Rolex Submariner 126610LV
The 3rdgreen Rolex Submariner reference: 126610LV. A worthysuccessor of the green Submariner 16610LV (The Kermit), that was reallyintroduced to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner.

Why pickRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is clearlythe most widely knownamong the world’s luxury watch brand names. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never ever heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or evenPatek Philippe.
Essentiallythere are 2 Rolex consumergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who knowverylittle. Aficionadospurchase Rolex for its incrediblyhigh quality.
They may be less interested inveryfine, complexcraftsmanshipin favor of having the very best well-rounded expectdailywear.
Other Rolex customersdon’tunderstand 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 substantial compliment for the maker— due to the fact that if even a person who understandsnothingabout watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh item quality extending over the numerous years of its existence. Rolex watches revealtime properlyand are robust, durableand trustworthy.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailongoing. This holds true for the motions in addition tofor the case. You will not find a rotating bezel that ratchets so easily and efficiently like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end manufacturerswith much moreexpensiveproducts.
It’s got everything a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the truth that the brand namepresentedinnovativefeaturesquite early on which have made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf submitted a wristwatchmotion 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 ended up being a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first waterproofwatch was presented and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a number of years later on– because to ensurethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be essentialto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2functions are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the very first watch to combine all 3features– automaticwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Immediatelyidentifiabledesign, Rolex Op 41.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallycarefuladjustmentsto the renowneddesign of individualdesign collections over the yearshave actually resulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex modelshavejust seen incremental changes for many years.
It’s why it is alwayseasy to recognize a Rolex from a range. SeespecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not simply the expertswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
This truth is true to a lesser levelfor 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 maybe even more, than the original purchase rate.
