Reasons for Rolex Submariner’s Success

Since its introduction in 1954, the fake Rolex Submariner has been one of the most famous replica watches in the world. The journey, which spanned more than 60 years, has transformed it from the last word of a professional diver’s must-have kit into the ultimate symbol of muscular elegance and understatement luxury. 
To be considered a classic, it has to tick several boxes. It must capture the imagination, it must have a simple and timeless aesthetic — but most importantly, it must work — and keep working. Rolex’s manufacturing quality is unparalleled and their watch is one of the most reliable mechanical timepieces ever made.
When Rolex was first designed, it was supposed to be a diver’s watch. Rolex’s director at the time, Rene-Paul Jeanneret, a keen amateur diver, tested his new “tool sheet” with the help of legendary underwater pioneer Jacques Cousteau. The great water explorer, who wore an early Submariner throughout his oscar-winning film “The Silent World,” forever cemented the watch’s place in The World of underwater exploration.
Today’s Submariner are even stronger than when they were first built. The waterproof rating has been increased to 300 meters, and the internal movement is now equipped with Rolex’s blue parachute springs, which makes the iconic rolex replica diving watch more resistant to shock and temperature fluctuations. The modern Submariner watch is made of 904L stainless steel, while most other brands use 316L steel. Amazingly strong and corrosion resistant, 904L steel is normally used only in aerospace and chemical engineering sectors.
Between the indestructible movement and the most reliable cases in the replica watch industry, the iconic Rolex Submariner is a watch made for you to go through the toughest and most extreme conditions. Another characteristic of almost all classical designs is a degree of innovation. While the Submariner’s exterior design doesn’t change much over its 60-year history, Rolex’s classic diving watch adds some groundbreaking improvements over its lifetime.
The 3135 gemstone calibre was installed in 1988 and still works with modern Submariner watches. A highly accurate and durable movement, the cal. 3135 is a guarantee of the ultra-tough and iconic Rolex submarine diving watch. Given the Submariner’s current depth rating, Rolex has also upgraded the luminous materials used on the dial and hands. In the late 1990s, older radioactive tritium was replaced by a photoluminescent compound, ending the lume problem on Submariner because its half-life was over.
