The Submariner was born in 1953. It is the world’s first water-resistant watch with a depth of 100 meters. It then added a patented three-locked crown to enhance the sealing of the case and increase the waterproof depth 300 meters. Very few people have access to Rolex’s oyster watch; only Rolex authorized retailers with the expertise and equipment can get this route. Today’s Watch House brings you a brief review of a Rolex Submariner watch. The official model of the watch is 116619LB.
The Oyster Perpetual Submarine is a sturdy example. The unique surface of the new Oyster case features a luminous large hour marker, a progressive rotating Cerachrom bezel and a solid link oyster bracelet. The new-generation submariner and submarine calendar watches are exactly the same as the original watches introduced in 1953. Regardless of whether you are on the sea floor or at a dinner party, the Submariner model is a model of durable, reliable and comfortable sports timepiece.
This watch is made of 18K white gold case and bracelet, with a diameter of 40 mm and a special blue dial design. The Chromalight display on the surface can ensure that the wearer can clearly read in the dark environment, and under the same brightness environment, the blue light can continue to shine for 8 hours, which is twice the time of ordinary fluorescent materials.
The triple buckle winding crown is a triple waterproof system designed for diving watches. Developed by Rolex, the triple-locked crown for submarines and other professional watch models is water-resistant to 300 meters, and it is waterproof to 3,900 meters for RolexDeepsea. This crown was first introduced in 1970. It consists of 10 different parts, all forged from extremely reliable materials. After the assembly is completed, the Oyster case can be completely closed, and the protection is comparable to that of a submarine door.
The Oyster bracelet is the embodiment of perfect shape, function, aesthetics and technology. This strap is equipped with an Oyster safety buckle to prevent accidental opening, and a Glidelock buckle that can be easily extended without using any tools. Even when wearing a wetsuit, you can still experience a stable and comfortable watch wearing experience.
The Oyster case has played a pivotal role in Rolex’s history. Because the case can be sealed like an oyster shell, it is named. With two major inventions, the screw-in case back and the screw-in waterproof winding crown, the watch can work perfectly in water.
The submersible model’s rotating outer ring is the main feature of the watch, and its 60-minute progressive scale allows divers to accurately calculate the diving time and decompression time. Cerachrom ring is made of special ceramic which is extremely hard, corrosion-resistant and scratch-resistant. Even in the dark environment, the zero-marked luminous material still ensures clear reading. The specially designed pit pattern on the outer ring makes it easy for the wearer to operate even when wearing gloves or in water.
Cerachrom ring and outer ring were launched in 2005. They are made by Rolex using extremely hard ceramics. Its excellent anti-erosion material helps prevent discoloration. The scratch-resistant outer ring is still intact even if it is exposed to ultraviolet rays or comes in contact with water or seawater containing chlorine. To engrav numbers and graduations on such a hard material, Rolex has developed a unique deposition technology that is coated with gold or platinum. It takes 40 man-hours to make each word circle, but Rolex is always striving for perfect design and excellent functions.
Inside the watch is a Rolex-made 3135 self-winding movement. Like all Rolex movements, the Calibre 3135 has also been certified by the Swiss Official Accreditation of Timepieces, which is specifically awarded to precision watches that have successfully passed the tests of the Swiss Precision Timepiece Testing Centre (COSC). These movements are equipped with Parachrom hairsprings to help resist impacts and temperature changes. Their construction is the same as all oyster movements, with unparalleled reliability.
In summary: To open this isolated sealed case, a torque of up to five Newton meters must be used. The back cover of all oyster cases can prevent the impact of collision, pressure, sand and water from the door to ensure the precise operation of the movement. At present, the watch is priced at 279,200 yuan in the Rolex store in Beijing Xidan Mall . Interested friends can go for more details.
