Rolex’s dive watches are highly sought after. It’s no wonder that Rolex has such an exciting history, many noteworthy collaborations, unique designs, and powerful, precise internal movements. We explore the various models in this feature.
Rolex currently produces some different dive watch models: the Submariner and Submariner Date, the Sea-Dweller, and the Deepsea. The Submariner and Submariner Date have the same case size. Almost all of the watches in the collection are available in versions with different materials, dials and bezel colors. The Submariner without the date is the entry-level piece. Introduced in 1953, the Submariner was Rolex’s first dive watch. At the time, it had a bi-directional rotating bezel for measuring dive time. Initially, the Submariner was water-resistant to 100 meters, but by 1954 Rolex had increased that level to 200 meters. In 1955, the British Royal Navy began using the Submariner as its official dive watch, and the Royal Canadian Navy followed suit the following year.
In 1927, Rolex first became known for its water-resistant watches with patented screw-down crowns, and the clever Oyster name was an effective marketing tool. During the more than 15 hours that Mercedes Glaze attempted to swim the English Channel, she wore a Rolex water-resistant watch that stood the test of time. Rolex advertised the event on the front page of London’s Daily Mail newspaper, earning great acclaim for the watch.
Rolex also developed a special deep-sea watch for exploring the depths of the ocean. Between 1953 and 1960, it participated in a number of sea expeditions, attached to the outer hull of a Submarine. In 1960, Jacques Piccard and Don Walsh manned their submarine Trieste to dive to the Mariana Trench, at a depth of 10,916 meters, which was just a few meters short of the deepest point of the ocean. The Deep Sea Special survived unscathed. Although this model was built several times, it never went into mass production. Due to the use of a hemispherical crystal and an overall height of 35mm, it was still too large to be considered wearable.
We were able to put the Rolex Milgauss, designed specifically for scientists and engineers, in the same category as the air-king — among the brand’s second-tier, less fashionable models. But recently, its new look, impressive antimagnetic capabilities and the fact that it is one of those replica watches that have more or less taken root have attracted a growing number of admirers.
First manufactured in that company heyday of the 1950s, the Milgauss was made in the same era as the Submariner, GMT-Master, Explorer, and Day-Date. As a result, it has traditionally been left in their collective shadow, so much so that it was actually discontinued totally in 1988, ending with the ref. 1019. A large number of people think that we would never see the Milgauss again, but in 2007, and to coincide with the opening of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Rolex reintroduced the watch with the ref. 116400.
Now with a case diameter of 40mm for the first time, the current Milgauss benefits from many colorful modern elements, but it retains its characteristic resistance to electromagnetic fields of up to 1,000 gauss. The update was originally issued in three versions: black and white dial editions were fitted with a standard clear sapphire, while a second black dial piece (the ref. 116400GV, with ‘GV’ standing for Glace Verte) was given a green-tinted crystal. All three proved especially welcome with fans and started the Milgauss’s climb towards its current popularity, with the GV model really capturing the imagination.
In 2014, Rolex replaced the black and white dial with a transparent sapphire crystal (which could further drive up its price in the future) with a second green sapphire dial, this time electric blue. It was named Z-blue dial and its blend of colors, including a bright orange lightning bolt second hand and minute track, makes it one of the most vivid watches in the entire professional watch series.
Different from the other two used fake rolex watches on our list, the ref. 116400 is still in production (excluding the versions with clear crystals), but there are rumors that cosmetic surgery is on the way. When this happens, you can expect the demand for the current reference to increase, possibly across all versions. Until then, it had been undervalued on the second-hand market, and it was an excellent watch, with some wonderfully quirky touches, and relatively cheap compared to most contemporary Rolex watches — at least for now.
There are many reasons as to exactly why the Rolex Day-Date makes such an enticing pre-owned purchase. The first and foremost is usability. Different from most of their steel motion models, Rolex has never really restricted the supply of the President to their retail network, which means those who want one have had some problems locating a new model. As a result, a significant number of Rolex presidential watches enter the secondary market quite frequently and retailers are not really lacking in pushing second-hand prices above retail prices.
