The New Tag Heuer Replica Rolex Explorer Available

During my holiday in Italy, I’ve missed the delivery of the new 39mm Rolex Explorer hitting the local authorized dealers. I’ve kept my eyes open in Italy (see this link), but aside from the new Tudor Heritage Chrono, there wasn’t much ‘new’ to see in the displays. The new best quality replica Submariner in black and green were already available before my holiday, and the green model surprised me in a positive manner I have to admit.

Anyway, when I got back last weekend, I immediately noticed the availability of the new Rolex Explorer ref. 214270 on some of my sponsor websites. There was also this private seller on the Dutch Rolex Forum offering a BNIB Rolex Explorer 39mm for just above 4K euro.

The picture above is a BNIB Explorer for sale at Precisionwatches, a great and reliable on-line dealer in The Netherlands. His price is 4400 euro, this is under list price (4550 euro).

This new model has – aside the size – a few differences compared to the original and to be discontinued swiss replica watch for Rolex Explorer 114270. Its movement is of a newer type, caliber 3132. It features a Parachrom hairspring with Breguet overcoil Paraflex shock absorbers. However, I don’t think most Rolex owners will (or do) care about the mechanics inside.

I love this watch, my wife has the original model (114270) and it looks great on her. The fact that this new model is 39mm, would make it suitable for me as well, but I wonder how fast I would be annoyed with the hands of this model. Rolex appearantly used the hands of the 36mm model, which are too short for this new version in my opinion.

Add a new summer look to your Rolex Swiss made watch!

South Florida.  The words evoke different things to different people.  To some, it means sun, fun and vacation.  To others, images of Scarface style hustlers, gangsters and drug dealers come to mind.  To me, it is simply home.  Make no mistake; South Florida is a melting pot of nationalities, professions (I use that word loosely), and moral fibers.  Amongst this stew, there lies the ocean and aside from the boating fun that it brings, it is also a rich fishing ground.   If you’d travel back in time with me to my childhood during the late 70’s, early 80’s in South Florida, you’d view a typical “SoFla” fast money phenomenon that, for a brief period before conservation laws kicked in, gave rise to the region’s newest nouveau riche: the swordfish fisherman.

You see, during this period, the swordfishing craze caught on en masse and before the fish became protected due to overfishing, South Florida’s commercial fisherman were longlining for these predators and turning their bounty into instant cash.   Amongst the many toys that these folks spent their truly hard earned money on, one purchase was overwhelmingly common: the best swiss replica Rolex Submariner watch uk online.  Rolexes have always been immensely popular in a showy South Florida as a sign of wealth; the sign that you’ve “made it” via one avenue or another.  In the case of the swordfisherman, the Sub may have been the flashy go-to choice, but the watch did need to stand up to the daily, or nightly in the case of swordfishing, rigors of the task.  Smacking into gunwales, scraping against big Penn reels, reaching into chummy bait buckets, chopping up squid or ballyhoo, and standing watch at whatever local bar were the likely daily tasks a Sub would see.

Oh, and let’s remember that with lobsters aplenty and other spearfishing targets, diving was also a typical activity for any South Floridian.  No, the Sub generally didn’t test its depth rating in South Florida, but it was tested.  I still recall seeing these watches on leather-skinned people and the pieces always stood out as looking incredibly large and rugged.  There was simply something about the Submariner that has stayed with me until today.

Fast-forward to 2011 before Christmas and your author was coming off a delayed 10-hour flight from Frankfurt to Houston.  Upon arrival, I did my best OJ Simpson Hertz commercial (you-tube it if you’re not familiar) through the massive airport to catch a small plane to Shreveport, Lousiana to see family.  Once I arrived and did the “family thing” for a couple days, my father and I set out on Christmas Eve to look at the two fantastic jewelers in the area.

I had not flown to the USA with any thoughts of buying a watch, but when you throw vacation, holiday cheer, being with my Dad and a decent year into the mix, you have the perfect recipe for bank account destruction.  I walked into Clarkes Jewelers and saw the Rolex Submariner 14060M.  I had seen this watch so many times before, and while I always wanted one; I never gave it much thought because it was eternally available.

