Watch Series: Rolex Submariner

Today I want to share about my beloved no date Rolex Submariner reference 14060. This watch is so special to me for so many different reasons. I'll be the first to admit that for the longest time Rolex wasn't a brand that I really was into at all. I wrongfully viewed it as an older person's watch company for quite some time. I'll even admit that to this day there are definitely certain Rolex watches that don't appeal to me at all but the Rolex Submariner is one of my absolute favorite watches. This watch was my first Rolex and although I hope to one day have more Rolex pieces this watch is currently the only Rolex in my collection. I have so many fond memories that are associated with this piece. It's the watch I wear when I give my girls a bath or take them to the pool. It's the watch I wear almost always on all my travels and when I shoot most of my engagement and family sessions. The watch was designed to be a tool watch and I definitely treat it as so. From a design stand point, I love the simple and almost completely unchanged look of the no date sub. I prefer the reference 14060 or any of the older models to the current references that all have a ceramic bezel. The ceramic is more durable and won't scratch as easily as the metal bezel but I feel the glossy look of the ceramic bezel makes the watch look much more like a jewelry piece than the more utilitarian design of the original watch that I love so much. To top it off who doesn't love Mercedes hour hands and a lollipop running seconds hand. To this day, it's definitely one of the watches you will see on my wrist most frequently and I can't wait to watch the tritium dials patina over the next several years.
