The Rolex Submariner and the Rolex Sea-Dweller

The Rolex Submariner and the Rolex Sea-Dweller are two of the truly exceptional sport models Rolex makes. Meant for the divers, both these models have taken the brand 'Rolex' to new heights or, should we say, depths. These two models are popular all over the world for their ability to perform accurately even deep under water.

How is the Sea-Dweller Different from the Submariner?

The basic difference between the two lies in their depth ratings. While the current Submariner models have a maximum depth rating of 300 meters or 1000 feet, the current versions of Sea-Dweller can comfortably go underwater up to a depth of 4000 feet (all earlier models had a depth rating of 2000 feet). As a result, the Submariner is the choice of amateur and recreational divers whereas professional divers go for the Sea-Dweller. The underwater treasure hunters also wear Sea-Dwellers.(Notice: the two replica rolex watch can not dive so deep.)

Another major difference between the two models is the presence of a one-way gas escape valve opposite the winding crown in the Sea-Dweller. This special feature has been added to it to protect the watch from internal pressure, which builds-up when the divers go to the decompression chambers. Deep sea divers use a helium/oxygen mix in their air tanks, which can easily permeate the crystal of the watch. However, during decompression, helium particles are not able to come out of the watch, thus, blowing the crystal out of the watch. The gas escape valve was the a solution to this problem, which has proved extremely effective. The current Sea-Dweller models feature a larger and improved gas escape valve.

You will also find that the Sea-Dweller is bigger than the Submariner. This primarily is because of the thicker sapphire crystal that makes the former about 4mm thicker than the latter. The thicker crystal also leads to another notable difference between the two. Although the Sea-Dweller displays the date, it does not feature the Cyclops lens (magnifying lens). The thicker crystal does not allow for such a magnifying lens.

To What Extent the Sea-Dweller is Similar to the Submariner?

There are certain features found in both the models. The major similarity between the two is their ability to survive under water without any flaw in their functionality. In addition, there are many other aspects where the two are similar. For instance, you can find the following features in both models.

1. A scratch-resistant synthetic sapphire crystal

2. Unidirectional bezel, capable of turning only counterclockwise preventing the accidental movement of the bezel while diving

3. New Triplock system now features a triple gasket system that screws down tightly onto the case tube and against the Oyster case. This offers another layer of protection under water

4. Self-winding mechanism with a perpetual motor

5. Made of either solid block of 904L stainless steel (a stainless steel alloy which is completely corrosion resistant) or gold

The Rolex Submariner and the Sea-Dweller are alike in many ways, but the Sea-Dweller is a bigger, heavier and tougher brother of the Submariner. Go for the Submariner, if you are into recreational diving, however, for true professional and commercial divers, the Sea-Dweller should be the choice.

Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea Black Dial

Entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex, the Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea is a totally new watch that benefits from important technical innovations. It is equipped with a Ringlock System, a new case architecture patented by Rolex, which allows the watch to resist the colossal pressure exerted by water at great depths. It is the first watch to feature a bracelet with a double extension system making it easily adaptable for greater comfort in wear over a diving suit.

The Sea-Dweller Deepsea responds to the most exacting demands of professional divers in terms of robustness, precision and reliability.

Technical Features:

A watch developed for extreme depths, guaranteed waterproof to 3,900 metres (12,800 feet), the Rolex Sea-Dweller Deepsea required the design of a case with a unique architecture, the Ringlock System. This innovation patented by Rolex consists of a combination of three distinctive features:

1, The high-performance ring

Set inside the middle case of the watch between the crystal and the case back, the high-performance nitrogen-alloyed stainless steel ring withstands the pressure exerted by water on the crystal and the case back.

The middle case is made from 904L steel.

2, The sapphire crystal

To resist pressure, the synthetic sapphire crystal is slightly domed and substantially thicker than the crystals of other Oyster models.

3, The case back

The case back is made of a titanium alloy, an extremely resistant stainless material. It is held in place against the high-performance ring by means of a 904L-steel ring.

The Triplock winding crown, equipped with three seals and screwed onto the case, completes this ingenious waterproof system.

