2021 Rolex Submariner White Gold & The Best Men's Watches For Watch Collectors

Contact tmosso@thewatchbox.com for pricing and availability; Either I have it, or I can get it!

Luxury preowned watches are on the agenda as Tim Mosso showcases the 2021 Rolex Submariner and a choice selection from WatchBox. The new Rolex Submariner is the 2021’s most anticipated watch. With summer in full swing, the iconic Rolex dive watch is ready to take the plunge in its opulent white gold form. Tim also showcases the Patek Nautilus 5711 in yellow gold, two Rolex Daytona chronographs, and the immortal Blancpain Fifty Fathoms for those who choose to dive sans Rolex.

Rolex launched its first white gold Submariner in 2008. Although prototypes existed prior to this date, the Submariner 116619LB was the public’s first chance to own a Sub in the discreet precious metal. For 2021, Rolex adds a new Submariner “Smurf” with a 41mm white gold case, gloss blue “Cerachrom” ceramic bezel insert, and a black lacquered dial that improves upon the color contrast of the 2008 Sub.

Naturally, the new Submariner retains the model line’s famous capabilities. With a water resistance of 300 meters and a unidirectional diving bezel, the latest Rolex Sub does justice to a family of divers dating back to 1953. The Oyster bracelet includes a deployant clasp with “Glidelock”; this system permits up to 20mm of total adjustment in sliding 2mm increments. Underwater, Rolex’s “Chromalight” luminescent paint emits its familiar blue glow while assuring visibility at depth.

Internally, Rolex upgrades the Submariner with a new manufacture caliber 3235. This automatic movement includes an extra 22 hours of power reserve for 70 hours in total. Stop seconds, a quickset date, and COSC Swiss chronometer certification remain from the previous generation. Rolex fits a free sprung balance with a full balance bridge for enhanced shock resistance, and the winding rotor now features a ball bearing instead of the previous – and more fragile – jeweled staff. Rolex tests each fully assembled Submariner to run better than -2/+2 seconds per day prior to leaving the factory in Geneva.

In addition to the Submariner, WatchBox here offers two outstanding Rolex Daytona chronographs. The first is the red-hot models 116500LN with steel case, a black ceramic bezel, and the white dial option. Our second Cosmograph is the rare yellow gold version with a full Oyster bracelet and a sunburst green metallic dial.

  1. Damn you Mosso! I am trying to narrow down my list of grail watches and then you come with this video! Damn you again for introducing some of the most beautiful watches to collect! Damn you lastly for making me have to prioritize which watch to purchase first! Truly outstanding content with great insight!

  2. @Tim how many Sinns do you think you have helped sell thus far? You’re the best unpaid brand ambassador I have ever come across. An absolute maven advocate! Sinn should feel very fortunate that you love their products so much. And the Saxonia Annual and JLC Duometre were both awesome! 🤩 (edit: didn’t wait until the end 😉… the VC tourbillon is just pure class, especially with the peripheral rotor wow!)

  3. I got to see, operate, and wear a JLC Duometre a Chronographe a few weeks back and became a believer. Truly a grail watch, and will be a 40 year present to myself.

  4. That 5711-j is a revalation, I don't lust after it but I admire the…elan, as you so effectivly put it.

  5. There is no doubt that a lot of "Indies" do have unmatched finish.(warning: the next sentence may be a trigger for G.F. fans). As I said, I am not questioning the quality, but sometimes I feel like these are a sort of stunt/show off watch. I mean, how many people do you see wearing them in line at the supermarket? I think it takes more talent to put that level of finish on a watch that you can actually wear without looking like a power ranger. Watches like the Datograph and the Patek 5170, that V.C. Tourbillion and so on.

  6. Wow! That nautilus on the white rubber strap!! That is how you know you have a truly timeless design. That strap and the dial fit so we'll, you could believe that was the original design. I would take that over a 5711,(of any kind, complications included) all day. Usually I don't do bombastic rubber strap statement peice watches. I hate that I like it so much.

  7. He said the gold Daytona is less common, meaning the stainless is not as scarce as people think it is…….. on the secondary market that is. Getting one from the AD is like winning a lotto ticket after you spent the cash prize for the same lotto.

  8. Somehow I don't think anyone would be too happy falling off their yacht -regardless of what watch they're wearing -but I will take that option any day!

  9. Relatively "mundane" Lange models in the middle of the show just casually blowing everything out of the water.

    That Franck Muller and the JLC were dope too.

    Ain't nobody should be paying that much for a Bell&Ross, they trippin'c

  10. Tim, on the Greubel Forsey, how come the running seconds and dead beat seconds weren't exactly synced up? It looked like the dead beat seconds were about 5 secs ahead of the running ones. Just curious. Great show!
