This is Rolex’s biggest new Submariner this year.Without a doubt, it is one of the most important watches of the last century and one of the most iconic sports watches of all time.After more than half a year of waiting and speculation, Rolex finally released a new watch for 2020 on the morning of September 1, a new generation of Rolex 41mm Submariner replica. And not a new watch, but including calendarless, calendar; steel case, inter-gold, full gold, the entire Submariner series, all updated, a total of eight new models. Today, we have a look at the Rolex Submariner 41mm watch replica 124060, the long-awaited new material.
Left, the now-discontinued 114060 (40mm). Right, the new 124060 (41mm).
For the Submariner dial, Rolex has not made any overall design changes even though the sizes of things are tweaked a bit. We see a return to slightly smaller hour markers that pull away from the “maxi dial” look of the previous generation Submariner. It isn’t that one or the other is better but that Rolex has decided to once again look back in time, as opposed to imagining what the Submariner could evolve into. So, while the Submariner 124060 replica is gorgeous and represents the nicest Submariner package ever, it is nevertheless the very definition of ultra-conservative in its imagination toward evolving the line.
Just as nice as the Rolex Submariner watch copy “head” is the bracelet. Like the rest of the No Date Submariner, the bracelet has been redesigned even though it more or less looks identical in style to the previous three-link Oyster bracelet, which is one of the best metal watch bracelets on the market. The bracelet still has an Oysterlock folding safety clasp and the excellent size micro-adjusting Rolex Glidelock feature. The biggest news in my opinion for the updated Submariner bracelets is how closely the links fit together – making for an even more “gapless” look which is more high-end feeling and goes with the current high-popularity of “steel bracelet watches.”
As indicated in the name of the watch, the major update regarding the case concerns the diameter. For several decades, the Sub has measured 40mm across. Yet, a large number of customers were asking for an increased diameter and this year their requests have been met with the 124060 and its 41mm diameter. A minimal update for sure, however, the message is clear.
Beyond the increased size of the watch, there are many new things to see in the case of this new Submariner 41mm, most of them concerning shapes and proportions. One of the most characteristic features of the previous generation of Submariner was its so-called “super case”, with a squarish overall shape due to the large, robust lugs that almost follow the line of the casebands. In the same vein as multiple other updated Rolex watches, including the 43mm Sea-Dweller, the “super case” is gone and the new 124060 replica features more tapered lugs, which are thinner and more angled.
The second evolution regarding the proportions concerns the lug width, which has been increased from 20mm in the past to 21mm on the Submariner 124060 (these new proportions and design also concern the Submariner Date models). Finally, to give more consistency to the design, the crown guards have also been redesigned, and are now more angled than in the past.
The height of the case remains practically the same, around 12.5mm. Altogether, these updates create a watch that is more balanced, slightly more elegant and, surprisingly, that feels a bit more compact on the wrist despite the increased diameter.
The new Rolex Submariner 41mm watch copy feels slightly more compact on the wrist than its predecessor. The extra 1mm in diameter is almost imperceptible and the overall design has a bit more elegance.
The case of the 2020 Submariner, as you would guess from a modern Rolex, is made from Oystersteel – the internal name for 904L stainless steel. It is finished mostly with brushed surfaces, while the sides are polished. The crown is a so-called Triplock and the caseback is still solid steel and screwed. On top sits a flat sapphire crystal, which doesn’t feature anti-reflective coating – the norm for Rolex, and being flat, this isn’t too distracting. The case is, as usual, water-resistant to 300m or 1,000ft. And the execution, assembly and finishing are on par with all Rolex models… simply excellent.
Starting with the bezel, we have now a slightly larger diameter – to be consistent with the increased diameter. The unidirectional bezel is made of stainless steel with a knurled edge. The insert is made of black Cerachrom – the internal name for ceramic. The surface is polished and reflective, yet also scratch-resistant. The 60-minute scale remains the same as previous models, with a combination of batons and numerals for the tenth, as well as precise graduation for the first 15 minutes – crucial when diving.
The graduations are obtained by platinum PVD coating, giving the numerals and scale a luxurious appearance – the same process was already used on the past models. The bezel’s rotation operates with 120 clicks and feels, as expected, extremely precise and smooth at the same time – it oozes quality and robustness. A luminous pearl circled with 18k white gold is present at 12 o’clock.
The new in-house-made Caliber 3230 automatic movement is the “no date” version of the 3230 family and includes about three days of power reserve while operating at 4Hz (28,800 bph). The movement family features an instantaneous date adjustment window, which doesn’t actually matter for the purposes of this watch (because only other Submariners have a date window). Rolex continues to use their non-magneic Parachrom hairsprings. The movement is also COSC Chronometer-certified, as well as being classified by Rolex under its “Superlative Chronometer” rating which exceeds COSC and offers accuracy of plus/minus 2 seconds a day in many instances — that’s very good for a mechanical wristwatch.

I found this new reference number 124060 replica to be both beautiful and attractive. Sure, it’s a new flavor, but I’m not sure if I need to use them both. Rolex has done an admirable job making the new generation of Submariner’s make one of the best watches in the world even better, which should help continue the torch of Rolex’s Submariner legacy! Price for the replica Rolex Submariner 124060 watch is $8,100 USD.