Rolex Submariner 14060MIn 2010, in Basel, though, the Submariner Date had been replaced with the current maxi-cased, maxi-dialed, ceramic bezel version.  Despite the typical non-response from Rolex or its dealers, one could hear the tolling of a death knell for this version of the Submariner.  Perhaps I saw this as a last chance to buy (new) the direct offspring of the watch I remembered so clearly from my childhood.  After about 30 minutes of perfunctory hemming and hawing, the papers were signed and the Sub was mine.  Three months later at Basel, Rolex announced the inevitable and replaced the Submariner 14060M with the current maxi-dialed, maxi-cased, ceramic bezel version: the 114060.

Unlike the conservationists who stepped in to save the mighty swordfish, they’re just fine now thank you, Rolex killed off the last remaining sports model so directly tied to its past.  Now, exactly three years later, as I type this fireside on Christmas Eve, it seems like an appropriate time to give a retrospective on the Rolex Submariner 14060M.

The Rolex Submariner 14060M was the last of its kind.  There’s a lot here that evokes the spirit of the original Sub from 1954.  When it was retired in 2012, it was the last Rolex sport model to feature drilled through lug holes, a stamped bracelet clasp, stamped end links, and an aluminum bezel insert: all hallmarks of the original.

As information, it’s sibling, the 16610 Sub date was replaced in 2010 but even it lost its lug holes in 2003 and stamped end links in 2001.  For reference on the other “old line” sport models, the high quality replica Rolex Explorer 114270 uk was replaced in 2010, the Explorer II 16570 in 2011 and the GMT-II 16710 fell victim back in 2007.  Despite its vintage looks and feel, the Rolex Submariner 14060M was treated to hosts of upgrades during its lifetime.  Originally introduced in 1990 as the Rolex Submariner 14060, it was the successor to the legendary 5513 (introduced in 1962!!).

Rolex Submariner 14060MThe watch, with its 3000-series movement, brought in modern elements such as the sapphire crystal, applied indices and a unidirectional bezel.  It soldiered on until 1998 when slight changes to the movement created the 3130 movements and “M” designation.  In 2007, the Rolex Submariner 14060M became a certified chronometer, which added lines of text to the dial.

Rolex collectors are amongst the most particular in the world of watchdom.  I’d be foolish to try and convince anyone that the last Rolex Submariner 14060M models are any better or worse than their successors, predecessors, those with dates, etc.

What I am here to do is give you an impression of what it is like to wear this watch, own it, and why I find it significant.  Let’s start with the dial.  This is likely where the most controversy lies, as there are some who love all the text and many who cannot stand it. For me, it reminds me of the legendary chronometer rated 5512: aka the Steve McQueen Submariner.

Furthermore, the markers retain non-maxi size and the hands are also still diminutive.  Sans date, the dial obtains perfect symmetry.  A slight sideways glance reveals another controversial point to purists: the engraved rehaut.  Personally, it’s never bothered me and I am happy for another piece of anti-counterfeiting technology.

Rolex Submariner 14060MLet’s journey outside of the dial and take a look at the bezel.  This aluminum bezel is simply fantastic.  There is just something about the semi-matte finishing that contrasts so well with the gloss of the crystal and dial.  Add a shiny bezel, or ceramic for that matter, and the whole thing loses sharpness.  The simple lume pip with its surround just ices the cake.

Speaking of sharpness, the teeth on the bezel have knife-like serrations that ease function while adding detail to the overall package.   Slide right to the crown and its guards and you come to a tactical time-changer that looks large enough to be used with gloves.

Rolex Submariner 14060MThe crown guards, on the other hand, do their job without dominating the case like so many other designs from other brands and currently within the Rolex stable.  A side profile reveals an elegant case that is downright slim in today’s world.  The caseback is vault-like in its design with absolutely no engravings.

