Without moreado, here you go.
Rolex Submariner 41mm
In 2015 Rolex presented its brand-new Submariner collection and the world went mad. The brand-new Submariner 41mm is a little larger than the previous model, had a bigger lug size, but thinner lugs that mayadvise a bit more of the non-ceramic Submariner models.
Mike wrote an article on why he likes the new Submariner enjoysmore than the 40mm ceramic designs in this short article. Rolex Newsroom.
Rolex Submariner 126610LV
The 3rd green Rolex Submariner referral: 126610LV. This 41mm edition is the successorof “The Hulk” which was introduced in 2010.
A worthwhilefollower of the green Submariner 16610LV (The Kermit), that was in factintroduced to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner. In this post, have all 3 editions side-by-side.
It is ratheramazingthat the Submariners receive more reads than the Daytona on Fratello.
Possibly some individualssimply have actuallygiven up on the brands‘ chronograph that is just unobtainable.Unless you are willingto invest as much for this steel iconicwatch as a mid-size householdcars and truck. We have a few Daytona owners in our group, however I justsee Ben using his ratherregularly.
His personalstory on the Daytona can be checked out here.
Rolex Explorer 36mm
The Explorer was always a bit ofa Rolex for those who understand. And perhaps it still is, but it did get amazingtraction on our website when Rolex introduced the new 36mm editions in steel and in bi-color.
A bi-color Explorer, how weirdthat may sound, is something were are (really) slowly warming up to. We covered the new Rolex Explorer here.
Rolex Datejust Rolex Datejust 36
Over the years, this summaryof the top 10 Rolex watches alteredfrom having not a single Datejust in there to an increasing position every year. This year, Rolex introducednew dial variations for the iconic date watch.
Rolex GMT-Master II ‘Pepsi’
A Rolex GMT-Master II is hot, and maybehotter than it ever was in the past. We did an introduction of all Rolex GMT-Master watches in this short article, from the very first recommendationto today’s available designs.
After a short while of being onlyin the brochure (I will notwrite “available“) with a jubilee bracelet, the Oyster bracelet is back. There wasn’t much hassleabout it when Rolex did its brand-newintros, however it was gotten by the fans rather quickly.
We covered the returnhere.

Rolex Submariner 14060.
The last ‘real‘ Rolex Submariner as people 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 recognizableluxurybrand name.
Rolex is plainly the most widely knownamongst the world’s high-end watch brand names.
Basicallythere are two Rolex clientgroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowreallylittle.
Other Rolex customersdon’tknow much about watches, only that Rolex is the very best. For them the primaryincentive is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a substantialcompliment for the producer— due to the fact that if even an individual who knows nothing about watches views one particularbrand as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its exceptionallyhigh item quality crossing the many years of its existence. Rolex watches reveal time preciselyand are robust, durableand trustworthy.
Maintainingconsistently high quality with projectedannual production varieties of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s advantage to omitunusualissues.
It has no tourbillons, continuouscalendars or minute repeaters– not even motions with a large date display, power reserve signor alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationongoing. This is true for the motions along withfor the case. You will not discover a turning bezel that ratchets so cleanly and smoothly 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 connected to the fact that the brand namepresentedinnovativefeaturesrather early on which have made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf submitted a watchmovement to the popularKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlycarried out by the Swiss institute COSC) has ended up being a requirement for internal mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the first waterproofwristwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a number of years later– due to the fact that to make surethe 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 embellishespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all threefunctions– automatedwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the basics.
Instantlyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Newsroom.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallycautiousmodificationsto the iconicstyle of privatemodel collections over the decadeshave actually resulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex modelshave actuallyonly seen incremental changes throughout the years.
There are no unexpectedstyle shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are changedjustreallygradually. Normaldesignfeatures like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet become part ofa number ofdifferentdesigns and have actuallyhardly evergone throughchange so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks quitelike earlier models. It’s why it is constantlysimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance.
EnjoyspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not simply the specialistswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its value.
The moment you purchase a car, it drops in value by half. This reality 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 circumstancefor gold Oyster designs and the stylishgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or perhaps even more, than the initialpurchase price. This is an appealing point for any customer— no matter whether they are buying the watch forthis specificfactor or any other. It’s reassuring to understand you’ve made a wisechoice. Rolex Newsroom.
