Rolex Black Dial Submariner Ref. 14060

$9,995

Pre-Owned 40mm Rolex Submariner black bezel and dial, stainless steel bracelet, Ref. 14060

Is this reference 14060 the perfect Submariner?  Many people think so.  This reference 14060 has a nice combination of traditional features with updates.  The primary feature is the purity of the no-date model.  With a bezel insert that is still aluminum, its color will age in a way that is unique to this watch.  This earlier reference 14060 also includes tritium lume, which will also develop a patina with age.  Later versions of this reference included Superluminova, which although bright will not develop the colors that appeal to collectors.  At 40mm, the case has the slender profile that became in later years more stout in appearance.  Not least, the reference 14060 case still has lug holes, which simplifies switching bracelets and straps.

The updates did not distract from the traditional appearance.  The reference 14060 became the first no-date Submariner to have both a sapphire crystal and a Triplock crown, which also gave the watch an increased water resistance from 200 to 300 meters (1,000 feet).  The movement was replaced with the caliber 3000, which at the time was not a certified Chronometer.  This meant that the dial never included the words ‘Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified’, which makes the “two-liner” dial appear cleaner.    This pre-owned watch is in excellent condition.

Description

Rolex is recognized throughout the world not only as a brand associated with luxury, but as a watch that is both luxurious and precise.  For Rolex, this hard-won and well-deserved recognition was never in doubt.  The founder, Hans Wilsdorf named the company Rolex so as to be pronounceable in any language as he anticipated the acclaim his company would receive due to relentless pursuit of precision and accuracy in a wristwatch.  Soon after its founding, Rolex produced the first wristwatch to receive the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, which was followed rapidly by receipt of a certificate of precision from the Kew Observatory in Great Britain.  From those roots Rolex built a legacy of innovation.  The “Oyster” watch was the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch in 1926, followed by the first self-winding “Perpetual” rotor.  Building once again on innovation, the “Datejust” became the first self-winding wrist chronometer to include a date in a window on the dial.  Adventurous women and men who strive to achieve what was never before been achieved have chosen Rolex for their expedition, which both perpetuates the brand’s claim to precision and dependability as well as attests to its veracity.  Hans Wilsdorf may have anticipated the acclaim Rolex would someday achieve, but even he might have been impressed its success.
