    Rolex

    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.

Ref. 14606M
Whether for deep sea divers, or just weekend yachtsmen, the Rolex Submariner, a legend of horology, has always been a beloved companion, well-known and worn with pride. The present 14060M model has been referred to as “the last of the best”. While retaining the beauty of its vintage predecessors, this reference incorporates modern technological advances, such as a 300-meter depth resistance and Calibre 3130 movement. What sets the 14060M apart is its sober elegance, and the limited production series (2007-2012) of its “4-liner” dial, owing to its official Chronometer certification. The present model comes complete with its Original Rolex box, certificate, booklets, wallet, hang tags and service history.
