History of Rolex Watch Making

During the initial stage of the development of the Watch, Rolex cooperated with professional divers to make the oyster-type perpetual-motion submariner series more practical and perfect in technical features. This wristwatch was firstly released in 1953, forthwith followed by the introduction of new models in the next year with a doubled compression resistance, allowing for a dive deep to 200 meters (660 feet) , meanwhile the size of the double padlock winding crown was increased to make it easier for user to operate

In 1959, some appearance features of submariner series began to take shape: the diameter of watchcase was increased from 38mm to 40mm, and shoulder pad was added to both sides of watch crown. The outer ring was added with scale, the initial 15 minutes was marked by minute scale, meanwhile a pattern was added to the convenience of manual rotation. In 1969, the submariner calendar type was released.

In 1977, the triple padlock winding crown equipped with triple waterproof system was released. 2 years later, the submariner was able to extend its waterproof depth to 300 meters (1000 feet). Meanwhile, this model also had a blue crystal mirror face. Since 1985, Rolex has been making watchcase with high-performance 904L steel. Up to 2012, the models of submariner series all used the latest design, along with new-type ceramic word ring, Cerachrom, which is resistant to scraping, and the Chromalight noctilucence display that emits a permanent blue light.

The last time I used the search engine to search REPLICA ROLEX, a shop with website address: kronoswatch.sc was found, I was deeply attracted by them upon reading their introduction, and their prices are only 1/10 of the official prices. I just can’t wait to have a try. The moment I received the express delivery and opened the package, I just could not believe my eyes, this watch was just the same as the one my uncle bought in the Rolex exclusive store , if a difference must be told between the two, that is, one is new and the other is old.
