Rolex is not only a luxury watch brand but represents a kind of the lifestyle. As an iconic representative of the milestone of field, status, quality and value, Rolex is a legend. No matter what concepts some brands instill in the luxury field, Rolex keeps its reputation without their influence. Let’s feel the glamour of the most popular watch of Rolex watches–Rolex Submariner watch.
Of the two watches, their difference is obvious-the magnifying lens aperture. Even though there is little difference in function, the fans care about the detailed variation, even their prices are different. Rolex Submariner watch starts a craze of the diving watch, and a diving watch also has been the most desirable timepiece all over the world. Rolex occupies a very big share in the diving watch field.
The Submariner Ref. 116610 is equipped with Caliber 3135 in-house which is modified from Caliber 3130 without the date display. With 31 jewels and 50-hour power reserve, Caliber 3135 is certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute. Rhodium plating makes the movement look lustrous and fine and protects it away from oxidation corrosion. Pay attention to the red gear made of Teflon. Thanks for it, the movement is durable and steady. It still works well, though the movement isn’t clean for several years. With Parachrom hairspring, polished processing,balance bridge and the advanced shock absorber, Caliber 3135 has excellent stability and high performance.
The first generation of Submariner watch was designed for a commercial diver in the 1950s. The modern Submariner watch inherited from the design for the appearance. The key to the success of the Submariner watch is to mix sporty and professional appearance together, such as iconic dials, luminescent coating, distinctive hands and the special hour marker at 12 O’clock. For decades, Rolex has been creating the detailed variation from the precious materials, luminescent materials, the size of hands and hour-markers to lugs, but the Submariner has stood the test of the time, a perfect timepiece.
904 L STAINLESS STEEL
For Rolex watch fans, they probably know something about 904L steel. So far, only Rolex among watch brands has used fully the material to manufacture watches; while many famous watch brands adopt 316L steel. Obviously the cost of 904L steel is higher than 316L steel, so many people question why 904L steel is so expensive. For a diving watch, there is no doubt that 904L steel extends better anti-corrosion. Besides, brushed and polished processing stands out their high-end craftsmanship of Rolex.
The rotating bezel can record 60-minute diving time, even funnier is that some people use the function to as a cooking time. What’s wonderful is that the dials in different colors are available. The updated version bracelet with the Glidelock can be adjusted according to different wrists.