Display and legibility:

1, Bezel

The Sea-Dweller Deepsea is equipped with a unidirectional rotatable bezel with a 60-minute graduated black Cerachrom disc that allows the diver to precisely track his dive time.

Engraved in the Cerachrom, the numerals and the graduations are filled with platinum through the use of a PVD technique patented by Rolex.

The zero marker of the graduated bezel, represented by a triangle, is visible longer at night or in the depths of the ocean thanks to a capsule containing a new luminescent material that emits a blue glow.

2, Dial

To enhance legibility, the gold indexes and hands are wider and partially coated with the same new luminescent material and also emit a blue colour.

3, Movement

This Rolex watch is equipped with calibre 3135, known for its chronometric precision, its reliability and its robustness; it also features a Parachrom hairspring with high resistance to shocks and magnetic fields.

Certified as a chronometer by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), the movement has a 48-hour power reserve.

3, Bracelet

Manufactured from solid 904L steel, the Sea-Dweller Deepsea bracelet can be adjusted for wear over a diving suit up to 7 mm thick thanks to a double extension system:

Fliplock extension links

the new Glidelock clasp, allowing fine adjustments

Functioning-the unidirectional rotatable bezel

The Oyster Perpetual Sea-Dweller Deepsea allows a diver to safely track his dive time thanks to the unidirectional graduated bezel featured on the watch.

At the beginning of a dive

Once in the water, before beginning his descent, the diver turns the bezel to align the triangle on the graduated bezel to the minute hand, thus indicating the start time of his dive.

During the dive

The dive time can be read against the graduated bezel.

Since the Deepsea bezel turns only counterclockwise, any accidental rotation can only have the effect of shortening the dive time.

The picture above is a Rolex Sea-Dweller replica watch, this replica rolex has the same appearance with the Original Sea-Dweller Deepsea, for example, the unidirectional rotatable bezel, the thick sapphire crystal, the wide hands, and so on. But this watch has its own features:

Movement: Original Swiss ETA 2836 movement

Steel: 316 stainless steel

Besides, this ETA watch is only $230, you can't find this watch with so cheap price in other websites.

The picture above is a Rolex Daytona replica watch for BMW, although it was a 2008 new model watch of Rolex Daytona, this replica rolex has been sold well since it was released. let's talk about this watch in more details.


Bezel: Engraved and calibrated for immediate read-off of speeds

Dial: Black dial. At 12 o'clock, there is a BMW logo. Each of three sub-dials is positioned at 3, 6, and 9. Between 4 o'clock and 5 o'clock, a date window is positioned. As you can see from the picture, it says "4"

Band: Two tone stainless steel band of this rolex replica watch.

Case diameter: 40mm

Material: 316 steel and yellow gold

Crystal: Mineral

Movement: Japanese quartz movement


This Daytona BMW watch has stop watch function and a date window display.

The three subdials on the dial of the Rolex Daytona replica watch display small seconds(lower sub-dial), minutes(upper left sub-dial), and hours(upper right sub-dial).

The lower sub-dial is constantly running and shows the seconds. 60 seconds / 1 minute equal one full rotation of the hand on that small dial. However, the lower sub-dial is not part of the timing / stopwatch function. The seconds for the timing function, connected with the upper two small dials, are indicated by the long, fine hand on the main dial, which will start counting seconds from zero(the 12:00 position) once the upper push-button is pressed.

The upper left sub-dial indeed has 12 segments each standing for 5 minutes. When the stopwatch hand indicating the seconds on the main dial has completed on rotation, the hand on the upper left sub-dial will approach by 1/5 segment.

The hand on the upper right sub-dial will do one full rotation during one day / 24 hours.

Rolex Daytona Black Dial

Rolex Daytona is a watch that has become a living legend. The early Daytonas were not even powered by Rolex's own movement buy by another manufacturer's. It was only 2000 that Rolex installed its own chronograph movement in the Rolex Daytona, and made a few technical improvements as well, such as downshifting the ticking from 36,000 beats per hour to 28,800.

Following, to describe the appearance and the function of Daytona, i will introduce a Rolex Daytona replica watch to you.


Case, bezel: Stainless steel case. The bezel is engraved and calibrated for immediate read-off of speeds, which is identical to the original.

