When it comes to their collection some being received more than other, rolex has had many interesting collaborations and themes. one of the most successful collections is the oyster submariner, a watch that is specially designed for divers, a watch that celebrates rolex’s passion for the water world.
this fake watch has a case with the size of 40 mm, making it the best size for any wrist, big or small. it is finished with a perfect stainless steel and can come with several dial colors. it is regarded as one of the best diver watches in history not only because of its amazing technical features and endurance, but also because it is a nice watch, one that became well-known even with people who never used the watch when diving.
such a perfect replica watch with such a rich history is bound to come with a hefty price tag. this can make it hard for some people to purchase the watch. a replica is really a good choice for the watch fans that was attracted by the submariner’s appearance and history, especially if it is a quality replica.
here we have two watches that will challenge even the best of rolex experts when it comes to telling them apart. the details on the replica are so precise that there is basically nothing to distinguish it from the real watch other than the highly reduced price tag.
the bezel, case and crown are almost identical being placed in exactly the right place and looking the part. the dial is also identical with everything from the watch numbering to the classic rolex logo to the hour, minute and seconds hands. they are identical even down to the submariner writing on the dial, where the maximum 300 meter depth is specified.
the belt is also spot on with the three piece linked pattern being exactly the same as on the original. like the original submariner, the replica is finished in a polished stainless steel that will increase its aesthetic value as well as its durability.
Much like the state they’re named for, california dials have something naturally perfect and playful about them. with their uninteresting mixing of formal roman and casual arabic numerals, you just know these watches don’t play by the rules, so all in all, it brings us to the panerai pam 629. as you know, this stealthy/sexy watch raised several eyebrows when it was released, as it was the first time the brand had paired a cali dial with the sportier luminor case shape.
felix acts his role as editor of time+tide many years experience writing about watches, and a passion for all things horological. when felix appreciates the technical side of watches, it’s really the watch in the context of style and culture which he finds it so fantastic.
we received a tip-off last year that popular australian actor rodger corser has a tudor story to tell. not only does he wear a black bay on his latest show, doctor doctor (he’s also in zombie series glitch if you’re os and thinking he looks familiar as well), it turns out the vintage model he sported in ‘doctor blake’ was also a tudor.
i first noticed it for a split-second in channel 9’s new show doctor doctor. yep, there was no mistaking the black bezel and dial on the wrist of hugh knight (the titular doctor) – definitely a tudor black bay. i filed that knowledge away in the part of my brain dedicated to celebrity watch-spotting, not imagining for a minute that a few weeks later i’d be having a drink with rodger corser, in a tiny laneway bar, talking about that exact timepiece.
characters are clearly showing on the watches, but a bad choice is obvious completely. but for rodger, it is merely just a smart props determination, it’s a deeply personal link, one that ties into his other on-screen personas and informs his craft. of course we spoke about more than just replica watches – we discussed how he felt coming back to his hometown of melbourne, and also the importance of timing, and making the most out of opportunities when they arise.
