The watchmaking world changed forever in 1954. It was the year Rolex revolutionized the watch industry with the release of the Rolex Submariner. It was the Submariner that forced the watchmaking world to create rugged and durable tool replica swiss watches with practical applications. As it happens, the current Submariner, the iconic look and feel of the Rolex Submariner 41mm, is almost identical to the first Submariner produced. Over the years, many have tried to replicate what the Rolex Submariner has achieved, but have failed to do so.
For our review of the Rolex Submariner, we are writing from the perspective of an owner. I personally purchased the Rolex Submariner 126610LV from a representative of my local authorized dealer, Reis Nicholes, and it was my Rolex Submariner that served as the inspiration for this article and prompted me to write about my personal experience with it.
For years, I have argued against the notion that the Rolex Submariner is the best dive watch on the market. It is by no means the most technically advanced, and for a three-handed dive cheap replica watches, it doesn’t have more specs than competing dive watches that cost half as much. It wasn’t until I wore the Rolex Submariner on my wrist for a few days that my mind was changed.
There is something special about the Rolex Submariner. It is a feeling, not something that can be quantified. After experiencing ownership in person and wearing it under normal conditions, I can’t help but think the Submariner is perfect in every way. The size is great, the Oyster strap is comfortable on the wrist, the readability is excellent, the accuracy is great, and I feel confident wearing it.
When I refer to “confidence”, I’m not referring to status or wealth. This feeling of confidence has to do with my belief that the Rolex Submariner is perfectly functional and can handle any challenge I can put it through. Much of this feeling is what I attribute to the overall success of the Submariner. Not long ago, Rolex was known primarily as a tool watch rather than a luxury watch brand. As the brand has transitioned into the luxury segment, they have done a great job of maintaining the product strength that has propelled them to their current position.
