Here’s a story Michael did on this Rolex Submariner 14060M watch with 4-liner dial.
Why selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand name.
Rolex is plainlythe most popularamong 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.
Essentiallythere are 2 Rolex clientgroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandverylittle. Enthusiastspurchase Rolex for its veryhigh quality.
They might be less interested inextremelygreat, complexworkmanshipin favor of having the very best well-rounded watch foreverydaywear.
Other Rolex customersdon’tknow much about watches, just that Rolex is the best. For them the primaryincentive is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a hugecompliment for the maker— due to the fact that if even an individual who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh product quality extending over the many years of its presence. Rolex watches show time preciselyand are robust, sturdyand trusted.
Preservingregularly high quality with approximatedannual production varieties of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s advantage to omitunusualcomplications.
It has no tourbillons, continuouscalendars or minute repeaters– not even motions with a big date display, power reserve signor alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationcontinuous. This is 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 competitors– even other high-end makerswith far moreexpensiveproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the reality that the brand namepresentedingeniousfeaturesquite early on which have made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf submitted a wristwatchmovement to the popularKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlycarried out by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually ended up being a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the first waterproofwatch was introduced and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a number of years later on– because to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be neededto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofunctions are reflected in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the very first watch to combine all 3functions– automaticwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the essentials.
Quicklyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Oyster Perpetual.
The everydaywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. Add to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf innovation).
Existing collections are keptand continuallyenhanced throughout the years. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallycautiousadjustmentsto the iconicdesign of individualdesign collections over the yearshaveresulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex modelshavejust seen incremental changes throughout the years.
It’s why it is alwayseasy to recognize a Rolex from a distance. EnjoyspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not simply the professionalswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
This fact is real to a lesser degreefor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster models and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or possibly even more, than the original purchase rate.
