Rolex watches are some of the finest pieces of elegance and luxury out there and it is no surprise that everyone wants one on his or her wrist. The reason for this is due to the good reputation that Rolex SA has maintained to have for over a century of its production. The quality that is possessed by these watches is jaw-dropping. Hence, so many replicas out there similar to Rolex watches. In this review, we are going to look at a vintage Classic Rolex Submariner Date Stainless Steel Black (Non-Ceramic) replica.
How many times have you come across a vintage watch? I guarantee you that very few people have the chance to even spot a vintage watch. The Rolex Submariner Classic is a gem in the diving world. Rolex has been producing water resistant watches a long time before the introduction of the Rolex Submariner series. However, these models were not suited for the tough life of diving. Rolex, therefore, created a series that would be completely suited for the sea diver. The watch had incredible abilities including being water-resistant to 300 meters deep water.
In this article, I am going to review a replica of the Classic Submariner. All the parts of this replica have been created to match the genuine in the ration 1:1 and you would not be disappointed in any bit. In fact, it will be very hard and even impossible to find out that this is a replica. Keep reading on to know more about this replica.
The Movement and Function
The Rolex Submariner Date Stainless Steel genuine is fitted with a Rolex 3135 caliber movement. This replica has a Swiss Clone Rolex 3135 movement. The latter functions like the genuine watch’s movement. Its design and functionality are similar. The movement is lubed five different PHE Swiss Oil Lubricants to ensure that your watch will need minimum maintenance during its lifetime. This movement has a smooth sweeping second hand. There are almost no hitches with this movement and the workmanship is just fine. It serves the purpose of replicating the genuine.
Just as the genuine watch, the replica has the hour, minute and second hands. It also features an automatic date feature with a rapid setting to make easy the process of initially setting the chronometer. It is further fitted with stop-seconds to enhance precision during time setting.
The function and movement of this watch are perfectly manufactured for the watch’s smooth functioning and I think you would not be having many complaints on this.
The replica’s model case is 40mm long at the diameter and is made from 904L steel. It has all the engravings and prints that the genuine watch has to make it authentic with correct sized fonts. The watch is further serialized accordingly and each has its own unique serial number.
The watch has an Oyster bracelet. This is traditional with Rolex watches. The bracelet is made from solid 904L Steel. This type of steel is the finest that is available in the world right now. It is both durable and resistant to corrosion and therefore has been used in the construction of high-quality technology devices and chemical containers. The steel is finished off by ClearDLC™ finish, which enhances its look to match the genuine. The bracelet is fitted with a folding Oysterlock safety clasp with a diver’s extension link. It prevents accidental opening of the clasp and the extension link allows you to adjust the bracelet.
The bezel is black in color and rotates in one direction but offers optimum functionality like the genuine watch. Divers can adjust it to help calculate time. You may not be a diver but this bezel will still work just fine for you.
The dial is black which enhances readability. The main idea behind the genuine watch’s black dial was to give it an identity among the Submariner series. This dial also has the new Chromalight display with long-lasting blue luminescence.
Just as the genuine watch, the replica has a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The crystal has the same magnification power as the genuine and it enhances the replica’s readability.
This is perhaps the most useful and significant feature of this replica. Watches that are resistant to 330 meters/ 1000 feet deep water are hard to come by. As I have mentioned severally before, this is a diver’s watch so the makers of this replica made sure they left nothing from the genuine watch’s functionality. It has a screw down crown and a Triplock system that enhances impermeability to water.
Conclusion in Classic Rolex Submariner Date Stainless Steel Black (Non-Ceramic) Replica
This watch is not only suitable for divers but you can still rock the office environment with it on your wrist. The efforts that have been taken to make it exactly like a genuine watch are remarkable and successful.
