Rolex Submariner 41mm
In 2015 Rolex presented its brand-new Submariner collection and the world freaked. The new Submariner 41mm is somewhat larger than the previous model, had a bigger lug size, but thinner lugs that mightremind a bit more of the non-ceramic Submariner models.

Rolex Submariner 126610LV

A worthyfollower of the green Submariner 16610LV (The Kermit), that was actuallyintroduced to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner. In this article, have all 3 editions side-by-side.
It is ratheramazingthat the Submariners receive more checks out than the Daytona on Fratello.
Maybe some peoplesimply havegiven up on the brands‘ chronograph that is simply unobtainable.Unless you are willingto spend as much for this steel iconicwatch as a mid-size householdcar. We have a few Daytona owners in our group, however I onlysee Ben wearing his ratherroutinely.

Rolex Explorer 36mm
The Explorer was always a little bit ofa Rolex for those who know. And possibly it still is, however it did get incredibletraction on our site when Rolex introduced the new 36mm editions in steel and in bi-color.

Rolex Submariner 14060.
The last ‘genuine‘ Rolex Submariner as individuals tend to call them, with their aluminum bezel and streamlinedlugs. Here’s a story Michael did on this Rolex Submariner 14060M watch with 4-liner dial.
Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is plainlythe most well-knownamongst 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 perhapsPatek Philippe.
Basicallythere are 2 Rolex customergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandreallylittle. Fanaticsbuy Rolex for its exceptionallyhigh quality.
They might be less thinking aboutincrediblyfine, complicatedworkmanshipin favor of having the best all-around expecteverydaywear.
Other Rolex consumersdo notknow 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 manufacturer— since if even an individual who understandsabsolutely nothingabout watches views one particularbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its exceptionallyhigh product quality extending over the many years of its existence. Rolex watches revealtime preciselyand are robust, toughand dependable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the informationongoing. This is true for the motions as well asfor the case. You won’t discover a rotating bezel that ratchets so cleanly and efficiently like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its rivals– even other high-end manufacturerswith a lot morepriceyproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the fact that the brand nameintroducedinnovativefeaturesrather early on which have made the watch appropriate for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf submitted a wristwatchmotion to the distinguishedKew-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 become a requirement for internal mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the first waterproofwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a number of years later– since to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be neededto 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 decoratespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to combine all 3features– automaticwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the fundamentals.
Instantlyidentifiabledesign, Rolex Tudor.
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 verycautiousmodificationsto the renownedstyle of individualdesign collections over the decadeshave resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshave actuallyjust seen incremental changes for many years.
It’s why it is alwayseasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance. WatchprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the expertswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its worth.
The minute you buy a cars and truck, it drops in value by half. This reality is true to a lowerextent for watches– except for Rolex.
For the high-demand sport designs in stainless-steel at least (though this is a stickier scenariofor gold Oyster models and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or maybe even more, than the initialpurchase cost. This is an attractive point for any customer— no matter whether they are purchasing the expectthis specificreason or any other. It’s reassuring to understand you’ve made a wisechoice. Rolex Tudor.