The lugs.  When I sat down to write this article, I thought about my favorite attributes of the Rolex Submariner 14060M and the lugs really speak to me.  While the previous details scream masculinity in a loud and bold way, I find that the elegance of the lugs serves to soften the overall blow.  The taper and proportionality to the case are absolutely, unequivocally perfect.  Yes, I know it’s 2014 and 40mm is not big anymore, but these lugs do such an effective job of bringing down the visual mass of this watch so that it can become, as some say, one of the only sport watches that can be worn from the depths directly into the boardroom.  Those lugs are elegant, beautifully finished and, yes, they are drilled.

Rolex Submariner 14060MDrilled lugs are of huge benefit for cleaning the watch but, more importantly, for those who wish to throw any number of straps on the Rolex Submariner 14060M.  I own other Subs amongst the two in these pictures, but the Rolex Submariner 14060M is the only one I’ve never worn on anything other than its bracelet.  Why?  Well, I am hiding in a bunker with a Kevlar vest to protect myself from the upcoming hate-comments because I love this bracelet and its clasp.  The bracelet is so light and comfortable with incredible polish on its sides.  Coming to the clasp, I think it looks amazing.  The link finishing stamped into the clasp is iconic and is one clear sign that brings me back to those childhood memories.  It is massive and business-like; just compare it to a later, similar clasp used on the discount fake Rolex GMT-II 16710 to see the difference.  The fold out wetsuit extension, which I have never used, is basically the same as on a piece I own from 40 years prior.  Sure, it’s stamped, and, yes, it is archaic, but it all clicks together soundly and I have never once had an issue of this clasp failing or springing open.

Rolex Submariner 14060M Rolex Submariner 14060M Rolex Submariner 14060MCapability-wise, a 300M depth rating takes care of all but the most serious divers.  Anything greater than 300M becomes bragging rights to the watchmaker or wearer.  This, of course, is aided by the famous Rolex trip-lock.  Other things to note are hacking, above average lume and a 48 hour power reserve.

What’s it like to wear a Rolex Submariner 14060M?  It’s funny to think that this was such a big, heavy watch not so long ago.  Now, it seems almost normal size-wise but still quite current.  Owing to the fact that this basic case design was made for so many years, it’s highly unlikely that it will go out of style any time soon, if ever.  I own many watches and try to rotate as often as possible to give my addiction a bit of credence.

Rolex Submariner 14060MThat being said, I find this watch on my wrist more often than not.  It simply works with everything attire-wise, has presence, and can go anywhere above or below sea level.  It fits under a dress shirt, hangs out well by the pool and goes with your favorite pair of jeans.  Three years in and the watch still looks amazingly new thanks to its impeccable finishing and rugged design.

Despite complaints from some about the accuracy, or lack thereof, of their Rolexes, this Sub keeps great time.  Oh, and one thing it has that newer swiss replica Rolexes lack is the lovable, trademark clattery, somewhat squeaky bracelet.  It’s not loud or annoying but it’s there; owners understand my comment.

Finding a Rolex Submariner 14060M is easy despite the fact that most consumers buy the Submariner Date.  Also, compared to other Submariner references, the chronometer rated version was produced for a relatively short period but they were still mass-produced.  They are available in all sorts of condition and pricing seems to range from about $5K to over $7K.  At the higher end, I think a lot of these are NOS and come from speculators who put them aside towards the end.

Personally, I’d find a barely used one and wear the heck out of it.  Also, there’s little reason to buy one without box and papers as it is still such a new watch.  While 14060M’s won’t be setting auction records any time soon, if ever, you can bet that they’ll likely appreciate over time.

Am I timepiece curmudgeon or simply sentimental?  Probably both, and maybe a bit of a contrarian as I tend to lean towards simple, non-date watches.  However, I’d like to think that I can recognize a fantastic piece of industrial design when I see one and the Rolex Submariner 14060M defines this.  Like a Speedmaster, the Sub is seen as a foundation piece for any collection.  Even if you do not harbor fond memories of Subs, I’d highly suggest that you try one on for size.  You’ll be able to look down at your wrist knowing you’re wearing a true modern classic, the last of the old line, while benefiting from its go-anywhere modern technology.

