Great review. And yes the Sub is just a classic beauty like a sunset. You can see it everyday but it is beautiful every time you see it. Awesome all around watch.

Do you still have all 16 Rolex pieces? If so the services must cost an arm and a leg :) Totally agree with your assessment of the no date Sub-C though, dial just looks so clean minus the cyclops... Definitely plan to add one to the collection at some point, but the no date has to get in line behind the Batman haha!

Excellent review. The sub no date is on my wish list, but probable won't be with the ceramic bezel unless I find one at a great price.

Great review. I'm seriously considering the 114060 No-Date SubC as my next purchase.

Thanks for the insights.

Avusblue, you have written this review so well that you appear to have convinced legions of readers to 'pull the trigger' on the SubC - and cost us all a small fortune (in a very, very good way!), and I plan to also join the SubC owner ranks later this year.

It's an achievement to come up with a different / unique take on a watch about which so very much has already been written, and with excellent photos also. Good to see your effort has struck a chord, even years later - thanks.

Very pleasant writing.

Same journey for me, 14060 tritium was my first Rolex, which i changed for a subc to get a more functionnal watch (chromalight at first).
No regrets as i keep a 16710 with black bezel for 5 digits nostalgy...

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. The no-date is my first Rolex and I feel all sorts of great when I wear it.

Awesome Review

I used this review in helping me make my decision on which Rolex to buy for as my first Rolex. I love the simplicity and elegant lines of the no date. I am looking forward to keeping this watch for many years and using it as the foundation for my Rolex collection. Cheers!

Since this thread was unburied, I also had not noticed the review. Very interesting.
I think it puts a lot of emphasis on the "mass produced" aspect tho, and gives the impression that the Sub C is totally made by automatic processes and machinery.

That does not seem to be the case. Rolex uses machines and automation for a lot of it (no other way to get accuracy and fine tolerances, as well as consistency) but a lot of it is requires hand work by humans. Applying dials, etc.

I purchased the 114060 for my 50th birthday last month to go with my GMT Master. I absolutely love it, it oozes quality and having been unsure which Submariner to go for I am glad I went with the Submariner rather than the Submariner date.

Great review, although I'm happy with my 14060M you've got me thinking but for now I'm staying on track to add a milgauss. Congrats!

As the original author of this prolific thread, it gives me great pleasure to see this review live on with 90,000 views and hundreds of replies. Thank you, all, for the kind remarks along the years since I wrote up the first post. Itís really a testimony to the intrinisic goodness of a great watch ó a true icon ó an enduring legacy: the Rolex Submariner. My 114060 SubC undoubtedly remains the most graceful, most highly crafted, most perfect object that I possess:



Cheers, and best regards, gentlemen!

May I ask, how does it compare to your 14060, sentimentalities aside

I agree with your take on the date. Although I don't mind the date I do think that without it looks fresh and clean.

If you had to choose one tool watch imho it would be the non date sub. The wife wears one .

Only just seen this great review, wish I had seen it earlier I would of purchased one earlier, as it is Iíve only had one for 2 months now, it sits proudly alongside my GMT 2c and I share wrist time between them both.
I canít think of any other watches that need to be in my collection now, as I have both of my boy hood dream pieces.
