The oscillator, the true heart of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner Stainless Steel Replica Watch, has a blue PARACHROM hairspring patented and manufactured by Rolex in an exclusive alloy.The new SUBMARINER is equipped with calibre 3130, a self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. Insensitive to magnetic ﬁelds, the PARACHROM hairspring offers great stability when exposed to temperature variations and remains up to 10 times more precise than a traditional hairspring in case of shocks. Its architecture, like that of all OYSTER watch movements, makes it singularly precise and reliable. Like all PERPETUAL movements, the 3130 is a certiﬁed Swiss chronometer, a designation reserved for high-precision watches that have successfully passed the Swiss Ofﬁcial Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) tests.
This allows the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner Replica to be worn over a diving suit up to 3 mm thick and provides additional comfort in any circumstance.This SUBMARINER is ﬁtted with a solid-link OYSTER bracelet in 904L steel. The ingenious patented system, located beneath the clasp cover, allows ﬁne adjustments of the bracelet length in 2 mm increments for a total of approximately 20 mm – without using any tools. It features a new-generation OYSTERLOCK safety clasp and GLIDELOCK extension system.
The ﬂuted case back is hermetically screwed down with a special tool exclusive to Rolex watchmakers.The SUBMARINER’s 40 mm OYSTER case, guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 300 metres (1,000 feet), is a paragon of robustness. The waterproof OYSTER case ensures optimal protection for the SUBMARINER’s high-precision movement. The crystal is made of virtually scratchproof synthetic sapphire. The winding crown, ﬁtted with the patented TRIPLOCK triple waterproofness system, screws down securely against the case in a manner akin to a submarine’s hatch. It is protected by a crown guard that is an integral part of the middle case. The middle case is crafted from a solid block of particularly corrosion-resistant 904L steel.
The archetype of the diver’s watch, the rolex replica watch presented at BASELWORLD 2012 sports a new look to complement its iconic personality. With its subtly redesigned case and its new bezel and bracelet both beneﬁtting from recent Rolex innovations, this latest generation SUBMARINER is ﬁrmly in line with the tradition of the historic model launched in 1953. It sets new standards in terms of robustness, legibility and reliability, strengthening its status as a watch of action with timeless allure.
