Rolex New Releases
In A Hurry? Our Top Recommended Rolex Watch:
We have a minorpreference for vintagemodels ourselves, at least many of the Fratello editors, but the contemporary Rolex watches (if readily available) are simply HOT.
The Top 10 Rolex watches summarylisted below, has been createdutilizing the interest in our Rolex articles in the past 12 months.
Rolex Submariner 41mm
Last year Rolex introduced its new Submariner collection and the world went mad. The new Submariner 41mm is a little larger than the previous design, had a bigger lug size, but thinner lugs that mayadvise a bit more of the non-ceramic Submariner designs.
Mike wrote a post on why he likes the new Submariner watchesmore than the 40mm ceramic models in this article. Rolex New Releases.
Rolex Submariner 126610LV
The 3rdgreen Rolex Submariner reference: 126610LV. A worthyfollower of the green Submariner 16610LV (The Kermit), that was actuallypresented to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner.
It is ratherfantasticthat the Submariners get more checks out than the Daytona on Fratello.
Perhaps some individualssimply have actuallyprovided 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, but I onlysee Ben wearing his quiteregularly.
His individualstory on the Daytona can be read here.
Rolex Explorer 36mm

Rolex GMT-Master II ‘Pepsi’
We did an introduction of all Rolex GMT-Master watches in this post, from the really first referenceto today’s readily available designs. There wasn’t much fussabout it when Rolex did its newintros, but it was picked up by the fans rather rapidly.

The watch that was anticipated! The Rolex Explorer II referral226570 was introducedearlier this year, as a successor to the recommendationRolex Explorer II 216570 that was presented 10 years back, in 2011. It used to be among the most underrated Rolex sports watches, but not any longer.

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 pickRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand.
Rolex is clearlythe most widely knownamongst the world’s luxury watch brands. You’ve become aware of it even if you’ve never ever heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or perhapsPatek Philippe.
Fundamentallythere are two Rolex consumergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandextremelylittle. Enthusiastsbuy Rolex for its exceptionallyhigh quality.
They may be less interested inincrediblyfine, complicatedcraftsmanshipin favor of having the best all-around look forday-to-daywear.
Other Rolex clientsdon’tknow much about watches, only that Rolex is the best. For them the mainincentive is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a big compliment for the maker— since if even an individual who understandsnothingabout watches views one particularbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh item quality extending over the many years of its existence. Rolex watches show time accuratelyand are robust, sturdyand dependable.
Preservingconsistently high quality with projectedannual production numbers of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s advantage to leave outunusualproblems.
It has no tourbillons, perpetualcalendars or minute repeaters– not even motions with a large date display screen, power reserve signor alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailongoing. This holds true for the motions as well asfor the case. You will not find a turning bezel that ratchets so cleanly and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end producerswith a lot moreexpensiveproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the truth that the brandintroducedinnovativefeaturesquite early on which have made the watch well-suited for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf submitted a watchmovement to the distinguishedKew-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 become a requirement for internal mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the very first waterproofwatch was presented and the automatedwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later– since to make surethe 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 twofeatures are shown in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the very first watch to integrate all threefunctions– automatedwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Quicklyrecognizablestyle, Rolex New Releases.
The everydaywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. Add to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf creation).
Existing collections are keptand continuallyenhanced throughout the years. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verycarefuladjustmentsto the renownedstyle of individualmodel collections over the yearshave actuallyresulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshavejust seen incremental modifications over the years.
It’s why it is constantlysimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance. ViewspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not just the specialistswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its value.
The moment you buy a cars and truck, it drops in value by half. This fact is true to a lowerlevel for watches– except for Rolex.
For the high-demand sport designs in stainless-steel at least (though this is a stickier circumstancefor gold Oyster designs and the classygold 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 client— despite whether they are buying the expectthis particularreason or any other. It’s assuring to know you’ve made a sensiblechoice. Rolex New Releases.