Monochrome Watches Reviews the Swiss ETA Rolex GMT-Master II “Pepsi Bezel”

When Rolex unveils a new watch, it does it fake rolex GMT exactly when it wants to do it. As we told you before, when we were guessing what the new Rolex watches for 2014 would be, Rolex can be even more secretive than the famous Swiss banks. Our guesses turned out to be pretty accurate, and one of the models that we were hoping to see was the new Rolex GMT-Master II with red/blue “Pepsi” bezel. However, The new “Pepsi” elicited some rather mixed emotions at Monochrome headquarters.Rolex GMT Master II Pepsi - reclining 1

At the moment that Rolex opened the windows of its Baselworld booth (which could easily serve as a large house or a huge, three-story boutique) — while the Monochrome-Watches team were attending the Tudor press conference and being presented the cool new Black Bay Blue — our colleague Mario, who was not present at Baselworld, sent us a text message with a link to the new Rolexes. Suspense, and then… YES… a Pepsi! But as quickly as the enthusiasm erupted, it faded away again. The reason for that was that Rolex decided to make its most desirable new watch in years in white gold.

Now, usually the metal used for a new timepiece is just journalistic jotting. However, when a watch is on our personal shopping list, the choice becomes an important factor and all journalistic “neutrality” vanishes. The white-gold GMT-Master II has a price tag that is 20,000 euros higher than the GMT-Master II 116710 BLNR that was introduced last year. We realized that we’ll have to put coins in our piggy bank for many more years, and won’t be able to buy the new Pepsi for “that life-changing event” later this year.

The new “Pepsi” does look very good, actually, pretty much exactly as we hoped it would look. What we hadn’t realized is that creating that blue/red bezel was rather difficult — in fact, you could easily label it ‘next to impossible’ — and that was the reason that Rolex hadn’t created fake rolex Masterpiece II the “Pepsi” bezel in Cerachrom before.Rolex GMT Master II Pepsi  - reclining 2

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT-Master II has been our favorite “multi-purpose” travel watch for a long time. There simply aren’t that many competitors when you think of its specifications. A) wears very comfortably; B) looks good with a suit and with a casual outfit; C) water-resistant and can actually be worn on the beach, in the sea, or in your hotel’s swimming pool; and D) its make is impeccable and solid. Just thinking of these qualifications, the only options that come to mind (and I hope you’ll forgive me for the ones I forget) are the Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Compressor Geographic, the Girard-Perregaux Traveller WW.TC, Patek Philippe’s Aquanaut Travel rolex replica Submariner Time and its new Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph and the Seamaster Planet Ocean GMT that Omega introduced last year (we’ll have a review for you in two weeks).


Antimagnetic Attraction: Testing the Rolex Milgauss

The updated version of the 1950s’ Rolex Milgauss replica uk is a hit among Rolex fans. Is this re-engineered classic, with its improved protection against magnetism, worth the wait? Writer Jens Koch and photographer Nik Schölzel find out in this watch test.

Magnetic fields are invisible and do not greatly affect the human body. Maybe that’s why we don’t think about them very much, even though our high-tech world is full of them, generated by all sorts of devices, from motors to loudspeakers. Unlike the people who wear them, however, mechanical watches are extremely susceptible to magnetic fields. When parts of a watch’s movement become magnetized, its rate accuracy is disturbed, causing frustration for its owner.Rolex Milgauss - caliber 3131

