The History of the UK Cheap Rolex Submariner Replica Watches

The last time I bought a Rolex Submariner replica is already a few years ago. The then-current Submariner watch, reference 114060, has recently been replaced by the 124060.

Now, I don’t feel the urge to replace it with the new reference or add it, but it is about time that this article is amended with the latest references. Back in 2017, when I bought the watch, authorized dealers didn’t have the watch in stock. The situation didn’t exactly improve since then. Stainless steel case fake Rolex sports models are hot, it’s especially the Submariner that can count on a huge fanbase, worldwide.

The design of the Submariner 114060, and now black ceramic bezel fake Rolex Submariner 124060, is unmistakably Rolex, despite the size and use of modern materials such as ceramics. Compare the modern 114060 to the 1953 Rolex Submariner 6204 and you will immediately notice that these watches share the same DNA.

Diving Into Rolex Submariner
Owning and wearing a Rolex Submariner is one thing, but to dive into the history of this watch is quite a task. To make it somewhat easier for you, we hereby show you the history of the Submariner in a nutshell, including a table with most important references since 1953 till the current line-up of Submariner watches.

The Rolex Submariner is a watch with an interesting story. Introduced over 60 years ago, the current Rolex Submariner model (updated in 2010) is a product of a long history and development. The similarities are clearly visible while the innovations are as well. A ceramic bezel, masculine case and solid bracelet with an easy-to-adjust folding clasp meet all the requirements of a modern watch while the design goes back to 1953.
The First Rolex Submariner
The water-resistant Oyster-case with a screw-down crown and the self-winding movement replica Rolex Submariner for wristwatches are ingredients of the Rolex Submariner that we own to Rolex founder and president Hans Wilsdorf. He was a genius businessman and perhaps even a better marketeer. He was also known for his open mind regarding new ideas and cared about what his employees had to say. René-Paul Jeanneret, an experienced and valuable member of the board of directors was a passionate diver. It was this René-Paul Jeanneret that came with the idea of developing a watch that wasn’t only suitable for use in the water, but also as an elegant timepiece for everyday use.
The discussion about the use of such a timepiece in the existing collection was being held more than once, as the existing Rolex models at that time already were water-resistant and elegant. However, they were not the diving watch that René-Paul Jeanneret had in mind. Functional sports watches became an important topic and resulted since 1953 in watch collections with bold names like Turn-O-Graph, Explorer, Submariner, Milgauss, and GMT-Master. It made Rolex grow like never before and mastered in creating watches that are suitable for any type of environment or (sports) activity.
Submariner Predecessors
Water resistant watches were already in the Rolex collection since the early 1930s. In 1935, the Rolex catalog showed a 47mm cushion-shaped Oyster-case watch with reference 2533. It had a pocket watch movement inside, a Lépine hand-wound movement with a small seconds hand at 9 o’clock. It didn’t get any follow-up as there was no interest in watches with a huge case diameter like this. However, this cushion-shaped watch did pave the way for a partnership with Panerai. Back then, Panerai was an Italian Rolex dealer and specialized in diving equipment. The Panerai Radiomir models with cushion-shaped Oyster-cases with a Cortébert caliber movement supplied by Rolex inspired the Geneva company and gave them very useful feedback on divers watches. Most likely did it also gave useful input for Jeanneret’s Rolex Submariner.

Flying Since 1948: The IWC Replica Mark

As we await the arrival of a new year, we reflect on how much difference a year (or several) can make when comparing one watch to its predecessors.Dolcea.co.uk looks back on three iconic replica watches that demonstrates how a classic timepiece changes over time. Earlier this week we took a look at the Replica Rolex Submariner; today, we examine the IWC Replica Mark series.

What the Rolex Replica Submariner is to diving, the Replica IWC Mark series is to flying. The stark minimalism of this three-hand watch has its origin in the Mark 11 from 1948. IWC had introduced predecessor models in 1936 and 1945; their small seconds displays and the additional details on their dials gave them a dramatically different look from the later classics.

At the time the Mark 11 was introduced, simplicity was the order of the day. The Mark 11’s dial had two different designs for the luminous hands that showed the time on clearly marked hour and minutes tracks with luminous indexes at 3, 9, and 12 o’clock. The 36-mm steel case had an entirely brushed finish to prevent distracting reflections.

The Mark XII of 1994 followed the basic design codes of the Mark 11. As before, the case size was 36 mm. However, Roman numerals were now used for the “12” in the model name, a different font was used for the numerals on the dial and a date display was added. The new replica watches version now bore the name of the model and the word “Automatic” on the dial in addition to the name of the brand. This would continue on subsequent models, even though it disrupts somewhat the original, extremely clear layout of the dial.

The Mark XV followed in the year 2000. (The model numbers XIII and XIV were skipped since some think they are unlucky.) The case grew from 36 mm to 38 mm, which caused the date to shift closer to the center of the dial. To compensate for the larger case size, the indexes and hour markers were made thicker so the dial appeared to have the same proportions as the dial of the Mark XII.

The alterations to the Mark XVI made a big step forward: the case grew by only 1 mm, but the shape of the hands was changed to the broad sword shape, which, for the sake of legibility, is used on many pilots’ watches. This change made the new model look more like historical observation watches, but unfortunately it also made it look more like the vintage pilots’ watches made by other manufacturers. Another change was IWC’s return to the slimmer font seen on the dial of the original Mark 11. With the exception of the 4, all the numerals looked like those on the 1948 version.

On the path toward the current Mark XVII, the case gained 2 mm in size, now measuring 41 mm across, while the case shape and the appearance of the dial stayed basically the same. Unfortunately, only basically, since the addition of the elongated date window with its red arrow pointer meant that IWC abandoned the clean functionality of its earlier models. The new display is a design element that introduces an additional color to the dial, with the red triangle, but it does little else to contribute to the famous IWC replica watches model series.