Besides, the fake Rolex Day-Date’s stubborn choice of only precious metal construction is another explanation. The big majority of brand-new watches immediately depreciate the moment that you leave the store with them, with solid gold or platinum models often taking the largest hit in value. Since precious metal watches are much more expensive than stainless steel watches, there are far fewer buyers for them, resulting in significantly less demand in the second-hand market than in the less expensive stainless steel replica watches. This means you often have a great chance of finding a used Rolex CEO at a significant discount compared to the original retail price.
And thirdly, the Day-Date’s iconic aesthetics have to be taken into account. There have been several generations of the Rolex President over the last 60+ years. With the looks more or less cemented from the get-go, new references have generally been announced to introduce a noteworthy upgrade to the watch’s movement instead of any major outward design alterations.
Take a model from the original series and put it next to a modern example and you’ll see relatively small differences in style, despite the massive upgrades and improvements that have taken place over the past few years. So if you can get a used watch that’s indistinguishable from the latest model for a fraction of the price, why not?
Owing to their similar name, nearly identical style, there is often some confusion about the Rolex Datejust and date watch. While, since these two similar watches are considered to be different from the Rolex watch series, we will discuss the differences between Rolex dates to eliminate confusion.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the company, Rolex unveiled the Datejust in 1945 as the world’s first chronometer-rated wristwatch with a date window on the dial. The new replica Rolex was a collection of the brand’s other breakthrough innovations, such as waterproof oyster shells and a “permanent” mechanical movement that automatically wound. As a result, the fake watch’s official name is the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust.
Another novelty of the Datejust was its five-link bracelet design, which is called the Jubilee bracelet. The inaugural full yellow gold Datejust model combined a 36mm case with a fluted bezel and a Jubilee bracelet – design elements that are still popular within the modern Datejust collection even though the lineup has flourished with a vast assortment of different metal, bezel, bracelet, and size options.
The Rolex Date took part in the company’s catalog in the mid-1950s as a slightly smaller alternative to the Datejust. Rather than a 36mm Oyster case, the Oyster Perpetual Date watch sported a 34mm case housing a dial with a date window at 3 o’clock. Although there are a few other styles to choose from, such as pure gold, most of the early models were stainless steel with sleek borders and three-ring oyster bracelets.
Right off the bat, we see that the Rolex Date was not just a smaller iteration of the Datejust, but also a somewhat more casual option too. By the time Rolex launched the Date model, the Cyclops date magnification lens had already been introduced in 1953. The Cyclops bubble serves to magnify the date window by 2.5 times and it has become a fixture of all Datejust and Date watches since its inception.
While the first sizes of the Datejust and the Date were 36mm and 34mm, Rolex did add more size options to both collections over the years. For example, somewhat puzzlingly, Rolex has in the past produced the Lady-Datejust and the ladies’ Date with 26mm cases, and the mid-size Datejust and mid-size Date with 31mm case sizes. What’s more, Rolex has also ceased making the Lady-Datejust 26, replacing it with the Lady-Datejust 28. Also, over the course of the last decade, Rolex has also added larger options for the Datejust.
While there are some vintages and stop date 34 models in pure gold and varying shades of steel and gold, Rolex has simplified only two choices: all-steel or stainless steel platinum groove bezels, both with 34 mm cases and fitted oyster bracelets. Overall, the Rolex date is a smaller and simpler version of the replica Rolex date that just has fewer options from the factory, but offers almost the same features.
If you want to cook your steak perfectly medium, have kids race in the pool like Olympians, and set off fireworks on the night of July 4 — you need the right watch.
Of course, you don’t just need a fake watch with high precision. You need a completely patriotic one that fits the holiday. So, here we show some red, white and blue best replica watches that will look perfect for the holiday and work well.
There’s nothing more American than soda, making the blue and red “Pepsi” bezel on Rolex GMT-Master perfect for patriotic July 4 celebration. However, if you really know the story of this watch, you will know that the colors on the side actually come from Pan Am’s corporate colors: red and blue. In any case, the watch has real American roots, even though it’s made in Switzerland. Plus, it looks so good, there’s really no reason to wear this charming Rolex only on July 4.
Well, technically, the color of the Seamaster Planet Ocean Pyeongchang 2020 is the color of the South Korean flag — but for our purposes, the red, white and blue clock is equally patriotic to us Americans. This watch has a very unique one way bezel, blue ceramic with omega liquid metal diving scale and red rubber insert between 12 and 3, while blue rubber band with red details completely integrated into the sports appearance. Designed for Olympians, this replica rolex watch will be seamlessly worn at beaches, pools and barbecues on July 4.
