The 3rdgreen Rolex Submariner recommendation: 126610LV. A deservingfollower of the green Submariner 16610LV (The Kermit), that was in factpresented to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner.

Why pickRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand name.
Rolex is plainlythe most well-knownamongst the world’s luxury watch brand names. You’ve become aware of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, and evenPatek Philippe.
Essentiallythere are two Rolex customergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who knowverylittle. Fanaticsbuy Rolex for its extremelyhigh quality.
They may be less interested inveryfine, complexworkmanshipin favor of having the very best all-around look forday-to-daywear.
Other Rolex customersdon’tunderstand much about watches, just that Rolex is the best. For them the mainincentive is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a substantial compliment for the maker— since if even an individual who understandsabsolutely nothingabout watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh product quality extending over the numerous years of its existence. Rolex watches showtime properlyand are robust, toughand reliable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationcontinuous. This is true for the motions along withfor the case. You won’t discover a rotating bezel that ratchets so easily and efficiently like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end manufacturerswith much moreexpensiveitems.
It’s got whatever a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the truth that the brand namepresentedinnovativefeaturesquite early on which have actually made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmotion to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (presentlycarried out by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually become a requirement for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first waterproofwatch was presented and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later– due to the fact that to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be requiredto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and 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 threefunctions– automaticwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the basics.
Quicklyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Two Tone.
The everydaywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. Add to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf creation).
Existing collections are preservedand continuallyimproved over the years. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language internetportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verycautiousadjustmentsto the iconicdesign of privatemodel collections over the yearshaveresulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshaveonly seen incremental modifications for many years.
There are no suddenstyle shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are changedjustveryslowly. Normaldesignfunctions like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet become part ofnumerousdifferentmodels and havehardly evergone throughmodification so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks quitelike 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 specialistswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its value.
The minute you purchase an automobile, it drops in value by half. This truth is true to a lesserdegree for watches– except for Rolex.
For the high-demand sport models in stainless-steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster designs and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or maybe even more, than the originalpurchase rate. This is an attractive point for any client— despite whether they are buying the look forthis specificfactor or any other. It’s reassuring to know you’ve made a wisedecision. Rolex Two Tone.
