Rolex Submariner No Date 14060 Review

Rolex Submariner No Date 14060 Watch Review
  Let’s “dive” a little deeper into this lesser known dive watch and circle back. There are a number of reasons that make this the best watch for men. First, most realize that the Submariner is the most recognizable watch to the mass public, one reason being the magnifying cyclops on the crystal above the date. Because there is no date on this watch ref #14060, there is no cyclops. No cyclops means it will be a little less recognizable than it’s big brother (ref #16610). The no-date version still uses drilled lug holes, which has been abandoned by Rolex on other models. This brings a vintage feel to the watch, which many Rolex purists like. 
  It also happens to be one of the least expensive Rolex’s, not suggesting it is inexpensive though. Rolex uses their automatic 3130 movement, an in-house movement. This is a big deal, you will be hard pressed to find a true Swiss in-house movement at this price point. Most watches using an in-house movement start many thousands of dollars higher. Circling back, what you get for your hard earned money is a true classic, original design, uncluttered dial, versatile, in-house movement, robust watch that can be handed down for generations to come!

Pros - Iconic, timeless, rugged, classy, in-house movement

Consideration - If you like a date window, spend the extra $$$ to get ref# 16610
