  • Product Notes

    Much more than a tool watch, the Submariner has become an icon of both horology and style. With or without a date, it’s a timeless classic that Rolex has slowly and gently revised over the years, but is still as true to its DNA today as it was nearly 70 years ago. In 1959, the Sub went through its biggest transformation. Gone was the small 6mm crown and gone also was the large 8mm crown. Instead, the new twin-lock 7mm crown was introduced on reference 5512, a non-date Submariner that had new crown-guards. In the 1960s, Rolex introduced the 5513 fitted with the 1530 movement (which pretty quickly was changed to another non-chronometer movement the 1520). The 5513 outran the 5512 and had a staggering run of 27 years! The example here is the reference 14060, which was the successor to the 5513 in 1989 and whilst it maintained the aesthetics and character of the 5513 it was re-packaged for the new era of sport watches. Out went the scratch-prone acrylic crystal and in came a new flat sapphire glass. Rolex kept the steel bezel ring and aluminium insert, albeit a little bigger for the sapphire glass, but the watch featured a unidirectional bezel that was technically an improvement to the old spring washer system. The 14060 also heralded the arrival of the new 3000 series calibre, which utilised some of the new developments in calibre technology into which Rolex had invested a lot of research and development. This watch is powered by the chronometer rated calibre 3130 and is water resistant up to 300 meters. The 14060 is regarded as the last no date Sub with the classic Oyster case, before Rolex redesigned the watch.
