While we’re known for supplying superb mid vintage Sports Rolex models, from time to time we come across a later model that catches our eye and that’s what we have here – the Rolex Submariner 114060
In 2012, Rolex updated its classic Submariner model with the most dramatic change since the introduction of the 5512 / 5513 in the mid-1960’s with three major visual differences to the classic one – A new case design, a ceramic bezel, and a new ‘GlideLock’ Oyster bracelet.
You can see how the lugs on this new model protrude sideways past the bracelet links further than on previous models, making it wear a bit larger on the wrist and actually appear less tall than the classic one – it never feels clunky or heavy though.
On this model the aluminum bezel insert has been replaced with a ceramic Rolex compound called Cerachrom, which won’t scratch, fade or corrode and which has the numbers etched onto it in platinum – it’s a little less understated than the classic one and actually looks smarter, perhaps making this model a bit more multi-purpose.
The 114060 was superseded in 2020 by the 41mm 124060 and that has made unworn 114060s very desirable – this is one of the last 114060s ever made.
It was bought from an AD in January 2020 – the stickers have been removed by the AD but it appears that the watch has never been worn since – it is certainly unmarked. It is a genuine Full Set including everything that came with it from the AD including the full bracelet.
Just tested here and running perfectly as you would expect, it has almost four years of Rolex warranty left.
