Rolex Submariner 41mm
In 2015 Rolex presented its brand-new Submariner collection and the world freaked. The new Submariner 41mm is a little larger than the previous model, had a larger lug size, but thinner lugs that mightadvise a bit more of the non-ceramic Submariner designs.
Mike wrote a short article on why he likes the new Submariner seesmore than the 40mm ceramic designs in this post. Rolex New.
Rolex Submariner 126610LV
The third green Rolex Submariner reference: 126610LV. This 41mm edition is the followerof “The Hulk” which was introduced in 2010.
A worthysuccessor of the green Submariner 16610LV (The Kermit), that was in factpresented to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner. In this article, have all three editions side-by-side.
It is somewhatfantasticthat the Submariners get more reads than the Daytona on Fratello. Butpossibly some peoplejust have actually given up on the brands‘ chronograph that is simply unobtainable.Unless you are willingto invest as much for this steel iconicwatch as a mid-size householdautomobile. We have a few Daytona owners in our group, but I justsee Ben using his quitefrequently.
His individualstory on the Daytona can be checked out here.
Rolex Explorer 36mm
The Explorer was always a bit ofa Rolex for those who know. And maybe it still is, however it did get remarkabletraction on our site when Rolex introduced the brand-new 36mm editions in steel and in bi-color.

Rolex Datejust Rolex Datejust 36
Over the years, this introductionof the leading 10 Rolex watches changedfrom having not a single Datejust in there to an increasing position every year. You can’t go wrong with a Datejust, it is a classic.

Rolex GMT-Master II ‘Pepsi’

The watch that was anticipated! The Rolex Explorer II recommendation226570 was presentedpreviously this year, as a successor to the referralRolex Explorer II 216570 that was introduced 10 years earlier, in 2011. It used to be one of the most underrated Rolex sports watches, but not anymore.

The Submariner 14060 is still hot! This discontinueddesign is popular and prices are ever-increasing. The last ‘genuine‘ Rolex Submariner as people tend to call them, with their aluminum bezel and sleeklugs.
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 knownamong the world’s high-end watch brand names.
Basicallythere are 2 Rolex clientgroups– those who understand a lot, and those who knowverylittle.
Other Rolex clientsdon’tunderstand much about watches, just that Rolex is the very best. For them the mainincentive 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— since if even an individual 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 item quality extending over the numerous years of its existence. Rolex watches revealtime properlyand are robust, strongand trusted.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and improves the detailongoing. This holds true for the motions as well asfor the case. You will not discover a rotating bezel that ratchets so easily and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end makerswith far morecostlyproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the truth that the brandintroducedinnovativefeaturesrather early on which have made the watch well-suited for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmovement to the popularKew-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 ended up being a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first waterproofwatch was introduced and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later– since to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be necessaryto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofunctions are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratespracticallyevery 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 basics.
Immediatelyrecognizabledesign, Rolex New.
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 preservedand continuouslyimproved for many years. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelycautiousmodificationsto the iconicdesign of specificmodel collections over the decadeshave actuallyresulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshavejust seen incremental modifications throughout the years.
It’s why it is constantlysimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a range. ViewexpertGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not simply the professionalswho recognizethem.
Keeps its value.
The moment you buy an automobile, it drops in worth by half. This reality is true to a lesserlevel for watches– except for Rolex.
For the high-demand sport models in stainless-steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster designs and the classygold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or perhaps even more, than the initialpurchase cost. This is an appealing point for any consumer— regardless of whether they are purchasing the expectthis particularfactor or any other. It’s reassuring to know you’ve made a wisechoice. Rolex New.
