Ghost 1995 Rolex Submariner (Ref. 14060) "Frozen Dial"
The ref. 14060 Rolex Submariner was introduced in 1990 as the new and improved version of its long-running predecessor, the legendary 5513. The 14060 featured a number of improvements from the 5513, including an increased depth rating to 300m or 1000 ft, a sapphire crystal, a 904L stainless steel case, and the upgraded cal. 3000 Rolex movement. We believe the 14060 was designed with the purest in mind with a simple, no-nonsense design, and retaining a lot of the aesthetics and elements that make the earlier no-date Submariners so desirable and great.
The earlier 14060 Submariner examples feature tritium lume dials, which have become very desirable due to the vintage appeal and wonderful lume coloration changes than can happen. The tritium dials were replaced in 1999/1999 with super-luminova, making for a small 8-year production cycle for these Tritium 14060 models. The 14060 continued in production until 1999 when it was replaced by the 14060M reference.
The 14060 is, for many, the perfect cross between old and new. With modern advancements and a more classic design, the 14060 Rolex Submariner is a versatile wristwatch for pretty much every situation.
|Dial||Glossy Black W/ WG Surrounds "Frozen"|
|Bracelet||Rolex 93150 Oyster Bracelet W/ 501B End Pieces|
The excellent case retains thick, symmetrical lugs that exhibit minimal signs of use. The original bezel insert has achieved one of the most impressive and satisfying ghost patinas we've seen, evenly faded to a light grey/blue coloration while the numerals and tritium pearl remain fully intact. The case retains its original Rolex 93150 Oyster bracelet with 501B end piece that retains 12 links that shows almost no stretch and will fit up to a 7 3/4 inch wrist.
The stunning and original glossy black dial with white gold surround markers displays a subtle and uniform "frozen" patina that gives the dial a unique presence when caught in the right lighting. Apart from the desirable patina the dial exhibits no notable signs of age or damage and is in excellent overall condition. The tritium lume in the dial and hands match perfectly with no patina present, under U.V. light inspection the dial and hands display no degradation whatsoever.
None. The watch was recently serviced and is keeping time perfectly, backed by a 1-year warranty on accurate timekeeping.
