  • Catalogue Essay

    -Officially released in 1988 and discontinued in 2010, the Rolex Submariner ref. 14060 is the direct successor to the long-lived Rolex reference 5513. Featuring a glossy black lacquered dial with the absence of a date window, the Rolex reference 14060 features modern updates like the sapphire crystal and Triplock crown and at the same time is also the last reference featuring pinholes for bracelet removal easability.

    - Powered by the in-house automatic caliber 3000, the upgraded movement results in a deeper depth rating of 300 meters. Cased at 40mm in diameter, the case, with its slim proportions and clean aesthetics, sits very comfortably on the wrist.

    - The present example of Rolex Submariner reference 14060M, with a coveted “M” serial case and “4-liner” dial, from circa 2008, is accompanied by its full set of accessories and is a great opportunity to acquire a crisp example of an increasingly sought-after reference.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1905

    Founded in 1905 England by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis as Wilsdorf & Davis, it soon became known as the Rolex Watch Company in 1915, moving its headquarters to Geneva in 1919. Like no other company, the success of the wristwatch can be attributed to many of Rolex's innovations that made them one of the most respected and well-known of all luxury brands. These innovations include their famous "Oyster" case — the world's first water resistant and dustproof watch case, invented in 1926 — and their "Perpetual" — the first reliable self-winding movement for wristwatches launched in 1933. They would form the foundation for Rolex's Datejust and Day-Date, respectively introduced in 1945 and 1956, but also importantly for their sports watches, such as the Explorer, Submariner and GMT-Master launched in the mid-1950s.

    One of its most famous models is the Cosmograph Daytona. Launched in 1963, these chronographs are without any doubt amongst the most iconic and coveted of all collectible wristwatches. Other key collectible models include their most complicated vintage watches, including references 8171 and 6062 with triple calendar and moon phase, "Jean Claude Killy" triple date chronograph models and the Submariner, including early "big-crown" models and military-issued variants.
