Sale price$0.00 USD

Straight Facts

The Rolex Submariner is a true icon - and the word icon does get thrown around a lot. If you were to ask 10 people to draw you their idea of a watch looks like - chances are they would draw or describe something that looks like a Rolex Submariner. It’s the dive watch of reference good/bad/indifferent there is no escaping it. Over its 70 year run there have been numerous changes made to the model, but this - the reference 114060 - is the end of the line for the 40mm Submariner Case, its ultimate evolution.

The direct DNA for this model dates to the reference 5513 which spanned almost 30 years of production (1962-1989) and underwent a series of changes that saw the earliest models born with gilt dials, and the last ones born with high-gloss dials with white gold surrounds. It marked the transition of the watch from vintage to modern-luxury-sport watch. Those later models, with white gold surround and gloss dials are the watches that laid the foundation for the 114060. The last reference to be 40mm, it still utilizes the high gloss dials with white gold surrounds that we first saw in the 1980s, but adds a ‘cerachrom’ ceramic bezel which uses precious metal dusting to create the graduated bezel and its subtle texture. When the 114060 was introduced it marked the start of the ‘maxi-case’ Submariner, where the lugs were beefed up to make the watch wear physically larger despite still being the same size as the previous watches. After this reference, Rolex moved to the current generation with a 41mm case - which has been met with mixed results from the public.

This watch is in truly outstanding condition with a flawless dial and lightly touched up case. It comes completed with all its boxes and papers from 2008 and is ready for decades of use and service to its new owner.

*Some marks or spots on the dial are reflections or dust on the crystal and are due to high intensity strobe lighting used while photographing. They are not actually on the watch or visible in natural lighting.
