Rolex replica Submariner No Data 114060

Anyone who knows me knows how far it is from buying a replica watches uk exclusively for investment reasons. It has become so common to buy one as a safe haven that watchmaking in general is progressively losing its credibility, losing the typical senselessness of those who buy something for pure pleasure. I respect those who buy a product because it represents a status symbol, or a safe haven, and God forbid. After all, we are not all enthusiasts and we don't necessarily have to be: that purchase serves to show authority, the achievement (or the ambition to achieve) a different social status or the willingness to make a safe investment.

How does my decision to buy a Rolex Submariner No Date with Cerachrom ceramic bezel fit into this discourse? The one in the photo, for the record, is my only Rolex, apart from a vintage Rolex Milgauss that I inherited. Have I also switched to the concept of status symbol, do I buy watches to speculate or do I continue to be a fan? I asked myself, and I thought I'd share why I made this choice, and why I chose the reference 114060; exactly as, for example, an auto industry journalist would do, sharing his feelings after buying a new car a few months ago. From an editorial point of view, then, I wrote about almost all Rolexes, but never about the Rolex Submariner, mine in this case, which represents the architect of the brand's modern success.

Before complicated Rolexes such as the Sky–Dweller or the Yacht–Master 2 hit the market and the collective madness was unleashed around the Rolex Daytona, Rolex Pepsi and Rolex Batman, the Rolex Submariner was the preferred choice of those approaching the brand: simple, sporty , underwater, but not too big, and equipped with that proverbial reliability which is one of the ingredients of the brand's success. When I was very young, in the booming baby-boom years, the Rolex Submariner was all the rage. In the 90s, on the threshold of the changeover from lira to euro, a Rolex Submariner was an excellent deal and, given the due proportions, it still is. Its history is intertwined with that of its GMT cousins, indeed the latter might not even have existed if the Submariner had not been invented first. In recent times, the Rolex Submariner is making a comeback in fashion, favored by the unavailability of the GMT Master 2.

Among the sports watches in steel below the ten thousand euro threshold, the Rolex Submariner No Date 114060 still has no formidable competitors, on the whole. He has such a strong image that he is considered the reference diver, and erroneously the first in history. For the record, the first commercial diving watch in history is, let us remember, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, but we are talking about David against Goliath in terms of volumes, and of very different products. The Oyster case and the crown with Triplock system undoubtedly represented an important novelty for the brand and sports watchmaking during the twentieth century, and Rolex understood before the others the importance of building everything in-house, adequately communicating its patents, capitalizing on every little or major innovation introduced.

Why did I choose the Rolex Submariner 114060 No Date?

I have long wanted to find out what it was like to have a fake rolex watches and the Rolex Submariner No Date embodies the diving watch in its original form, i.e. without frills, not for this rude. The first reason for buying a 114060 and not, for example, a 116610LN, is the absence of a date and magnifying lens: a price difference of one thousand euros which I struggle to understand and which aesthetically dirties the enviable cleanliness and symmetry of the dial of a No Date. As I write this, the demand for the No Data far exceeds that of the model with Data.
