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

The thirdgreen Rolex Submariner referral: 126610LV. A deservingfollower of the green Submariner 16610LV (The Kermit), that was in factintroduced to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner.

The Submariner 14060 is still hot! This terminateddesign is in-demand and costs are ever-increasing. 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 chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is plainly the most widely knownamongst the world’s high-end watch brand names.
Essentiallythere are 2 Rolex clientgroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowverylittle.
Other Rolex clientsdon’tknow much about watches, just that Rolex is the best. For them the mainmotivator is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a big compliment for the producer— due to the fact that if even an individual who knowsabsolutely nothingabout watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the businessis doing something.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh item quality extending over the numerous years of its presence. Rolex watches revealtime accuratelyand are robust, strongand dependable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and improves the informationongoing. 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 manufacturerswith a lot morecostlyproducts.
It’s got everything a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the fact that the brandpresentedinnovativefunctionsrather early on which have actually made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmovement to the prominentKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlyconducted by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually ended up being a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the very first waterproofwristwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a number of years later– because to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be essentialto 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 very first watch to combine all 3features– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the essentials.
Quicklyrecognizabledesign, Rolex Models.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. Contribute to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf invention).
Existing collections are maintainedand continuallyimproved throughout the years. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallymindfulmodificationsto the renowneddesign of individualmodel collections over the yearshaveresulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex designshave actuallyonly seen incremental changes over the years.
There are no suddenstyle shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are changedonlyextremelyslowly. Typicaldesignfunctions like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet are part ofseveraldifferentmodels and havehardly evergone throughchange so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks very muchlike earlier designs. It’s why it is constantlyeasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance.
WatchprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the expertswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
This truth is real to a lesser extentfor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster designs and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or perhaps even more, than the initial purchase price.
