The new replica Rolex watches have the same 40mm width, but a slightly different shape of case and a new “maxi dial.” Like the other new Submariners and GMT Master II, the dial has larger hands and hour indicators. Plus, the lume should glow blue. Another wonderful addition to the steel Submariners is the ceramic bezel. Rolex calls it “Cerachrom,” and they do it probably better than anyone else. The ceramic has a beautiful tone and is very crisp-looking. Compared to the ceramic bezel on the GMT Master II, the Submariner bezels are a more of a matte finish.
A broader case looks elegant as ever and still thin. Even though the handsome fake Rolex Submariner is smaller at 40mm in size that most modern men’s watches, it still holds it own quite well. A bold wrist look that you just can’t beat. Don’t forget that the case is water resistant to 300 meters in this “original” mainstream true diver’s watch. The larger hands and indexes make the face easier to read and dare I say, more Rolexy. The case is not made of grade 316L steel, but rather the higher grade grade 904L steel that has all sorts of special chemical resistance abilities.
Green is a color that cheap copy Rolex is known for using in special models. The release of a new mainstream Submariner model is a special occasion. It is a substantial tone that isn’t too bright or dark. The dial is metallic, while Rolex calls “Green Gold.” There is another reason for the green face – to help get existing Submariner buyers to get one. If you have a previous generation Submariner there isn’t huge incentive to upgrade unless you are “that type of person.” But with a new dial color, and potentially new personality, existing fans will see reason to add to their collection.
