The new vintage. The purest of them all. The Submariner icon. Rolex’s icon. There’s no wonder why the Rolex Submariner Ref. 14060 has become a sough-after watch for most watch appreciators.

 

Before Rolex introduced the ceramic 114060 in 2012, there was a time where things were made right. This time was when the 14060 was born.

 

Originally born in 1990, it was the successor to the legendary 5513 (introduced in 1962). In 1998, slight changes to the movement created the 3130 movements and gave it the “M” designation. In 2007, the 14060M became a certified chronometer which added 2 extra lines to the text.

 

The 14060 has a lot that evokes the spirit of the original Sub from 1954; it was the last 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.

 

The example presented here is in flawless condition. The black glossy dial is perfect, with no blemishes, spotting or stains (anything you might see is on the surface of the crystal) contrasting perfectly with the applied indices. The tritium lume has aged to a beautiful light vanilla color, matching with that on the hands and divers pearl.  It features a 2-liner no date dial, just as the original Subs from the early 50s. The unidirectional bezel is also mint. The stainless steel case is preserved in unpolished condition showing sharp factory chamfers.

 

It is running at COSC specs although service history is unknown.

 

It comes suited on the original 20mm Rolex Oyster 93150 bracelet stamped W9 with 501B endlinks and divers extension. It has hardly any stretch at all.

 

This one is presented in a full kit; original boxes, original guarantee papers (showing it was sold by a Spanish jeweler, country where we bought it from first owner, in 1996), translation leaflet, calendar, booklet, wallet and anchor.

 

Indeed, a beautiful watch with sporty yet classy looks perfect for any time and that will certainly keep seeing an increase in value over the next few years.
