The Submarine has a glorious history, dating back to 1953 when Rolex decided to invent a revolutionary diving watch that had never been seen before. Equipped with an outstanding automatic motion and encapsulated in a legendary waterproof oyster shell, the Submarine offers extreme accuracy at 100 meters underwater. After 60 years of continuous innovation, the current Submarine design retains many classic aesthetic details of the first generation Submarine, as its style and beauty are truly timeless.
Rolex Submariner is a watch that exudes style and elegance. While it looks simple, it has an understated complexity that allows for a smooth transition between your daily companion and a sturdy sports watch. To top this amazing dial design gold and white luminescent hands have been added. At first glance, my watch appears to be identical to the original timepiece, but when you take a closer look you see that even if the markers are very nice, the 3 bluish sapphire markers aren’t actually sapphire. These appear to be blue coatings with gold Outlines. If you look closely, if you know a thing or two about these replica watches, the details are really depressing.
Two-tone Rolex is among my favorite timepieces and I just love the affordable yet luxurious allure they have due to their steel and gold finish. So it is really to surprise that I bought myself a fake Rolex Submariner watch with the notorious Serti dial. I am a huge fan of contrasts so I chose the silver dial to emphasize the two-tone band. If you are curious to know my thoughts on this watch continue reading my review.
Even though the bezel of my watch looks pretty nice, I am not very impressed with it. It has that beautiful blue color as the genuine watch has, but the yellow gold on the markers and indexes is not the same. On my watch, it is in a lighter and fader shade of yellow gold that under bright light has a very intense white reflection. Luckily, it has a couple of things right it rotates unidirectional as the real one does and it makes the same retching sound when you turn it.
Naturally, my watch isn’t equipped with the same type of movement. On the contrary, it comes with a 21 jewels Japanese automatic movement. It keeps pretty accurate time and the power reserve holds up for about a day or so. Overall, my replica Rolex Submariner 16613 Silver Serti is quite nice and it serves its purpose. It comes with a very good Japanese automatic movement; it has a nicely designed dial and bezel, correct size, and markings. It looks and feels real, though it has a few flaws. But to the untrained eye, it’s just a beautiful watch that works well.
