These distinctive watches have maintained the classical features of Rolex. But many innovative elements have been added to the model. For example, this Rolex Submariner fake watch with black ceramic bezel looks more dynamic and special with the pink elements. On the other side, the all-black design makes it cool and unique too. The whole model is contradictory but harmonious.
The Rolex GMT-Master II and Submariner are both popular sporty watches currently. But which one is better? In fact, the performance of these two perfect copy watches is similar if you don’t have specific requirements. However, if you are a global traveler, it is of course the GMT is more suitable without any doubt.
From the appearance, the two popular models look similar too. In past, these two Rolex fake watches with Oystersteel cases are regarded as the instruments watches. Comparing to the Submariner, the GMT-Master is lighter and thinner, and the crown is smaller, making it more suitable for formal occasion than Submariner.
Since the bracelet of theblack and blue ceramic bezel imitation Rolex GMT-Master II has been changed to a Jubilee bracelet, they look quite different now. Then from the wearing comfort, GMT is better. Many watch fans may consider that the Submariner is more dynamic and much stronger, but after some time they will think the two-colored bezel GMT will be more eye-catching.
Rolex is the most famous watchmaker in Switzerland, and it is created by Hans Westdorf and British Davis in London. Referring to Rolex, many people Associate it with the precision, classic and robustness. The great accuracy and top quality have attracted lots of watch lovers. Here I will introduce two pieces of Rolex which are very popular in secondary market.
The fresh green of the Rolex Submariner copy with Oystersteel case is really eye-catching, drawing all the attention from the public easily. The rotatable bezel is the brand’s main feature and the Cerachrom is made from the special ceramic which is extremely robust, offering greater resistance to the corrosion and scratching.
The Daytona collection is the brand’s only chronograph collection. The white dial fake Rolex Daytona has been well-known by its accuracy and high performance. But you will never consider that the Daytona couldn’t be sold until Paul Newman wore it in the movie.
Rolex Submariner becomes more and more popular in recent years with its sporty appearance and reliability. Yellow gold, white gold, Oystersteel are always the materials that Rolex chose for this hot collection. However, Rolex has created a new model putting an additional different element on this iconic series of Rolex. Have you ever seen the Rolex Submariner fake watch with gemstones paved bezel? It is not the only amazing feature, while the case is quite different from other models.
The 40 mm Rolex imitation watch features a dark blue dial adorned with the iconic round hour markers and hands, which are contrasting to the blue background, allowing the wearers to read the time easily and clearly. 36 blue sapphires and 11 square-cut diamonds have been set on the bezel, besides that, a triangle diamond is paved at 12 o’clock position. As the Submariner is the tool model for diving, the first 9 sapphires also specially were light blue to indicate the decompression countdown.
There are 92 brilliant-cut diamonds paved on the lugs and two sides of the crown, sporting a distinctive look of noble and fascinating style. What everyone is surprised about is that Rolex doesn’t mark the depth of diving on the dial of the luxury knockoff watch like other models. How mysterious the new Submariner is.
Rolex must be the most outstanding brands of watchmaking with great performance on the auctions of timepieces in recent years. Especially the auction held last year, a piece of Paul Newman Daytona had been auctioned with a price of 120 million, which directly refreshed the record of King watch. However, brilliant copy Rolex on the auction is only a small part, but its collectors are numerous, so why do so many people like to collect Rolex?
Rolex is study and durable
It could be considered as a shiny symbol of Rolex as the original intention of the Rolex factory was to produce the most durable and reliable watches. Rolex has always been persisting this principle for many years. It is said that the timepieces more expensive than Rolex are not as durable as Rolex while the ones cheaper than Rolex have no opportunity to compare with it as gap is too big between them. It has ever been reported that a durable Rolex imitation watch can still operate normally when it is salvaged from the sea after 14 months.
Practicability of Rolex
As a luxury watch brand, Rolex’s with perfectly practicality. Almost all of the brand’s watches are created for specific purposes. For example, the Rolex Submariner fake with black dial is created for the diver, the GMT-Master is for the pilot or the global travelers or businessmen who often go abroad, keep tracking the time of two different time zones, the only chronograph version of the Daytona is specially designed for racers and so on. These watches are launched for a certain purpose, but now they have gradually become a daily watch that is suitable for many occasions.
Fidel Castro, the deceased Cuban leader, was captivated by Rolex. From many pictures, we have always seen the figures of Rolex on his wrist. In 1959, Fidel Castro held a news conference in Havana. Castro dressed in military uniform, wearing the luxury Rolex fake watches. Cigar and Rolex could be regarded as the symbol of Castro.
Cuba’s leaders visited the Soviet Union in April, 1963. Cuba and the Soviet Union had made an agreement to be long-term allies during the visit which was lasting 40 days. A picture that Castro met Khrushchev who was the leader of the Soviet Union was interesting. In the photo, Castro was smoking a cigar and on his wrist, they are Swiss Rolex imitation watches. Not one piece, but two.
One of them was the gold Rolex Day-Date knockoff, the other was black Rolex Submariner. Castro wore them on one wrist. It looked really cool. Why did Castro wear two watches? There were many different voices. Some one said he did that in order to see the times of Cuba and the Soviet Union simultaneously but others said he did that to salute to the Soviet Red Army who worn two pieces while he visited the Soviet Union.
