The last ‘real‘ Rolex Submariner as individuals tend to call them, with their aluminum bezel and smoothlugs. Here’s a story Michael did on this Rolex Submariner 14060M watch with 4-liner dial.
Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiableluxurybrand.
Rolex is plainlythe most widely knownamong the world’s high-end watch brand names. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or evenPatek Philippe.
Essentiallythere are two Rolex consumergroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowextremelylittle. Connoisseursbuy Rolex for its exceptionallyhigh quality.
They may be less thinking aboutveryfine, complicatedcraftsmanshipin favor of having the very best well-rounded watch fordailywear.
Other Rolex customersdo notknow much about watches, just that Rolex is the 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 manufacturer— since if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its exceptionallyhigh product quality extending over the many years of its presence. Rolex watches reveal time accuratelyand are robust, durableand trustworthy.
Preservingconsistently 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 leave outuncommoncomplications.
It has no tourbillons, continuouscalendars or minute repeaters– not even movements with a large date display, power reserve signor alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and improves the informationongoing. This holds true for the movements in addition tofor 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 producerswith far morepriceyitems.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the reality that the brand nameintroducedingeniousfunctionsrather early on which have made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmovement to the distinguishedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlyperformed by the Swiss institute COSC) has ended up being a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the first waterproofwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a number of years later– since to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be essentialto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2features are shown in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented 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 essentials.
Immediatelyrecognizabledesign, Rolex Submariner Date.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verycautiousadjustmentsto the renowneddesign of privatedesign collections over the decadeshave actually resulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex designshave actuallyonly seen incremental modifications over the years.
There are no unexpectedstyle shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are changedonlyreallygradually. Normalstylefeatures like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet are part ofa number ofvariousmodels and have actuallyseldomundergonemodification so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks very muchlike earlier models. It’s why it is constantlyeasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance.
EnjoyspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not just the professionalswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its value.
This reality is true to a lower degreefor watches– other than for Rolex. For the high-demand sport models in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster designs and the stylishgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or possibly even more, than the initial purchase price.
