Last year I wrote a review of the Rolex Submariner No Date Replica Watch here. That review was actually for the Rolex Submariner ref. 114060 (the model in this article) as well as the ref. 116610. What is the difference between these two models? Ask a “watch guy” what the best Rolex watch is and most of us will point to something in the “Oyster Professional” collection, such as a Submariner or GMT-Master (among others). Ask Rolex where most of their sales comes from, and they will tell you something completely different.
Having said that, brands like Rolex Submariner Replica Watch, Omega, and TAG Heuer – that do not strictly survive on sales from watch lovers – nevertheless continue to offer a large assortment of watches that greatly appeal to us. And if there is one watch that I can think of that equally appeals to the watch lover and the general public, it is the famous Rolex Submariner.
The good news is that when it comes to product, Rolex watches rarely let you down. If anyone asks me why Rolex is such a successful brand I often point out that “their products are actually really good.” Of course, Rolex doesn’t make every type of watch you want and isn’t the best at everything, but there is no denying that in addition to their enviable brand image, they made very good timepieces.
One of the ironies of Rolex is that the pieces most popular to watch lovers are not the pieces that Rolex sells the most of. From a business perspective, Rolex will share that Datejusts, especially women’s models with diamonds, are the most popular products in their collection. So yes, watch lovers and “the general public” have different watch tastes. That is something I’ve known for a long time, and perhaps something that I will explore more in the future.
The date. The ref 116610 is technically known as the Rolex Replica Watch, but since it is the more popular of the two models, frequently it is just called the Submariner, while the ref. 114060 is referred to as the Submariner “No Date” (which, like I said, is not an official name).
