World-renowned for making the most practical, accurate and luxurious watches, Rolex has earned this honor.The history of Rolex began in 1905, when this great watch brand was founded by Wilsdorf with the original intention of designing the perfect watch. For more than a century, Rolex has remained true to the founder’s quest and to the tradition of the highest quality in Swiss watchmaking. Wilsdorf did change people’s perceptions, but he himself would not have imagined that today’s Rolex would create billions of dollars in value. If one had to choose the most iconic, popular and best-selling watch collection from the brand, it would be the replica Rolex Submariner collection.
The Rolex Submariner was born in 1953, or 1954 according to some, and Rolex did design the first Rolex Submariner watch in 1953, but the watch was officially launched in 1954. So both birth dates are correct. The Rolex Submariner was the first diving watch from this luxury watch brand and a water resistant watch designed for divers. Most importantly, this watch can be worn not only for diving, but its stylish appearance makes it equally suitable for everyday use. Its professionalism allows divers to keep track of accurate immersion times, and the 60-minute dive bezel measures exactly how long they’ve been underwater and when they need to surface. As of today, the Submariner has been in development for 68 years, so let’s take a look at the 4 best selling replica Rolex Submariner watches (in chronological order).

The replica Rolex Submariner 16610 began production in 1989 and was discontinued in 2010. The watch size of this Rolex Submariner watch is still 40MM, but the crown and lugs are slimmer, so it looks smaller than modern Submariner men’s and women’s replica watches. Among the vintage Rolex Submariner watches, this is the best one to buy. Also, the Rolex Submariner 16610 is made of 904L stainless steel. The Oyster bracelet bracelet is folded link bracelet, so the weight of the watch is lighter. The most important thing is that the bezel is made of aluminum. In addition, the “holes” in the lugs of this watch have been removed, so both the bracelet and the strap can be easily switched. The best sellers of this model are the Rolex Submariner 16610 with its black bezel and the Rolex Submariner 16610LV Kermit with its green bezel and black dial. Moreover, the Ref. 16610LV Kermit is also a Submariner 50th anniversary model.

But both of these Rolex Submariner watches are quite popular. The case size of the Rolex Submariner Date 116610 remains the same at 40MM, but the lugs and crown have gotten larger. For this reason, the fatter Rolex Submariner 116610LV has earned the nickname “Hulk”. The hour markers and hands inside the dial are larger, hence the name “Maxi” dial. In addition, each Rolex Submariner Date 116610 fake watch is equipped with a ceramic bezel. This new bezel is not only scratch-resistant, but also retains its luster so that it will always look like a new bezel.
Advantage: The ceramic bezel is the latest high tech in the Rolex brand and is worth buying. The scratch-resistant and glossy ceramic bezel is a more stylish watch. The upgraded bracelet extends the life of the watch. Whether it is the Rolex Submariner 116610 or the aforementioned Ref,16610, both best replica Rolex Submariner watches are equipped with the NO.3135 movement, which has a power reserve value of almost 50 hours.

In recent years, there have been so many people wearing the Rolex Submariner Date 116610 that you often see people wearing the same watch as you, which makes you lack individuality.
Rolex Submariner No-Date 114060 2012-2020

However, the Rolex Submariner No-Date has only one option, a black ceramic bezel with a black dial. It is called the “No-Date” Submariner because there is no date window in the dial. Also, because it lacks a date function, it is equipped with a different movement, the NO.3130 movement. This movement has the same power reserve value as the NO.3135 movement.
Advantage: Because the Rolex Submariner No-Date 114060 has no date window and no cyclops, it has a symmetrical beauty and is much cleaner. It also comes at a better price than the Submariner 116610.
