  • Catalogue Essay

    Released in 1988, the Rolex Submariner ref. 14060 is the direct successor to the long-lived ref. 5513 which was first launched in 1962. Featuring a glossy black lacquered dial with the absence of a date window, the ref. 14060 has become a fan favourite due to its clean and distinct appeal and being the last Submariner reference still with pinholes. Upgraded with a sapphire crystal, Triplock crown and powered by the cal. 3000, the result was a deeper depth rating of 300 meters. The reference was discontinued in 2010.

    The present example Rolex Submariner ref. 14060M with a “G” serial from circa 2010 offered in “new-old-stock” condition with its full factory protective stickers intact is one of the last examples to leave the Rolex factory before it was discontinued in the same year. It is complete with its full set of accessories including an undated guarantee card stamped by a local Hong Kong retailer.

  • Artist Biography

    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.