Dial: Black dial. A silver Rolex logo is positioned at 12 o'clock. There are three subdials on the dial, they are minute subdial, seconds subdial, and hour subdial, each of them is positioned at 3, 6,and 9.


1, Most Rolex Daytona replica watches use 316 steel or a lower level steel, however, the original Rolex uses 904L steel for its steel watch cases.

2, Asian replica Rolex uses two types of faces, one is mineral crystal, and the other is sapphire crystal. Most Asian replica watches use the mineral crystal, except for the Asian ETA replica watches. This Rolex Daytona watch uses the former material.

We are helping you to find the best replica watch

There are many Rolex replica watches with different price sold in the market and on the internet. Their price varies from dozens of dollars to hundreds of dollars, even the two replica rolex watches with same appearance are sold at different prices. Because the movement and the material used in these watches differ from each other. In fact, in the market, especially in Asia, most replica watches have 3 grades.

Grade 1: Swiss replica watches(AAA)

These Rolex replica watches are crafted from a 1:1 block from the original, so they are greatly in demand. The biggest difference between them and the other Rolex replicas is the movement. The "AAA" replica watches use 25 jewel Swiss ETA 2836-2 movement or 27 jewel Swiss ETA movement, which is identical to the original Rolex. Click here to view the pictures of an original Swiss ETA 2836 movement.

Second, the "AAA" replicas use genuine sapphire crystal, to test the face of the watch, you can drag a razor across its surface, the sapphire crystal won't scratch.

Third, the "AAA" watches use 440 or higher grade of steel.

These three guides will help you when you are searching a replica watch like this.

Grade 2: Asian ETA replica watches(A)

These replicas also use the ETA movement, and each part of the movement is made in Swiss, then they are assembled into a whole movement in Asia. So, they are called "Asian replica watches". Some features as followed:

-Top quality Asian ETA movement

-Sapphire crystal or mineral crystal

-solid 316 steel

Grade 3: Asian replica watches(B)

Typically, an Asian replica watch of this grade is often much lighter than the original, may also often use quartz movement instead of automatic movement. These movements are all made in China, and are plated with stainless steel.

In order to save the cost, the case of this grade watch is hollow, and is made from scrap. So these Asian replicas are sold at a low price, no more than $40.

For example, some bad Asian replica Rolex watches use a clear display, or "skeleton" caseback, as you know, the genuine Rolex does not make such a watch.

Rolex Air King Blue Dial Swiss ETA 2836 Movement

A few days ago, we talked about a replica Rolex Air King black dial watch, now we will introduce another replica watch model of Rolex Air King, seeing from the former picture, we know that not only the two watches have different appearance, but they also differ in the most important part of a watch-the movement.

The former Rolex Air King we discussed before uses an Asian automatic movement, but this watch uses the Swiss ETA 2836 movement. Seeing from the picture above, when you open the caseback of the watch, you will find some letters and numbers engraved on the movement that is plated with 18K gold. The number "2836-2" says that this replica rolex uses the Swiss ETA 2836 movement, and the keywords "25 JEWELS" means there are 25 ruby eye-axis used on this movement. As you know, many people will admit that the watch that uses Swiss ETA 2836 movement is the best replica watch in the market, so this Rolex Air King is also a "AAA" replica rolex.

Besides, another difference between the two replica Air King watches is the face material. The black dial watch is mineral crystal glass face, however, the blue dial Rolex uses sapphire crystal glass face, which is identical to the original. The sapphire is highly resistant to scratches and chips, so,when you drag a razor across its surface, the sapphire crystal won't scratch.

Having compared the two Rolex Air King watches, do you know the reason why one of them is sold at $108, and the blue dial watch is $248 ?

More obvious features:

Case, bezel and dial:

Stainless steel case and domed bezel.

The dial is blue with white stick markers.

Like the original Rolex, this one has a Rolex logo positioned at 12 o'clock, and a smaller Rolex logo positioned at 6 o'clock.

Swiss ETA Movement

ETA SA is a Swiss producer of mechanical and quartz watch movement.It is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Swatch Group.The company specializes in the production of ebauche movements which are used in a number of mechanical watches.ETA has owned several important Swiss watch movement companies including Valjoux, Peseux and Lemania, for a number of years.

