Who Is The “Uncrowned King” Of The Diving Watch World? Best Replica Rolex

Regarding diving watches, Rolex’s Submariner is the superstar in the eyes of watch fans. Few people know the name “Black Water Ghost.” For such a diving watch suitable for any occasion, it is not an exaggeration to say that nine out of ten people who buy Rolex are “ghosts.”

Perhaps the Rolex “Submariner” series once had an almost dominant position among diving watches. But times have changed, and robust diving watches from all walks of life are challenging the “Water Ghost” with new looks and technologies. Best replica Rolex.

Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe diving watch

The debate about who the earliest diving watch between Blancpain and Rolex is has continued. In 1953, Blancpain produced the brand’s first modern diving watch. Since that moment, Blancpain has been accompanying divers and underwater photographers on their expeditions to reveal the gorgeous ocean world.

The 50 Fathoms series of watches launched as early as 1953 has several significant patents across the ages, including a lockable graduated bezel for checking diving time and remaining oxygen storage; it is used to enhance the waterproofness of the case and is configured in a Double O-shaped sealing ring on the crown; an automatic winding function that reduces the number of manual twisting of the crown and reduces wear of the crown’s waterproof system, etc.

As a professional diving watch with a pure pedigree, the price range of the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms has been above 110,000 yuan for a long time. The price is nearly twice that of the “Black Water Ghost,” which is believed to make many people like the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms. People stay away. But this situation took a turn in 2013. The launch of the Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe watch completely broke the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms series’ threshold of 100,000 yuan.

The Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe watch has changed the case diameter from 45 mm to 43 mm. It also has a rich range of case materials, including stainless steel, ceramics, titanium, etc. The outline continues the precise style of the early 1965 model; the hands also adopt the traditional style of the old timepiece, and the date information is displayed in a dedicated aperture. It adopts the latest technology for liquid metal ceramic bezels. The inner ring of the bezel is made of ceramic material, and the scale is made of liquid metal. The hardness of liquid metal is three times that of stainless steel. Combined with ceramic, it is resistant to scratches and not easy to wear. The bezel design also retains the design features of the original Bathyscaphe style. The crystal-clear fluorescent punctuation ensures the readability of the diving timing information in any environment.

The movement continues to use Blancpain’s well-known Cal. 1315 movement. The silicon hairspring enhances the movement’s accuracy. It has a three-barrel series power combination that can provide 120 hours and an entire 5-day power reserve. The Cal.3135 movement of the “Water Ghost” series only has a 48-hour power reserve.

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m Diver Watch

Who is Rolex Submariner’s most significant competitor? Omega’s Seamaster undoubtedly deserves it, and the contest between the two that has lasted for decades has never stopped. Omega’s is more prosperous than Rolex’s three major diving watch series (Submariner, Sea-Dweller, and Deepseas). Seamaster Aqua Terra has 150 meters of water resistance, Seamaster 300 has 300 meters of water resistance, Planet Ocean has 600 meters of water resistance, and Seamaster Ploprof 1200 has 1200 meters of water resistance. Regarding price positioning, the Planet Ocean 600 is in the same price range as the Rolex Submariner.

Haima Planet Ocean 600m Diving Watch Two-Color Ceramic Bezel Model

As Omega’s flagship series in 2016, the new Planet Ocean 600 watch represents the most avant-garde style and cutting-edge technology of the Seamaster series. Judging from the appearance alone, the Planet Ocean 600 is more avant-garde than the “Water Ghost.” The large and vivid watch diameters of 43.5 and 45.5 mm and the addition of colored time scales and colored rubber materials on a single ceramic bezel are all. Make this watch more fashionable and sporty. The conspicuous helium escape valve at 10 o’clock on the case declares to the world that this is a watch with a diving depth exceeding that of the “Water Ghost.”

The new Planet Ocean 600 watch has Omega’s new Master Coaxial movement. The movement uses a silicon hairspring and a card-free 18K white gold weight fine-tuning balance wheel. The balance wheel and the barrel are all DLC treated, and the liquid metal avoids Zhen et al., who have assembled Omega’s most advanced technology. In addition, this movement is also equipped with Omega’s just-released Master Chronometer certification, which adds high magnetic field testing based on -4/+6 per day of traditional observatories and can withstand 15,000 Gauss antimagnetic capabilities. It can be said that it is not far behind the Cal.3135 movement of “Water Ghost.”

Omega’s price positioning is generally slightly lower than Rolex’s competing products, which is undoubtedly a significant threat. After all, the popularity of the two brands in China has long been deeply rooted in the people’s hearts.

IWC Aquatimer 2000 Diving Watch

A watch that costs only more than 60,000 yuan can synchronize time at a depth of 2,000 meters underwater. The IWC Aquatimer 2000 diving watch undoubtedly demonstrates its ambition.

The close relationship between IWC and diving can be traced back to the 1960s. The growing popularity of diving prompted IWC to launch its first marine clock in 1967, which was water-resistant to 20 bar and equipped with a rotating bezel to display the diving time. 

The case size of the new Aquatimer 2000 automatic watch is 46 mm. Such a large size has wholly surpassed the size of all Rolex diving watches. It can be said to be poison for those who pursue large-diameter watches. And you don’t have to worry about such a large watch falling on your wrist. It uses a titanium case and has reasonable quality control. Although this watch can dive to a depth of 2,000 meters, it does not have a helium escape valve. Swiss replica watches store.

