As of 2020, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner with no date display, which many view as the archetypal dive watch, is slightly larger and has an updated movement yet remains true to its original design. This is our first encounter with the new watch.
We had to wait a long time for the latest replica Rolex innovations in 2020. Rolex presented a new generation of Oyster Perpetual Submariner and Submariner Date watches in September. These timepieces are slightly larger and are now equipped with new movements — the Submariner has the recently unveiled Caliber 3230 and the new Submariner Date versions are using the Caliber 3235 for the first time. The Submariner Date offers a surprising array of color combinations while the Submariner with no date display stays true to its original design. We were able to preview the new Submariner shortly after its introduction.
Upgraded Details Result in New Proportions
If you think a Rolex innovation means a revolution, you’ll be mistaken. But the Submariner has been modified so that the sum of the various details has resulted in a new watch. The diameter of the watch has grown from 40 mm to 41 mm, or more precisely, from 40.6 mm to 41.36 mm, measured across the diagonal from 2 to 8 o’clock. The crown guards and lugs are slimmer, but this has increased the lug width by a whole millimeter, to 21 mm.
These seemingly minor upgrades alter the proportions of the entire watch—including the case body, bezel, dial, and bracelet. This means you are looking at a completely new model. If you place the new Oyster Perpetual Submariner next to its predecessor (which is about to be discontinued), the changes become apparent. The new Submariner looks more than a millimeter larger than the old one, and that’s because even the tiniest details have been heavily revised.
The new in-house self-winding Caliber 3230 movement is less obvious because, like any Rolex watch, it is covered by a finely grooved case back, hermetically screwed down with a special key, and can only be opened by an authorized replica Rolex watchmaker. Make. The difference with the 3235 movement is that there is no date display on the Submariner dial.
Otherwise all other functions are the same. The new Replica Rolex Submariner is equipped with Rolex’s patented innovative Chronergy escapement, made from a nickel-phosphorus alloy. It offers excellent functional reliability, high energy efficiency and is resistant to the effects of magnetic fields. The movement also features an optimized version of Rolex’s Parachrom hairspring.
