Rolex Submariner 41mm
In 2015 Rolex presented its new Submariner collection and the world went mad. The new Submariner 41mm is a little larger than the previous design, had a larger lug size, but thinner lugs that mightadvise a bit more of the non-ceramic Submariner models.

The 3rdgreen Rolex Submariner reference: 126610LV. A worthysuccessor of the green Submariner 16610LV (The Kermit), that was reallypresented to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner.
It is somewhatfantasticthat the Submariners get more checks out than the Daytona on Fratello. Howeverperhaps some peoplesimply have given up on the brands‘ chronograph that is just unobtainable.Unless you are willingto invest as much for this steel iconicwatch as a mid-size householdvehicle.

Here’s a story Michael did on this Rolex Submariner 14060M watch with 4-liner dial.
Why chooseRolex Watch?
It is the most recognizableluxurybrand.
Rolex is plainly the most widely knownamong the world’s luxury watch brand names.
Essentiallythere are two Rolex consumergroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowverylittle.
Other Rolex consumersdon’tknow much about watches, only that Rolex is the best. For them the primarymotivator is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a bigcompliment for the manufacturer— because if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the companyis doing something right.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh product quality extending over the many years of its existence. Rolex watches showtime preciselyand are robust, sturdyand reliable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the informationongoing. This holds true for the movements as well asfor the case. You will not find a turning 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 producerswith a lot morepriceyproducts.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the fact that the brandpresentedingeniousfeaturesquite early on which have actually made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmotion to the renownedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer certification.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlyconducted by the Swiss institute COSC) has actually become a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the first water-resistantwatch was presented and the automaticwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later– due to the fact that to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be essentialto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2functions are reflected in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishespracticallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to integrate all 3features– automaticwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its namesake date window, it has all the basics.
Immediatelyidentifiabledesign, Rolex Watch Jumia.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its style. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its superiorlegibility. Add to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf development).
Existing collections are maintainedand constantlyimproved throughout the years. This is supported by Rolex specialistPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallymindfuladjustmentsto the iconicstyle of specificdesign collections over the decadeshaveresulted in a high degree of acknowledgment.”.
Rolex designshaveonly seen incremental modifications over the years.
There are no abruptstyle shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are changedonlyreallyslowly. Typicaldesignfunctions like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet become part ofseveraldifferentdesigns and haverarelyundergonemodification so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks quitelike earlier designs. It’s why it is alwayseasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance.
WatchspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not simply the professionalswho recognizethem.
Keeps its value.
The moment you purchase a vehicle, it drops in value by half. This fact 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 circumstancefor gold Oyster designs and the classygold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get justa little less, or maybe even more, than the originalpurchase cost. This is an appealing point for any consumer— regardless of whether they are buying the expectthis specificfactor or any other. It’s assuring to understand you’ve made a wisedecision.
