Rolex Submariner 41mm
In 2015 Rolex introduced its brand-new Submariner collection and the world went mad. The new Submariner 41mm is a little larger than the previous design, had a bigger lug size, but thinner lugs that mayadvise a bit more of the non-ceramic Submariner designs.
Mike composed a short article on why he likes the new Submariner viewsmore than the 40mm ceramic models in this post. Rolex Zug.
Rolex Submariner 126610LV
The 3rd green Rolex Submariner recommendation: 126610LV. This 41mm edition is the followerof “The Hulk” which was introduced in 2010.
A deservingsuccessor of the green Submariner 16610LV (The Kermit), that was in factpresented to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner. In this short article, have all 3 editions side-by-side.
It is somewhatfantasticthat the Submariners get more reads than the Daytona on Fratello.
Maybe some individualsjust haveoffered up on the brand names‘ chronograph that is simply unobtainable.Unless you are willingto invest as much for this steel iconicwatch as a mid-size householdcars and truck. We have a couple of Daytona owners in our team, however I onlysee Ben wearing his quiteregularly.
His personalstory on the Daytona can be checked out here.
Rolex Explorer 36mm

Rolex GMT-Master II ‘Pepsi’
A Rolex GMT-Master II is hot, and possiblyhotter than it ever was in the past. We did an introduction of all Rolex GMT-Master watches in this short article, from the very first referralto today’s readily available designs.
After an instant of being justin the catalog (I won’tcompose “offered“) with a jubilee bracelet, the Oyster bracelet is back. There wasn’t much difficultyabout it when Rolex did its brand-newintroductions, however it was gotten by the fans rather rapidly.
We covered the comebackhere.

The watch that was expected! The Rolex Explorer II referral226570 was presentedpreviously this year, as a successor to the recommendationRolex Explorer II 216570 that was presented 10 years back, in 2011. It used to be one of the most underrated Rolex sports watches, but not any longer.

The Submariner 14060 is still hot! This ceasedmodel is popular and costs are ever-increasing. The last ‘genuine‘ Rolex Submariner as people 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 identifiableluxurybrand.
Rolex is plainlythe most well-knownamong the world’s high-end watch brand names. You’ve heard of it even if you’ve never ever heard anything about Omega or Breitling, or perhapsPatek Philippe.
Fundamentallythere are two Rolex clientgroups– those who know a lot, and those who knowverylittle. Aficionadosbuy Rolex for its extremelyhigh quality.
They might be less thinking aboutincrediblygreat, complexcraftsmanshipin favor of having the best all-around watch forday-to-daywear.
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 huge compliment for the producer— since if even an individual who understandsabsolutely nothingabout watches views one specificbrand as “Number One”, the businessis doing something.
Consistentlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its veryhigh item quality extending over the many years of its existence. Rolex watches reveal time preciselyand are robust, durableand reliable.
Maintainingconsistently high quality with projectedannual production varieties of about three-quarters of a million pieces is an art unto itself. And it’s to Rolex’s benefit to omitunusualissues.
It has no tourbillons, perpetualcalendars or minute repeaters– not even motions with a large date display, power reserve indicatoror alarm function.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The companyfocuses onwhat it does best, and improves the detailongoing. This holds true for the movements as well asfor the case. You won’t discover 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 makerswith a lot moreexpensiveitems.
It’s got everything a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is linked to the fact that the brandintroducedingeniousfunctionsquite early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for everyday wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf sent a watchmovement to the distinguishedKew-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 become a standard for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the first waterproofwatch was introduced and the automatedwinding systemfollowed a number of years later on– because to ensurethe water-resistance of a watch, it should not be neededto pull the crown every day.
The very first Oyster case in 1927 and very first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2features are shown in the item name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesessentiallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, presented 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 fundamentals.
Instantlyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Zug.
The dailywearability of a watch is a function of its design. The round shape of a Rolex adds to its water-resistance and its exceptionallegibility. Contribute to this a main sweep seconds hand and Cyclops date magnifier (another Hans Wilsdorf innovation).
Existing collections are preservedand continuallyenhanced for many years. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verymindfuladjustmentsto the renownedstyle of specificdesign collections over the yearshaveled to a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex designshaveonly seen incremental changes over the years.
There are no unexpectedstyle shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are modifiedonlyextremelyslowly. Normaldesignfunctions like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet belong toseveralvariousdesigns and have actuallyrarelyundergonechange 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 guideline“– and it’s not simply the specialistswho recognizethem.
Keeps its worth.
The minute you buy a car, it drops in value by half. This reality is true to a lesserlevel for watches– except for Rolex.
For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier scenariofor gold Oyster models and the classygold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or perhaps even more, than the initialpurchase cost. This is an appealing point for any customer— no matter whether they are buying the look forthis specificreason or any other. It’s assuring to know you’ve made a wisechoice. Rolex Zug.
