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 and the modified 14060M were born.

 

Originally born in 1990 as the Rolex Submariner 14060, 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 14060M 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 contrasting perfectly with the applied indices. It features a 2-liner no date line, just as the original Subs from the early 50s. The unidirectional bezel is also completely perfect. The stainless steel case is in excellent condition showing sharp bevels.

It is running at COSC specs.

 

It comes suited on the original 20mm Rolex Oyster 93150 bracelet stamped DTB with 501B endlinks and divers extension.

 

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 to first owner), translation leaflet, calendar, booklets, 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.
