Rolex Submariner 14060.
The last ‘real‘ 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 selectRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand name.
Rolex is plainly the most well-knownamongst the world’s high-end watch brand names.
Basicallythere are two Rolex consumergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandextremelylittle.
Other Rolex customersdon’tunderstand 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 producer— because if even an individual who understandsnothingabout watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh item quality extending over the lots of years of its presence. Rolex watches showtime accuratelyand are robust, toughand reliable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and enhances the informationcontinuous. This is true for the motions in addition tofor the case. You will not find 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 manufacturerswith much morepriceyproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the fact that the brand nameintroducedinnovativefunctionsrather early on which have made the watch well-suited for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans 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 (presentlyconducted by the Swiss institute COSC) has become a requirement for internal mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first waterproofwristwatch was presented and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later– since to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be necessaryto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These twofeatures are reflected in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to combine all threefunctions– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the essentials.
Immediatelyidentifiabledesign, Rolex Usati.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. Add to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf creation).
Existing collections are keptand continuouslyimproved for many years. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verycarefulmodificationsto the renowneddesign of privatemodel collections over the decadeshaveled to a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex modelshave actuallyonly seen incremental modifications over the years.
It’s why it is constantlysimple 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 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 circumstancefor gold Oyster designs and the sophisticatedgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or possibly even more, than the initial purchase price.
