Many of watch lovers like comparing Rolex Submariner with Roles Deepsea. For exterior looking, the biggest difference between them is the cyclops lens over the date. Rolex Deepsea collection isn’t equipped with a cyclops lens over the date. For water resistant property, Rolex Deepsea collection has better advantages. The submariner was launched in 1953, and it built up its position in diver’s watch market soon. 14 years later, the Deepsea landed the market. It’s in 1967 that Rolex determined to cooperate with Comex company which specializes in undersea operations.Rolex offered to supply the Deepsea watches for Comex freely. Comex reflected its performance data under the sea constantly. To today, waterproof property of Rolex Deepsea collection has increased to 1220 meters. All in all, the Deepsea develops towards outstanding performance, and the Submariner is just a trendy product.
Many of us think that the Deepsea is the larger and thicker edition of the Submariner. From the above paragraph, we know there are differences on exterior looking and waterproof performance. Of the Deepsea diver’s models, reference 126660 with black dial is one of the most popular watches. With 3900-meter water resistance, Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller 126660 watch is far more excellent than many of diver’s watches. Come back to today’s topic. Next, I will compare Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller Men’s Watch Ref. 126660 with a top-grade replica. I commitment to use objective attitude to judge the two models. I hope the article will help you more or less.
1. As we all know, Rolex uses 904 L steel (Rolex calls it Oystersteel.) to produce steel watches. The kind of steel has outstanding property than the other kinds. Replica version was made of 316 L steel, the same as all-steel watches from luxury watch brands. It’s hard to tell their differences with naked eyes, unless you use a magnifying glass to watch them. There must be Weight error on their weight, but our wrists hardly feel that.
2. They have coincident thickness of sapphire crystal and fluted notches on the edge of bezel, but fluted notches of original edition are smaller.
3. Black ceramic bezel of the Deepsea Sea-Dweller 126660 watch has even closer shapes and color, full of matte feeling. The joint between the watch case and the watch bracelet is tight highly. Features of replica Deepsea 126660 watch fall a little behind the original. 3.For a 578-dollar replica watch, its advantages are visible.
4. As for crowns, the crowns of their crowns look different obviously. (replica clasp with a crown has such an issue.) The thickness and polishing treatment keep coincident with the original. As for case back, they have flawless consistency, perfect.
5. The clasp of the old Deepsea Sea-Dweller 126660 was engraved with sandblasted logo in black, but the detail has been changed into polished logo since it was displayed at 2016 SIHH. The replica logo on the clasp I’m introducing is made according to the latest edition.
6. By a comparison of luminescent effect, you cannot find their differences even if you use a magnifying lens.
7. Replica Rolex Deepsea Sea-Dweller Men’s Watch Ref. 126660 is equipped with Swiss ETA 2836-2, water resistant to >50 meters.
