The last ‘genuine‘ Rolex Submariner as individuals 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 recognizablehigh-endbrand name.
Rolex is clearly the most widely knownamong the world’s luxury watch brands.
Fundamentallythere are 2 Rolex customergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who knowreallylittle.
Other Rolex customersdo 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— due to the fact that if even an individual who knowsabsolutely nothingabout watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the businessis doing something.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its exceptionallyhigh product quality extending over the lots of years of its existence. Rolex watches revealtime accuratelyand are robust, durableand dependable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailongoing. This is true for the motions along withfor the case. You won’t find a rotating bezel that ratchets so cleanly and efficiently like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end producerswith much moreexpensiveitems.
It’s got everything a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the fact that the brandintroducedingeniousfeaturesquite early on which have made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmotion 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 actually become a requirement for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first water-resistantwristwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a number of years later on– since to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be requiredto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2functions are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the very first watch to integrate all threefunctions– automaticwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the basics.
Quicklyrecognizabledesign, Rolex Ure.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelycarefuladjustmentsto the renowneddesign of individualdesign collections over the decadeshave actually resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshavejust seen incremental changes throughout the years.
There are no suddendesign shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are changedjustextremelyslowly. Typicaldesignfunctions like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet become part ofa number ofdifferentdesigns and havehardly evergone throughmodification so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks quitelike earlier designs. It’s why it is alwayseasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance.
WatchprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not simply the specialistswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
This truth is real to a lower extentfor watches– other than for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier circumstancefor gold Oyster designs and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or perhaps even more, than the original purchase price.