The ETA movement is used in many famous watches, including Rolex, Omega, and even replica Rolex watch models.This movement will automatically wind by a semi-circle weighted rotor which rotates as the watch moves while being worn.

The Swiss ETA automatic movements are durable, reliable, and last for a long time with proper maintenance. This trend has proven itself over the years. If you are looking for something entirely reliable, that you can just wear for years to come, then a watch based on this movement would probably be the best buy for you. Generally, for a automatic movement, it will never be able to over-wind as it has a clutch assembly on the mainspring to allow the mainspring to slip once the watch is fully wound. This Swiss ETA movement is a bi-directionally winding movement, which makes it very efficient. This means that whether the rotor turns clock-wise or counter-clockwise, it still winds the movement.

One workhorse of the ETA mechanical line is the ETA 2836-2, ETA 2836-2 is a 28,800 BPH movement. BPH means Beat Per Hour. It also means the watch ticks and tocks 28,800 times per hour. Actually, it is the balance wheel which makes this number of swings clockwise and counter-clockwise every hour. Each swing is a “Tick” (or Tock) and the number per hour, divided by 60 minutes, and 60 seconds, will tell you how smooth the seconds hand runs. For the case of the ETA 2836-2, we have 8 “Ticks/Tocks” per second, and the hand will appear to “Sweep” across the dial, this is the smoothest you can get for this movement. I heard some could go as high as 36,000 BPH. But, I have yet to see one myself.

Because they are fooling you, you believe that a replica rolex which uses Swiss ETA 2836 movement is sold at $108 or so ?

After the introduction of movement, let's see more details about this Datejust watch:

Case,bezel and dial: Stainless steel case with domed bezel. Cubic diamond markers on the dial, a silver Rolex logo is positioned at 12 o'clock with "ROLEX OYSTER PERPETUAL DATEJUST" below. Like other Datejust watches, a date window is positioned at 3 o'clock on the dial.

People review about this Rolex Datejust:

Rolex Introduction

Rolex Watch

Rolex SA is a Swiss manufacture of wristwatches and accessories.Rolex watches are popularly considered status symbols.Rolex is the largest single luxury watch brand by far, producing about 2,000 watches per day, with estimated revenues of around US$ 3 billion (2003). BusinessWeek magazine ranks Rolex #71 on its 2007 annual list of the 100 most valuable global brands, top among all watchmakers.

In 1905 Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law Alfred Davis founded "Wilsdorf and Davis" in London.Their main business at the time was importing Hermann Aegler's Swiss movements to England and placing them in quality cases made by Dennison and others. These early wristwatches were sold to jewellers, who then put their own names on the dial. The earliest watches from Wilsdorf and Davis were usually hallmarked "W&D" inside the caseback.

In 1908 Wilsdorf registered the trademark "Rolex" and opened an office in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.The company name "Rolex" was registered on 15 November 1915.The word was made up, and its origin is obscure.Wilsdorf was said to want his watch brand's name to be easily pronounceable in any language. One story, never confirmed by Wilsdorf, is that the name came from the French phrase horlogerie exquise, meaning "exquisite clockwork". Another story claims that "rolex" was meant to evoke the sound of a watch being wound.The book The Best of Time: Rolex Wrist Watches by Jeffrey P. Hess and James Dowling says that the name was just made up. The Book A Movement in Time with Breitling & Rolex by Mark A Cooper states that the name came from the partner Alfred Davis and not Wilsdorf. Alfred Davis was a Rolls Royce driver and loved the quality of the car, something he wanted with Rolex. He used the name Rol and then added the popular watch name at the time 'TIMEX' to make the word Rolex.

In 1919 Wilsdorf moved the company to Geneva,Switzerland where it was established as the Rolex Watch Company. Its name was later changed to Montres Rolex, SA, and finally Rolex, SA.The company moved out of the United Kingdom because taxes and export duties on the case metals (silver and gold) were driving costs up.

Upon the death of his wife in 1944, Wilsdorf established the Hans Wildorf Foundation in which he left all of his Rolex shares, making sure that some of the company's income would go to charity. The company is still owned by a private trust, and shares are not traded on any stock exchange.
