Rolex SUBMARINER Ref.114060 NoDATE

By TLex INTRODUCING the latest generation of Rolex Submariner AKA The Original Diver's watch. The new SUBMARINER Ref.114060 comes with a redesigned case, a Cerachrom bezel, blue lume and a new generation bracelet with Glidelock extension system. And for that quintessential clean look it is sans date . . .


From ROLEX The archetype of the divers' watch, the new Submariner sports a subtly redesigned case, a Cerachrom bezel and a new generation bracelet.


CERACHROM BEZEL The unidirectional rotatable 60-minute graduated bezel of this new Submariner is equipped with a black Cerachrom insert made of virtually scratchproof, non-fading, corrosion-resistant ceramic. The graduations are coated with a thin layer of platinum.


BLUE LUMINESCENCE The sleek black dial harbours large Chromalight hour markers and hands filled with luminescent material that emits a long-lasting blue glow. This exclusive display offers exceptional legibility in the dark.


THE ORIGINAL ORIGINAL DIVERS WATCH The Submariner is guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 300 metres (1,000 feet). The case is crafted from a solid block of particularly corrosion-resistant 904L steel.


TRIPLOCK CROWN The fluted case back is hermetically screwed down with a special tool exclusive to Rolex watchmakers. The winding crown, fitted with the Rolex Triplock triple waterproofness system, screws down securely against the case in a manner akin to a submarine's hatch. It is protected by a crown guard that is an integral part of the middle case.


GLIDELOCK EXTENSION SYSTEM The Submariner is now fitted with a solid-link Oyster bracelet in 904L steel. It features a new-generation Oysterlock safety clasp and Glidelock extension system. The ingenious system, located beneath the clasp, allows fine adjustments of the bracelet length in 2 mm increments for a total of approximately 20 mm – without using any tools. The Submariner can thus be worn over a diving suit up to 3 mm thick and provides additional comfort in any circumstance.
