Hands on With The Rolex Submariner 14060M Cosc 4 Liner

Posted on

Hands on With The Rolex Submariner 14060M Cosc 4 Liner, this model now a discontinued piece from 2012, a future collector piece in my opinion was in theory face lift version of the original 14060 which was in-production for 20 years.

The 4 liner its named by collectors as the old version was not a Cosc certified watch and only 2 lines of text on the dial not 4,  and this one was Cosc rated with 4 lines of text.  A Cosc rated watch stands for short Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres was a company formed in 1973 to certify accuracy of watch movements for Swiss watch brands i.e. Rolex, Patek, breitling, They basically certify watches to meet criteria’s on time keeping per day. One of the criteria the watch needed was to maintain time accuracy to within plus 6 seconds and minus 4 seconds in a set time period also in different conditions and position etc…

The 4 liner was still a classic divers piece same as the old Rolex Submariner 14060 in most ways, water resistant to 300m, they did add the rehaut Rolex Rolex Rolex engraving round the inner bezel ring as you can see in the picture above also  added 4 line text on the dial. The old one just had 2 line text Submariner and water rating.

The watch size is still 40mm and is the true classic to the original James Bond watch Rolex 5513 which we all know and love. The 4 liner just like the old version but no date function which a lot of folk like. I personally always like the date and cyclops as I feel its the one of Rolex’s iconic feature and noticed. Sadly I let this one go a while back which will more than likely regret later on and since then they moved on in price to buy one!

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m

Posted on

The Omega Seamaster planet Ocean 600m co axial reference 232.30.42.21.01.002 this is a current model on the market which is 42mm in size and comes in 45mm too.  The Omega has a calibre 8500 co axial movement bulletproof in-house movement by Omega.  The orange bezel always stands out as a Omega planet ocean and is very distinctive to a watch enthusiast I have always notice them on the folk wrists in passing.

The orange bezel as most people think it is made of ceramic like most of Omega current models, that is not quite correct unfortunately Omega could not get it right manufacturing ceramic bezel with the orange so they sacked the idea.  The black version of the same watch are ceramic thou, do love the planet ocean with orange bezel water resistant to 600m with stunning see through caseback always a nice touch with many swiss watches although cannot actually see the caseback on the wrist.

Omega has scratch resistant sapphire crystal and the finish of the watch is brushed steel with polished shoulders a tad heavy the watch is, the chronograph versions are very heavy indeed. Overhaul the Omega seamaster planet is well respected great everyday watch and great value on the used market and I think if you love watches you after to try one.

The Omega Planet Ocean XL Ceramic 232.30.46.21.01.001

As the title says Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean XL Ceramic Bezel 45.5mm in stainless steel, a great big feeling timepiece much nicer to the predecessor non ceramic version with the bonus of a see through caseback with a few other tweaks.  This houses a cal 8500 co axial movement which looks a stunner through the sapphire crystal and is water resistant to 600m so it is definitely a true divers watch.

The sapphire glass has anti reflection coating which is nice to stop the glare of the sun but a pain when you scratch the coating, the rotating ceramic bezel is very nice finish, as all the watch companies have gone down the ceramic bezel route looks beautiful and hard wearing to boot.

The watch has the date function at 3pm and they do this model in a few different models and great everyday watch not to expensive either and very popular heavy watch on the wrist with the bonus of a good second hand market value. The dial is very nice with the big massive hands with plenty of luminova that glow very bright in the dark. A great piece that everyone should have or try if you are watch fanatic.