Unlike other diving watches, the Aquatimer 2000 does not use an external rotating bezel, which avoids scratches and bumps on the external rotating bezel when worn. Instead, an innovative internal and external rotating bezel is used. This device combines the advantages of a rotating inner ring that meshes precisely every minute, such as adequate protection of the mechanism against the ingress of seawater and dirt, with the convenient operation of a rotating outer ring. This allows easy rotation even if the diver wears gloves or has cold fingers.

A clutch system connects the inner and outer rotating bezels. For safety reasons, the rotating inner ring can only rotate counterclockwise. In this way, even if the diver accidentally adjusts the bezel and incorrectly changes the marked departure time, the wrong time will only be earlier than the actual departure time, thus ensuring that the diving limit time will not be exceeded.

In addition, IWC Ocean Timepiece 2000 uses IWC’s own Cal.80110 self-winding movement, with IWC’s very famous Woodpecker Pellaton winding mechanism. Such massive innovation and affordable price make this watch the most powerful “Water Ghost” competitor.

Cartier Caleb diving watch

Born into a celebrity family, the Caliber Diving Watch is Cartier’s first professional diving watch and the first in the watch industry to focus on the ISO 6425 international standard.

Although the Calibo series, which came out in 2010, is a sports watch series that focuses on sports style, its inability to dive has always been a shortcoming of this series. Only with the launch of the Calibo diving watch in 2014 did this series compensate for this gap. 

With a one-way rotating bezel, water resistance up to 300 meters, and Superluminova luminous hands and hour markers, the Calibo diving watch meets all international standards for diving watches, so it is possible to engrave “Diver’s watch 300 m” on the back of the watch. 300 meters). One-way rotating bezel: To prevent accidental rotation or improper operation, the bezel can only rotate in one direction. Its 120-notch design (40 teeth and 3 points) allows the adjustment accuracy to be accurate to half a minute, and you can also hear a clear sound prompt when rotating. In addition, to further improve readability, time scales are used to mark each 5-minute interval.

The case’s thickness is only 11 mm, balancing size proportions and maintaining the watch’s comfort during daily wear. The watch perfectly combines the diving watch with Cartier’s exquisite watchmaking craftsmanship through the subtle contrast of frosted and polished treatments, the rotating bezel with a notched design, and the ADLC carbon coating (amorphous diamond-like carbon coating).

As a slightly smaller three-hand design among diving watches, the Caliber diving watch uses the Cartier Cal.1904MC self-winding movement. The movement is from the hands of Cartier watchmaker Carole, who is equipped with double barrels, but it is not designed to provide long-term operation. The power is to ensure that the mainspring torque can maintain excellent consistency for a long time, thereby pushing the stability of travel time to the extreme. This movement also has a sophisticated adjustment system and a stop-second mechanism to ideally adjust the travel time and ensure accuracy.

It inherits all the characteristics of the first Caliber de Cartier watch, which came out in 2010:

  • The same strong lines
  • The same solid case
  • The same refined self-winding mechanical movement refined by the 1904 MC workshop

The domestic public price of RMB 58,000 is the same as that of the “Water Ghost.” I have to say that this is indeed a strong competitor to the “Water Ghost.”

The Royal Oak Offshore series DIVER diving watch focuses on luxury sports style. Although the price of no less than 150,000 yuan is higher than that of the Rolex Submariner, its sporty, rugged appearance and excellent performance can still compete with the Submariner. One of the opponents.

The case is fixed with unique bottom cover screws, center bolts, and hexagonal screws, which are as safe as a submarine hatch. After tightening the crown again, the risk of accidentally changing the diving time can be prevented entirely. The case effectively protects the internal rotating mechanism from external influence.

This watch’s finely carved 22 K gold rotor, which uses Audemars Piguet’s Cal.3120 movement, highlights its extraordinary identity.

2014 is the year of Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak Offshore series of watches, and there are so many new products that it’s dizzying to see. The most outstanding is the Royal Oak Offshore series DIVER diving watch. The Royal Oak Offshore series DIVER diving watch is made of white ceramic material and has an exceptional appearance. It is impressive in appearance, but the white super ceramic used by Audemars Piguet makes this new diving watch’s bezel, case, buttons, and dial. The scratch resistance of the crown (Vickers hardness: 1850) is 40% higher than that of black ceramic (Vickers hardness: 1300) and nine times higher than that of stainless steel. Relatively, manufacturing is more complicated. An ordinary stainless steel watch case can be made in just one and a half hours, but white super ceramic takes nearly 12 hours, and the stainless steel bezel takes 45 minutes to make. , while the white super ceramic lasts up to 8 hours.

“Water Ghost” Cal.3235 movement

Throughout the history of Rolex’s Submariner, there has been almost no significant change in appearance, and its image has long been deeply rooted in the people’s hearts. Although facing challenges from many brand rivals, it is difficult to find the weaknesses of Rolex’s “Submariner” and give it a fatal blow. As for the shortcomings, perhaps the power reserve time of the Cal.3135 movement is only 48 hours, which is insufficient today when long-term power prevails. However, this shortcoming will be increased to 70 hours when the new “Water Ghost” replaces the latest Cal.3235 movement. This will not be long, considering Cal.3235 will be used on the new 41mm log in 2016. Speed, the new “water ghost,” is bound to come out within 2 to 3 years. A new war, let us wait and see.