Hamilton embodies the American spirit and Swiss precision. However, despite this, there are few red, white and blue mechanical watches to choose from in their catalogues. Still, I think this blue, maroon and white fake watch is a surprisingly subtle homage to the colors of our flag, perfect for those who don’t want something so straightforward. The dial has a traditional and classic feel, with a dark blue race strap in the middle, deep red and maroon on either side, and a white second line on the inside. Stainless steel bracelets enhance the look and, of course, make it feel more universal. I salute it.
Oversize, a bit rough around the edges, and in the color of our flag, the Breitling Superocean Automatic 44 is an American aesthetic, isn’t it? With a 44mm screen and proudly worn on the wrist, the blue dial and its matching bezel form a whole, but do not exceed the top of the dial. The white numbers really glittered on the dial, with only a drop of red visible, sitting at the bottom of the sweeping second hand. This small detail makes it a holiday symbol rather than a direct one. You can buy a replica watch with a stainless steel strap, or pair it with my favorite blue rubber, because this diving watch is fun and practical.
Same treatment has been applied on the hour hand, which is now a little bit longer. Both hands are also slightly larger. If the day-time look will remain close, it will on the other hand bring a better legibility in low light conditions – then again with the idea of a more rational display in mind. Both were too short compared to the dial and mainly, the minute hand was not relevant, as the tip of the hand wasn’t touching the minute track.

However, this diameter remains reasonable and elegant enough – and after a few years, people get used to these 3 extra millimeters. For this 2016 edition of Baselworld, fans of Rolex are – with good reasons – mainly focusing on the introduction of a new Daytona in steel, now with a black ceramic bezel. The main problem that collectors saw with this reworked Explorer 1 was the size of the hands. However, there’s more from Rolex to this year (in fact, there’s a lot).

Some collectors complained about the increased size of the Cheap Fake Rolex Explorer, when it moved from 36mm to 39mm with the ref. 214270. Overall, even if the dial looses some lightness with these fatter hands, it also becomes more convenient and more rational, as the hands are now long enough for the diameter of the dial. It also is guaranteed for 5 years.

The second evolution concerns the iconic 3 – 6 – 9 indexes – certainly the most important part of the Explorer – that are now also coated with blue Chromalight luminous material, just like the rest of the indexes and the hands (as a reminder, the previous edition of the Rolex Explorer 214270 was featuring plain steel, polished 3 – 6 – 9 indexes). Those movements were decorated with Geneva stripes exactly like a mechanical Rolex movement; they featured 11 jewels. In the mid-1980s, the Fake Watches Rolex For Sale quartz movements were thoroughly redesigned and modernized.

The rest of the watch remains similar, meaning that the 2016 Fake Rolex Explorer 214270 Watches still features its 39mm Oyster case, in 904L stainless steel, water resistant to 100m, with flat and polished bezel and a 3-link Oyster bracelet with brushed surfaces and the Oysterlock clasp, with Easylink adjustment. But this watch is somehow the proof that even Replica Watches For Sale can admit their mistakes. Price: 5,900 Euros (same price as the previous edition).
Finally – and this shouldn’t be underestimated – the 2016 Rolex Explorer 214270 features the same improvements than the 2016 Rolex Daytona in terms of precision of the movement, meaning that it has the Superlative Chronometer certification, done in-house by Rolex and with stricter criteria (-2/+2 seconds per day).
_Rolex Explorer 214270
Replica Watches will indeed discreetly correct some of the aspects people complained about on the Rolex Explorer 214270 (the 39mm with 3-hands), mainly focusing on a more relevant display. New hands, new indexes, all with improved proportions; this is what you’ll have with the 2016 Rolex Explorer 214270. And here is our hands-on. Overall, we’re talking minor but intelligent improvements. Certainly, the 2016 Rolex Explorer still is an Explorer, with its timeless appeal, its superlative comfort on the wrist and its iconic dial, which just feels more rational than ever… and as for the look of the new hands, we’ll let you judge if you prefer the new ones or the older ones.
