a lot morecostlyitems.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the fact that the brandpresentedinnovativefeaturesquite early on which have actually made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf submitted a wristwatchmovement to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
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 internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwristwatch was introduced and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later on– because to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be neededto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofeatures are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all 3features– automaticwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Instantlyrecognizablestyle, Rolex King Midas.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. Add to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf innovation).
Existing collections are maintainedand continuallyimproved for many years. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallycautiousmodificationsto the iconicdesign of individualdesign collections over the yearshaveled to a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshave actuallyonly seen incremental modifications throughout the years.
It’s why it is alwayssimple to recognize a Rolex from a distance. WatchspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the professionalswho recognizethem.
Keeps its value.
The minute you purchase an automobile, it drops in value by half. This truth is true to a lowerextent for 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 perhaps even more, than the originalpurchase cost. This is an appealing point for any client— no matter whether they are purchasing the expectthis particularfactor or any other. It’s reassuring to understand you’ve made a smartdecision.
