Our 2nd Recommended Rolex:
The Top 10 Rolex watches summarybelow, has actually been producedusing the interest in our Rolex articles in the past 12 months.
Without furtherado, here you go.
Rolex Submariner 41mm
In 2015 Rolex presented its new Submariner collection and the world went mad. The brand-new Submariner 41mm is slightly larger than the previous design, had a bigger lug size, however thinner lugs that mightremind a bit more of the non-ceramic Submariner models.
Mike wrote an article on why he likes the brand-new Submariner seesmore than the 40mm ceramic designs in this short article. Rolex Service.
Rolex Submariner 126610LV
The thirdgreen Rolex Submariner reference: 126610LV. A deservingfollower of the green Submariner 16610LV (The Kermit), that was in factpresented to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner.
It is ratherfantasticthat the Submariners receive more reads than the Daytona on Fratello. Howevermaybe some peoplejust have given up on the brand names‘ chronograph that is just unobtainable.Unless you wantto spend as much for this steel iconicwatch as a mid-size familyvehicle. We have a couple of Daytona owners in our team, but I onlysee Ben wearing his ratherfrequently.
His personalstory on the Daytona can be checked out here.
Rolex Explorer 36mm
The Explorer was constantly a bit ofa Rolex for those who know. And perhaps it still is, however it did get fantastictraction on our site when Rolex presented the new 36mm editions in steel and in bi-color.
A bi-color Explorer, how oddthat may sound, is something were are (very) gradually heating up to. We covered the new Rolex Explorer here.
Rolex Datejust Rolex Datejust 36

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 offered designs. There wasn’t much hassleabout it when Rolex did its newintros, but it was picked up by the fans rather quickly.
Rolex Explorer II 226570
The Rolex Explorer II reference226570 was introducedearlier this year, as a successor to the referralRolex Explorer II 216570 that was presented 10 years ago, in 2011. It used to be one of the most underrated Rolex sports watches, but not any longer.

This watch is readily available in many differentdial colors and retails at EUR5,300. Rob wrote about the Oyster Perpetual 36 in this short article.
Rolex Submariner 14060.
The last ‘real‘ 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 identifiableluxurybrand name.
Rolex is clearly the most popularamong the world’s luxury watch brand names.
Basicallythere are 2 Rolex consumergroups– those who know a lot, and those who understandverylittle.
Other Rolex consumersdo notknow much about watches, just that Rolex is the very best. For them the primarymotivator is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a hugecompliment for the producer— due to the fact that if even an individual who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its exceptionallyhigh product quality extending over the numerous years of its presence. Rolex watches revealtime preciselyand are robust, sturdyand reliable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailongoing. This is true for the motions in addition tofor the case. You will not find a rotating 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 far morecostlyproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the fact that the brand nameintroducedinnovativefeaturesrather early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmotion to the prominentKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlyconducted by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually become a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first water-resistantwatch was introduced and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later– because to ensurethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be requiredto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofunctions are shown in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishespracticallyevery 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 basics.
Instantlyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Service.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallymindfuladjustmentsto the renowneddesign of specificdesign collections over the yearshave resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshavejust seen incremental changes for many years.
It’s why it is alwayssimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance. EnjoyspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not simply the expertswho recognizethem.
Keeps its value.
This fact is true to a lower extentfor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier scenariofor gold Oyster designs and the sophisticatedgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or perhaps even more, than the initial purchase price.
