Boasting a robust build quality, spartan good looks and impressive water resistance, perfect replica Rolex‘s most popular tool watch has earned the respect of some of the world’s toughest naval units who have made it their official timekeeper. Need any more convincing? Then read on…
Swiss super clone Rolex UK fans were left bewildered at the 2023 edition of Watches & Wonders when the brand failed to unveil a single new Submariner. Wasn’t it exactly 70 years since the birth of this brand favourite?
Why weren’t they celebrating one of their most iconic replica watches for sale with the popping of champagne corks and a raft of updated models?
This is almost certainly because 1:1 replica Rolex UK regards the launch year of the Submariner as 1954, not 1953. Yes, the first prototypes were tested in 1953 but it wasn’t officially unveiled to the public until the Basel watch fair in 1954. Therefore, we can surely expect aaa quality fake Rolex to launch something exciting from the Submariner series in 2024, which will no doubt be accompanied by an avalanche of articles in the watch media about the history of this watch. For those who can’t wait until then, however, here’s the gist of it…
In the early 1950s, scuba diving was a growing sport and Rene-Paul Jeanneret, one of Swiss movement replica Rolex’s directors and a keen amateur diver himself, had the idea of making a watch that catered specifically for this sector.
By this time, best quality fake Rolex had already proved its water-proof credentials with the Oyster series. But Jeanneret had something more advanced in mind—a dive watch capable of going much deeper under water and featuring a rotating bezel with five-minute indications that could be set to show elapsed time.
With Rolex replica for sale founder Hans Wilsdorf’s blessing, a prototype was developed and tested by the Institute of Submarine Research in Cannes whose divers wore the watch on 132 dives—some as deep as 60 metres—in the western Mediterranean Sea. Having performed admirably on these dives, the watch was also tied to a line and lowered to a depth of 120 metres for one hour. The high quality fake Rolex surfaced intact.
Universally credited as the first dive watch water resistant to a depth of 100 metres, it still had stiff competition that very year from both Blancpain, whose bezel-equipped Fifty Fathoms is said to have influenced the cheap replica Rolex Submariner, and Zodiac’s Seawolf. The latter actually offered 200 metres of water resistance, which the Submariner had matched by the mid-1950s.
Less than a decade after its launch, the aaa quality fake Rolex Submariner received a huge publicity boost when a reference 6538 appeared on the wrist of James Bond (played by Sean Connery) in the first ever Bond film, Dr. No.
Omega may have a monopoly on Bond’s wristwear these days but for many people the Rolex Submariner fake online UK will always be the quintessential 007 watch, having been worn by every Bond actor from Connery to Timothy Dalton.
As a Royal Navy reserve commander as well as a spy, Bond’s choice of watch was apt. As early as the late 1950s the watch had been officially adopted by the British Royal Navy before being recognised for its qualities by other naval units around the world.
It was even selected in the 1970s by the NASA of the deep sea, the French diving agency COMEX.
COMEX needed a watch that could go deeper than ever before so collaborated with a number of watchmakers, including top quality replica Rolex UK, to make an even more resilient dive watch. The result was a Submariner with a helium escape valve in the case side to prevent destruction during decompression. These COMEX Rolex Submariners super clone paypal, most of which had the COMEX logo printed on the dial, now fetch up to $500,000.
