Diving Table Information
The robustness and functional design of the Rolex submarine replica watches quickly became iconic. With a neatly redesigned Oyster case, a unique dial with a large luminous hour markers, a rotatable Cerachrom bezel and a sturdy linked Oyster bracelet, the latest generation of Submariner and Submariner Date are exactly the same as the 1953 prototype.
18 CT GOLD
By operating its own exclusive foundry, Rolex has the unparalleled ability to cast the highest quality 18-carat gold alloy. Depending on the ratio of silver, copper, platinum or palladium added, different types of 18-carat gold can be obtained: yellow, pink or white. They are made only of the purest metals and are carefully examined in an in-house laboratory with state-of-the-art equipment, then gold is formed and shaped, while quality is attentive. Rolex’s commitment to excellence starts at the source.
The dial is a distinctive feature of Rolex watches, which is responsible for its identity and readability. Crafted from 18-carat gold hour markers to prevent discoloration, each Rolex dial is internally designed and manufactured, mainly by hand to ensure perfection
The oyster bracelet is a perfect alchemy of form and function, aesthetics and technology, and its design is both strong and comfortable. It is equipped with an Oysterlock clasp that prevents accidental opening, and a clever gliding lock that allows precise adjustment of the bracelet without using any tools and can be worn on comfortable wetsuits.
This model is equipped with a self-winding mechanical movement calibre 3135 which is fully developed and manufactured by Rolex. Like all Rolex permanent movements, the 3135 is a Swiss precision timepiece that was designed specifically for high-precision watches and has been successfully tested by the Swiss Official Testing Society for the Observatory (COSC). It is equipped with a Parachrom hairspring, which provides greater resistance to shock and temperature changes. Its architecture is the same as all Oyster watch movements, making it very reliable.
One-way rotatable surface
Submariner's rotatable bezel is a key feature of the watch. Its sculpted 60-minute scale allows divers to accurately and safely monitor the dive time and decompression stops. Made of hard, corrosion-resistant ceramics manufactured by Rolex, the Cerachrom baffle insert is virtually scratch-resistant. No matter how dark the environment is, the luminous capsule on the zero mark ensures readability. The knurled edges of the bezel are carefully designed to provide excellent grip underwater even with gloves.
