Rolex Submariner 41mm
Last year Rolex presented its brand-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, however thinner lugs that mayremind a bit more of the non-ceramic Submariner models.
Mike wrote an article on why he likes the new Submariner watchesmore than the 40mm ceramic models in this short article. Rolex Zusammenstellen.
Rolex Submariner 126610LV
The thirdgreen Rolex Submariner recommendation: 126610LV. A worthysuccessor of the green Submariner 16610LV (The Kermit), that was reallyintroduced to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner.
It is somewhatamazingthat the Submariners receive more checks out than the Daytona on Fratello.
Possibly some individualssimply haveprovided up on the brands‘ chronograph that is just unobtainable.Unless you are willingto invest as much for this steel iconicwatch as a mid-size familyvehicle. We have a couple of Daytona owners in our team, but I onlysee Ben using his quitefrequently.
His individualstory on the Daytona can be read here.
Rolex Explorer 36mm
The Explorer was constantly a littlea Rolex for those who know. And perhaps it still is, however it did get fantastictraction on our website when Rolex presented the brand-new 36mm editions in steel and in bi-color.
A bi-color Explorer, how unusualthat may sound, is something were are (very) slowly heating up to. We covered the new Rolex Explorer here.
Rolex Datejust Rolex Datejust 36
Over the years, this introductionof the leading 10 Rolex watches alteredfrom having not a single Datejust in there to an increasing position every year. This year, Rolex introducednew dial variations for the renowned date watch.
Rolex GMT-Master II ‘Pepsi’
A Rolex GMT-Master II is hot, and maybehotter than it ever was in the past. We did a summary of all Rolex GMT-Master watches in this short article, from the very first referenceto today’s offered models.
After a short while of being justin the brochure (I won’twrite “offered“) with a jubilee bracelet, the Oyster bracelet is back. There wasn’t much hassleabout it when Rolex did its newintroductions, however it was gotten by the fans rather quickly.

Rolex Submariner 14060.
The Submariner 14060 is still hot! This ceasedmodel is desired and costs 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 selectRolex Watch?
It is the most identifiablehigh-endbrand.
Rolex is plainly the most widely knownamong the world’s high-end watch brands.
Essentiallythere are 2 Rolex customergroups– those who know a lot, and those who understandextremelylittle.
Other Rolex customersdon’tknow much about watches, only that Rolex is the very best. For them the mainmotivator 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 an individual who knows nothing about watches views one specificbrand name as “Number One”, the companyis doing something right.
Constantlevel of quality.
The basis for Rolex’s success is its extremelyhigh product quality extending over the many years of its existence. Rolex watches revealtime preciselyand are robust, toughand trustworthy.
The Rolex Cerachrom bezel.
The businessconcentrates onwhat it does best, and improves the detailcontinuous. This is true for the movements as well asfor the case. You will not discover a rotating bezel that ratchets so easily and smoothly like the one on the Submariner or GMT-Master II from any of its competitors– even other high-end manufacturerswith much morepriceyproducts.
It’s got whatever a watch requires.
The significance of the Rolex name is connected to the truth that the brand namepresentedingeniousfeaturesrather early on which have actually made the watch well-suited for daily wear. In 1914 Rolex founderHans Wilsdorf submitted a watchmotion 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 become a requirement for in-house mechanical Rolex qualities. In 1927 the first water-resistantwatch was presented and the automatedwinding mechanismfollowed a couple of years later on– because to make surethe water-resistance of a watch, it shouldn’t be essentialto pull the crown every day.
The first Oyster case in 1927 and first Oyster Perpetual in 1945.
These 2features are shown in the product name “Oyster Perpetual”, which embellishesvirtuallyevery Rolex. The Datejust, introduced in 1945, was the first watch to combine all threefunctions– automaticwinding, waterproof case and chronometer certificate. Together with its name date window, it has all the essentials.
Quicklyrecognizablestyle, Rolex Zusammenstellen.
The round shape of a Rolex contributes to its water-resistance and its remarkablelegibility. This is supported by Rolex expertPercy Christian Schoeler, founder of the German-language internetwebsites Luxify and R-L-X-Forum: “Only verycautiousadjustmentsto the iconicdesign of specificmodel collections over the decadeshave actually resulted in a high degree of recognition.”.
Rolex modelshave actuallyonly seen incremental modifications throughout the years.
There are no abruptdesign shifts or leaps, and even case sizes are changedonlyverygradually. Typicaldesignfeatures like the grooved bezel, “Mercedes” hands, Cyclops magnifier and the Oyster bracelet belong toseveraldifferentmodels and have actuallyrarelyundergonechange 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.
SeeprofessionalGisbert L. Brunner calls this the “10-meter guideline“– and it’s not simply the expertswho acknowledgethem.
Keeps its value.
This fact is real to a lower degreefor watches– except for Rolex. For the high-demand sport designs in stainless steel at least (though this is a stickier situationfor gold Oyster designs and the stylishgold Cellini watches) it’s possible to get simplya little less, or perhaps even more, than the initial purchase cost.
