A Classic Reinvisioned: Rolex Relaunches the ‘No-Date’ Submariner

Rolex reintroduced it's classic "no-date" Submariner at Baselworld this week. The watch, formally known as the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner (Ref. 114060), has many small enhancements that are hard to grasp by simply looking at the timeless design, which has barely evolved since it's introduction in 1953. The subtle but important changes include:

  • A new case with waterproof depth to 300 meters, 1,000 feet
  • A new virtually scratch-proof, corrosion-resistant ceramic bezel with improved luminescent display
  • The greatly enhanced so-called "Oysterlock" Rolex bracelet, which allows for fine adjustments without tools
  • Hour markers filled with a long-lasting "Chromalight" luminescent material that glows blue (see below)

Would you trade in your old Sub for this one?

  1. Would you trade in your old Sub for this one?
    If I had one, NO. Its not different enough. If I had the sort of money this is going to sell for and I did’nt own one, I’d buy it.
