The Rolex Submariner’s popularity in the country may not need to say much. Many of my friends who have loved watches for many years said, ‘If you only buy one watch in your life, you must buy Rolex, and you must buy Rolex. Water ghost series. ‘The Rolex Submariner is both a classic diving watch and a model of the same type of timepiece.
Launched in 1953, the Submariner is the world’s first water-resistant watch up to 100 meters deep. Later, the brand’s patented triple buckle was used to lock the chain crown to further increase its waterproof depth to 300 meters. In the ocean, it is an indispensable tool for divers. On the land, it is a well-respected and elegant sports watch. Today, the Watch House brings you a submariner calendar watch. The official model of the watch is 116613LB-97203.
The Rolex Submariner Calendar 116613LB is still a classic design with the iconic Oyster case, Mercedes pin and magnifying glass calendar, 40 mm diameter, 12.5 mm thickness, and water resistance of 300 meters. The case is made of Rolex’s unique gold steel (a combination of 904L stainless steel and 18ct yellow gold), with a blue dial, blue Cerachrom ceramic word ring and gold-coated numbers, which is both stylish and solemn.
Speaking of the submariner type, I have to talk about Rolex’s Cerachrom ceramic word ring. The biggest advantage of this bezel is anti-wear, and it is particularly bright and very high-grade. Cerachrom ceramic word ring came out in 2005. In order to make this ceramic word ring show the perfect shape, Rolex can take a lot of effort. First, it needs to heat the ceramic to 1500 degrees to harden and purify it. Then it seems that the hardness can be compared with diamond Competitive ceramics are engraved with the required digital outlines, and it takes 40 man-hours to make each such circle.
The crown adopts a three-locked winding crown, which can be said to be a triple waterproof system specially developed by Rolex for the submariner type. This crown was first introduced in 1970. After several technical innovations, the three-lock lock device is composed of 10 different parts. After configuration, the oyster case can be completely closed by just tightening it, and its solid protection is comparable to that of a submarine. Hatch.
The bracelet uses a classic oyster strap, three rows of links, and gold steel material, which is extremely durable.
Seen from the side without the crown, the submariner model is thinner than the Deepsea series, not heavy and comfortable to wear. The brushed metal design highlights the strong metal texture and also plays a role in covering up scratches when worn.
Rolex’s lug design still attaches great importance to ergonomics. The lugs and oyster strap are perfectly integrated into one. The lugs are basically flush with the first section of the oyster strap, which is very comfortable to wear.
Rolex’s patented Glidelock buckle is made of yellow gold. The advantage of this buckle is that even if wearing a wetsuit, divers can easily adjust the strap without using any tools. The sturdy toothed parts under the buckle can extend the strap to 20 mm by 2 mm per bar.
The surface adopts pure blue dial, anti-reflective convex magnification (2.5 times) calendar window, Mercedes-Benz hands, bubble readings and time scales continue the classic submarine feel. Chromalight display uses blue luminous material. Under the same brightness environment, blue light can continue to shine for 8 hours, which is twice as long as ordinary fluorescent materials.
The triangular bottom case back is screwed tightly by Rolex watchmakers with special tools to completely seal the case. It is equipped with Rolex’s self-developed 3135 caliber known as the king of self-winding movements, with a diameter of 28.50 mm and a thickness of 6.00 mm. The frequency is 28,800 vibrations per hour. The mystery of this precise movement is the use of Parachrome hairsprings. This new device helps the watch resist the impact of impact and temperature changes, and has unparalleled reliability.
In summary: the so-called once and for all, the Water Ghost series can be said to be the hottest Rolex series in recent years, and the price is also rising and rising. Regardless of whether you are on the sea floor or at a dinner party, the Submariner model is a model of durable, reliable and comfortable sports timepiece. If you have aesthetic fatigue about black and green water ghosts, this watch color is definitely your best choice. The current quotation for this watch is: 100,500 RMB.
