2008 Rolex Submariner Ref 14060M, Boxed
About This Watch:
In 2007, the Rolex Submariner 14060M brought many changes and innovations to the Submariner model. Most notable is the COSC certification of the Calibre 3130 movement. This move created the need for four lines of text on the dial, adding the “Officially Certified Superlative Chronometer” text lines. Also introduced on the 14060M was the engraved rehaut, with both serial number, crown logo, and Rolex engraved throughout. With its classic no-date dial, 40mm size, and aluminum bezel insert, the 14060M brings everything loved about a vintage Submariner into a modern timepiece.
The History: The Rolex brand needs no introduction. Founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law, Alfred Davis, these visionary men set out to do what had not been successfully and reliably done before. Build a timepiece to be worn on the wrist that was both highly reliable, functional, durable, and stylish. Wilsdorf’s dream was to create a watch that could accompany its owner through all facets of life and withstand any environment. His innovative approach and high standards for quality re-shaped the watch industry as a whole. The Rolex name has become synonymous with quality, innovation, and elegance.
The Watch: The 14060M features a 40mm stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal and a unidirectional 120-click bezel with a black anodized aluminum insert. This reference features the engraved inner rehaut with Rolex text around the entirety of the rehaut, the Rolex crown at the 12 o’clock position, and the serial number at the 6 o’clock position. The gloss black no-date dial features dot and dash lumed hour markers with white gold surrounds and Mercedes-styled hands. Powered by the updated Calibre 3130 COSC-certified movement, the 14060M has a water resistance rating of 300 meters and a 48-hour power reserve.
The Details: This 2008 Rolex Submariner Ref 14060M appears to be unpolished, with a very sharp case. Wear consistent with the age of this timepiece is present on the case, lugs, and case back. The stainless steel 93150 bracelet is also in good condition, with some wear present, as visible in the photos. This timepiece includes outer and inner boxes, warranty card, guarantee booklet, certificate holder, owner's manual, serial number hang tag, chronometer hang tag, plastic bezel protector, and suede protector cloth.