Rolex addressed this problem in the 1950s with the introduction of its Oyster Perpetual Milgauss model. The name comes from the French mille Gauss, referring to the watch’s protection from magnetic fields up to 1,000 gauss (named after physicist Karl Friedrich Gauss, a gauss is a unit for measuring the strength of a magnetic field). This level of magnetism, which corresponds to 0.1 Tesla or 80,000 vph, is 100 times higher than that of a typical horseshoe magnet. It would take levels such as those found in an MRI scanner to affect the watch’s functioning. After devoting considerable time and effort to the development of the recent reissue of the Milgauss, Rolex introduced it at the Baselworld watch fair in 2007. Its inner case, made of ferromagnetic material, shields the movement from magnetic fields and consists of only two parts: a container and another cover tightly screwed to it. The container encloses the movement laterally and on the dial side, while the back seals the movement side. To ensure that the movement would be shielded as much as possible, the designers allowed for only a bare minimum of openings in the dial and case. This is why there is no aperture for a date display, for example. There are only the necessary small openings for the winding stem and for the axles that anchor the hands. There are also two tiny holes for the screws that hold the dial. Most other watches with magnetic protection have an inner case with three parts, with the parts layered on top of one another rather than threaded together.

Rolex didn’t stop there; its engineers were determined to make additional modifications to prevent even minute amounts of magnetism from leaking into the movement. The result of this initiative was the blue Parachrom hairspring that appears in the Rolex Milgauss as well as other Rolex models such as the Daytona, the new GMT-Master II and the Yacht-Master II. It is made of a niobium-zirconium alloy with an oxide coating and remains completely unaffected by magnetic fields. It is also Sea Dweller rolex replica uk supposed to withstand shocks better than conventional hairsprings. (Click here to read WatchTime’s 2010 visit to the Rolex manufacturing facility in Bienne, Switzerland and learn more about how these Rolex-exclusive springs are made.) Additionally, the pallet fork and escape wheel are made of amorphous nickel-phosphorous, which is completely antimagnetic. Opening the solid, screw-down caseback reveals the second caseback made of soft iron. It can be opened with the same special wrench used for the outer caseback. This caseback is marked with a “B” with an arrow above it — the symbol for magnetic flux density — as an indication of its special function. (Interestingly, it is one of Rolex’s main competitors, Omega, that recently upped the ante on magnetism-resistant watches with the 2013 introduction of its Seamaster >1,500 Gauss, which uses even more antimagnetic materials in its movement.Rolex Milgauss - front

Ticking behind that caseback is the automatic Caliber 3131. It differs from its close relative, the 3130, which is used in the Explorer and the no-date version of the Submariner, only by these modified materials. Caliber 3130 is in turn based on the well-known Caliber 3135 that powers the Submariner and Datejust models. Some watchmakers view this Rolex manufacture caliber as the best automatic movement on the market, due to its robust design, which also permits very precise rate adjustment. For example, a stable balance bridge replaces the usual balance cock that features only one point of support. The endshake of the balance can be adjusted with two knurled screws. The Breguet overcoil of the hairspring also ensures precision in every position, as does the free-sprung balance using Microstella nuts. The red anodized reversers in the automatic module minimize friction. The only criticism we could level at the movement is that its rotor axle is set in a jeweled bearing rather than in a more modern ball bearing. Nevertheless, there are no known problems associated with this caliber. There is no caseback viewing window, so you’ll have to remove the caseback to see the nicely designed movement and its decorations. The classic Rolex rotor with cutouts and the automatic bridge are decorated with a sunburst finish. Other bridges have a perlage finish. Every bridge and plate is rhodium-plated and the edges are beveled and polished. The carefully polished screw heads are especially attractive.

The rate results for the new Rolex Milgauss were good, though they were not as precise as other Rolex watches that have undergone the same tests. They showed an average deviation of only +1.5 seconds per day on the timing machine, and a stable amplitude with no strong deviation between the vertical and horizontal positions. However, the greatest deviation between the positions, at seven seconds, was a rather imperfect result. When worn on the wrist the watch gained three seconds per day. Operating the Milgauss, however, is simplicity itself. The crown is easy to unscrew and has only two positions for winding and setting the hands. A hack mechanism keeps the balance and hands in place, enabling the wearer to set the watch to the second with precision. The logo and markings on the winding crown — a Rolex “crown” emblem with a dash below it —denotes the Twinlock crown, a departure from the Triplock crown of the Submariner, Sea-Dweller, and other Rolex Professional models. At 7 mm this crown is considerably fake rolex Submariner larger and easier to grasp than the crowns on other, similar watches. Download the full review here.
