The Explorer was constantly a little bit ofa Rolex for those who know. And maybe it still is, however it did get remarkabletraction on our site when Rolex introduced the new 36mm editions in steel and in bi-color.

Rolex GMT-Master II ‘Pepsi’
A Rolex GMT-Master II is hot, and possiblyhotter than it ever was previously. We did an overview of all Rolex GMT-Master watches in this post, from the extremely first recommendationto today’s offered models.
After a short while of being onlyin the brochure (I won’tcompose “available“) with a jubilee bracelet, the Oyster bracelet is back. There wasn’t much fussabout it when Rolex did its newintros, but it was picked up by the fans rather rapidly.
We covered the returnhere.

Rolex Submariner 14060.
The last ‘genuine‘ Rolex Submariner as individuals 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 selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand name.
Rolex is clearly the most widely knownamongst the world’s high-end watch brand names.
Basicallythere are two Rolex consumergroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowreallylittle.
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 use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a bigcompliment for the manufacturer— since if even an individual who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the companyis doing something right.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its exceptionallyhigh product quality extending over the numerous years of its presence. Rolex watches revealtime preciselyand are robust, sturdyand reliable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailongoing. This is true for the motions along withfor 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 competitors– even other high-end producerswith much moreexpensiveproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the reality that the brandintroducedinnovativefeaturesquite early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmotion to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlyconducted by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually ended up being a requirement for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first waterproofwatch was presented and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a number of years later on– because to ensurethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be necessaryto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2functions are shown in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to combine all 3functions– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Immediatelyidentifiabledesign, Rolex King.
The everydaywearability of a watch is a function of its style. 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 creation).
Existing collections are maintainedand continuouslyimproved for many years. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelycautiousadjustmentsto the renownedstyle of specificmodel collections over the decadeshave actuallyresulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex designshave actuallyonly seen incremental changes throughout the years.
There are no suddenstyle shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are modifiedonlyverygradually. Commondesignfeatures like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet belong toa number ofdifferentdesigns and have actuallyseldomundergonemodification so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks quitelike earlier models. It’s why it is constantlysimple to recognize a Rolex from a distance.
WatchexpertGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not just the professionalswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
This fact is true to a lesser degreefor watches– other than for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster models and the stylishgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or perhaps even more, than the initial purchase price.
