WHICH ROLEX TO BUY? THE SUBMARINER VS. EXPLORER II

Image result for SUBMARINER VS. EXPLORER II

I’m not going to keep the mystery going here, but after I made my decision I talked to one of the consummate watch professionals whom I entrust for purchases, George Mayer over at Govberg Jewelers. Shortly after that I had my Explorer II on the wrist and I couldn’t be happier. However, the decision was tougher than I had imagined and, in an ideal world, I would have gotten both the Explorer II and the Submariner. Here, I’m going to attempt to objectively compare the two watches to help make this decision a little easier for anyone out there struggling with the same choice.

Fortunately, the Submariner and Explorer II are solid offerings that retain value but are reasonably easy to acquire. However, Rolex is constricting inventory more and more and an inevitable price increase down the road makes this a good time to pull the trigger on one of these pieces if you’ve seriously been considering it.

The first Rolex Submariner ref. 6204 watch arrived in 1953 and has gone on to become the most iconic dive watch in modern history, and one of the most iconic and ubiquitous luxury sports watches out there, period. Originally measuring 37mm wide, the Submariner was waterproof to 100 meters due to its Oyster case though in subsequent years this was improved to 200 meters (1,000 feet) of water resistance. Of course, when Sean Connery wore the Submariner as James Bond in 1962’s Dr. No, the watch was chiseled into the imagination of nearly every young man (and woman) who saw a 007 film through the years.

The Submariner has been an icon for decades, and the two most common models we see are the reference 16610 with aluminum bezel which was introduced back in 1989 and was in production until 2010. In 2010 we saw the introduction of the Submariner we are discussing here in the ref. 114060 as well as the date model ref. 116610. Updates that were made to the newer versions were: the most obvious inclusion of the Cerachrom (that’s Rolex for ceramic) bezel; superior Chromalight lume.

James Bond is the most famous wearer of the very first Rolex Submariner which had no date. He wore it in Dr. No, and the watch he had had no crown guard. We think it’s much older than the 5512. Today, you can get a nice Rolex Submariner 5512 for around $10,000 but if you pick a non-chrono which is the ref 5513 you can get it for around $4000-$5000 complete with papers and a box. Perhaps you can try checking your dad or grandpa’s drawers, maybe you’ll see one lying somewhere gathering dust.Our most loved vintage Rolex Submariner has a date feature, and it’s the reference 1680 model. It came out in 1967 when Rolex finally realized that the date window might come in handy for divers. This 1680 model is known as the Red Submariner. By the 1980s, the watchmaker began using sapphire crystals and eventually shifted to a newer kind of movement. They created a Submariner with the then highly sought after plexi crystal.

The latest Submariners carry plenty of the features of the older Submariner models and wearing them is a real pleasure. The ref 16610 is the one with stainless steel and a date but now there’s the all gold and bi-color watches and they have ceramic bezel, bulky lugs and enhanced clasp and bracelet.

The Green Submariner is a time limited edition to mark the collection’s 50th anniversary. But take note that Rolex is always known for being vague about years and production numbers so if you want to have the Green model it’s best to buy it now because at any time Rolex could stop its production.

The only way to know for sure is to take the watch into an Rolex authorized dealer or other high end watch shop and have them remove the case back and see what kind of movement is inside. That’s the only way to know for sure. The Two Tone Blue dial Submariners are a classic Rolex and are all but impossible to visually verify if one is real or not. Same for the Stainless Steel (SS) Black dial classic model 16610. You may not be able to tell a real one from a fake one unless you have the back removed and check the movement inside. If you’re going to try and buy a used Rolex Submariner on the internet, it is critical that you know who you are buying from.
