Rolex Submariner 41mm
Last year Rolex presented its new Submariner collection and the world freaked. The new Submariner 41mm is slightly larger than the previous design, had a bigger lug size, but thinner lugs that mayremind a bit more of the non-ceramic Submariner models.

Rolex Submariner 126610LV
The 3rd green Rolex Submariner recommendation: 126610LV. This 41mm edition is the successorof “The Hulk” which was introduced in 2010.

Maybe some individualsjust have actuallyoffered up on the brands‘ chronograph that is just unobtainable. Unless you are prepared to invest as much for this steel renownedwatch as a mid-size householdautomobile.
Rolex Explorer 36mm
The Explorer was always a littlea Rolex for those who know. And perhaps it still is, but it did get amazingtraction on our website when Rolex introduced the brand-new 36mm editions in steel and in bi-color.

After an instant of being justin the catalog (I will notcompose “available“) with a jubilee bracelet, the Oyster bracelet is back. There wasn’t much difficultyabout it when Rolex did its brand-newintros, however it was picked up by the fans rather rapidly.

This watch is readily available in many differentdial colors and retails at EUR5,300. Rob wrote about the Oyster Perpetual 36 in this short article.
Rolex Submariner 14060.
The last ‘genuine‘ Rolex Submariner as people tend to call them, with their aluminum bezel and smoothlugs. 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 clearly the most well-knownamongst the world’s luxury watch brands.
Essentiallythere are two Rolex consumergroups– those who understand a lot, and those who understandreallylittle.
Other Rolex consumersdon’tknow much about watches, only that Rolex is the best. For them the primarymotivator is this: if you’re going to wear a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a bigcompliment for the maker— since if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one particularbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something right.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its extremelyhigh product quality extending over the lots of years of its presence. Rolex watches showtime accuratelyand are robust, durableand reputable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and improves the detailongoing. This is true for the movements as well asfor the case. You won’t find a turning bezel that ratchets so cleanly and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end makerswith far morepriceyitems.
It’s got everything a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the truth that the brandintroducedingeniousfunctionsrather early on which have made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf submitted a watchmovement to the prominentKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlycarried out by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually ended up being a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwristwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a number of years later on– since to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be essentialto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2features are reflected in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the very first watch to combine all 3features– automatedwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the essentials.
Immediatelyrecognizabledesign, Rolex Used.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language webportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallycautiousmodificationsto the renowneddesign of privatedesign collections over the decadeshave actually resulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshaveonly seen incremental modifications over the years.
There are no suddendesign shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are modifiedjustreallygradually. Typicaldesignfunctions like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet are part ofseveraldifferentdesigns and have actuallyseldomgone throughmodification so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks very muchlike earlier models. It’s why it is alwayseasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a range.
ViewprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not simply the specialistswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its value.
This reality is real to a lower levelfor watches– other than for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster models and the classygold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or possibly even more, than the initial purchase rate.
