The last ‘genuine‘ 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 selectRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizablehigh-endbrand name.
Rolex is plainlythe most well-knownamongst the world’s high-end watch brands. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or evenPatek Philippe.
Basicallythere are two Rolex customergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandreallylittle. Fanaticspurchase Rolex for its exceptionallyhigh quality.
They might be less interested inincrediblygreat, complexcraftsmanshipin favor of having the very best well-rounded watch foreverydaywear.
Other Rolex consumersdon’tunderstand much about watches, only that Rolex is the very best. For them the mainincentive 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 knowsnothingabout watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its extremelyhigh item quality extending over the many years of its presence. Rolex watches showtime properlyand are robust, durableand reputable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationongoing. This holds true for the motions as well asfor the case. You won’t find a turning bezel that ratchets so easily and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end manufacturerswith a lot morecostlyproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the fact that the brandpresentedingeniousfeaturesrather early on which have made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmovement to the prominentKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlycarried out by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually ended up being a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the first waterproofwristwatch was presented and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later on– because to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be neededto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2functions are shown in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the very first watch to integrate all threefeatures– automatedwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Instantlyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Thunderbird.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelycarefulmodificationsto the renownedstyle of privatemodel collections over the yearshave resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshaveonly seen incremental modifications over the years.
It’s why it is constantlyeasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a range. WatchprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not simply the expertswho recognizethem.
Keeps its value.
This fact is real to a lesser degreefor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier circumstancefor gold Oyster models and the classygold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or perhaps even more, than the original purchase rate.
