Review for Rolex Submariner Date

What would Rolex be like without submariners? It is the most popular and recognizable diving watch of all time and has been used as a benchmark for all other replica watches since their introduction in 1954. However, despite its global reputation, the Rolex submariner actually saw some controversy during its sixty-five years of operation. During this time, there were some conflicting introductions.   rolex-078948_05
One of them was introduced in 1969, when ref. 1680 introduced dates into watches. Critics seem to object in two ways: first, many believe that the date displayed on diving watches is of little use; Second, there are complaints that the three-point date window, especially the magnifying glass above, destroys the overall symmetry of the dial. Undeterred, Rolex just split the range in two and has since produced a dated and undated version.
Another controversial move took place on the latest version of the Rolex submarine. Launched in 2010, the ref. 116610 was released with the Rolex supercase, featuring double the thickness of the lugs and crown guards. For those who think the 40mm is too small for a modern sports watch, this is a compromise that keeps the same size on paper but adds a significant presence to the extra volume on the wrist. But the beautiful, sweeping lines that preceded them, barely changed in the last 50 years, have disappeared, and the move has lost many fans.
Prior to the current model, the reference 16610 debuted in 1989 and has become a highly sought-after secondary market. It has many advantages for collectors. It has most of the modern elements you need, and you might want to wear it every day, but with just the right amount of nostalgia.
The metal used to build the fake rolex submarine 16610 is incredibly resilient 904L stainless steel, which is almost entirely Rolex territory. It contains a higher proportion of chromium, molybdenum, nickel and copper than the conventional 316L steel used by almost all of its competitors, making it a harder and more corrosion resistant metal. It also has a unique luster when polished, visually turning it from a crowded industry.
Internally, the Rolex submarine ref. 16610 is fitted with the legendary caliber 3135 and is generally considered one of the best mass production mechanical movements ever. In fact, the cal. 3135 is so good that more than 30 years later, it is still the engine for the latest generation of date-displaying submarines.
