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 plainlythe most well-knownamongst the world’s high-end watch brand names. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or perhapsPatek Philippe.
Basicallythere are two Rolex clientgroups– those who understand a lot, and those who knowextremelylittle. Enthusiastsbuy Rolex for its incrediblyhigh quality.
They might be less thinking aboutverygreat, complicatedcraftsmanshipin favor of having the very best all-around watch foreverydaywear.
Other Rolex customersdon’tknow much about watches, only that Rolex is the very 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 substantialcompliment for the maker— due to the fact that if even an individual who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the businessis doing something right.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its extremelyhigh product quality extending over the many years of its existence. Rolex watches reveal time properlyand are robust, durableand reliable.
Preservingregularly high quality with approximatedannual production numbers of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s benefit to leave outunusualproblems.
It has no tourbillons, continuouscalendars or minute repeaters– not even movements with a big date screen, power reserve indicatoror alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the informationcontinuous. This holds true for the movements in addition tofor the case. You won’t find a rotating bezel that ratchets so easily and efficiently like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end producerswith a lot moreexpensiveitems.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the fact that the brandpresentedingeniousfeaturesrather early on which have made the watch appropriate for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex creatorHans Wilsdorf submitted a watchmotion to the prominentKew-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 become a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex calibers. In 1927 the first water-resistantwatch was presented and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a number of years later on– due to the fact that to make surethe 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 2features are reflected in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which decoratesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented in 1945, was the first watch to combine all threefunctions– automatedwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the basics.
Instantlyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Yacht Master 42.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. This is supported by Rolex professionalPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language internetportals Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only extremelymindfulmodificationsto the iconicdesign of privatedesign collections over the decadeshave resulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex modelshave actuallyjust seen incremental changes for many years.
It’s why it is constantlysimple to acknowledge a Rolex from a distance. WatchspecialistGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter rule“– and it’s not just the professionalswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
This reality is real to a lesser degreefor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier circumstancefor gold Oyster designs and the classygold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or possibly even more, than the initial purchase rate.
