The 3rdgreen Rolex Submariner referral: 126610LV. A worthyfollower of the green Submariner 16610LV (The Kermit), that was reallypresented to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner.

Butperhaps some individualssimply have quit on the brand names‘ chronograph that is simply unobtainable.Unless you wantto spend as much for this steel iconicwatch as a mid-size familyvehicle.

The Submariner 14060 is still hot! This ceasedmodel is popular and prices are ever-increasing. The last ‘genuine‘ Rolex Submariner as people tend to call them, with their aluminum bezel and streamlinedlugs.
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 plainly the most popularamong the world’s high-end watch brands.
Essentiallythere are 2 Rolex consumergroups– those who know a lot, and those who understandextremelylittle.
Other Rolex clientsdo notknow much about watches, only that Rolex is the very best. For them the mainincentive is this: if you’re going to use a watch, it’s got to be a Rolex. And this is a hugecompliment for the manufacturer— since if even a person who knows nothing about watches views one particularbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its incrediblyhigh item quality extending over the many years of its presence. Rolex watches revealtime preciselyand are robust, toughand reputable.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyconcentrates onwhat it does best, and enhances the detailongoing. This is true for the motions as well asfor the case. You will not 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 manufacturerswith a lot morepriceyproducts.
It’s got everything a watch needs.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the fact that the brand nameintroducedinnovativefunctionsrather early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf sent a wristwatchmotion to the distinguishedKew-Teddington observatory for chronometer accreditation.
The COSC-certified Caliber 4130 that powers the Daytona.
Today the chronometer test (currentlyconducted by the Swiss institute COSC) has become a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the very first water-resistantwatch was introduced and the automaticwinding systemfollowed a couple of years later– because to guaranteethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be neededto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2functions are reflected in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to combine all 3features– automatedwinding, water-resistant case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the essentials.
Immediatelyidentifiablestyle, Rolex Watch Yupoo.
The everydaywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. Add to this a central sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf invention).
Existing collections are preservedand continuallyenhanced for many years. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, creator of the German-language webwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only reallycarefuladjustmentsto the renowneddesign of specificmodel collections over the decadeshaveled to a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex designshavejust seen incremental changes for many years.
There are no unexpecteddesign shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are modifiedonlyreallygradually. Normalstylefeatures like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet become part ofseveralvariousdesigns and havehardly evergone throughmodification so a Datejust or a Submariner today looks very muchlike earlier models. It’s why it is constantlyeasy to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance.
WatchspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not simply the specialistswho recognizethem.
Keeps its value.
This truth is true to a lower extentfor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier circumstancefor gold Oyster models and the elegantgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or perhaps even more, than the original purchase rate.
