The uni-directional bezel in the Rolex Submariner Replica Watch is designed to help a diver measure the elapsed time while diving. While the GMT is meant for the aviators, the Submariner was the world’s first watch designed for diving. This will start counting the minutes while the diver descends. Similarly, by resetting the position of the triangle again, he can pace his ascent as well. Thus, by measuring the elapsed time, the bezel ensures the safety of the diver. Both were introduced in 1954 at the Basel Fair. The Rolex GMT Replica and the Rolex Submariner fall into the professional line of watches.
Divided into two equal parts, the time 6:00 to 18:00 represents the day and the time 18:00 to 6:00 represents the night. The special 24 hour hand is used to display the 24 hour time frame on the bezel. The watch features an independent hour hand, which can be set to a different time zone without adjusting the 24 hour hand and the bezel. In addition, the “one-hour” jump feature enables the hour hand to jump one hour at a time without affecting the minute or second hand. This feature is not present in the Submariner models.
Apart from being Replica Rolex watches and sharing the same launching year, there are other similarities in the current versions of the two models. Some of these include:
1. Standard case size of 40mm
2. Self-winding mechanism
3. Rotating bezel
4. A scratch-resistant synthetic sapphire crystal, which gives the two watches a slimmer look
5. Triplock system providing another layer of protection to the Oyster case. It features a triple gasket system that screws down tightly onto the case tube and against the Oyster case
6. Available in 18k yellow gold, steel and Rolesor
The Rolex Replica Watches features a uni-directional rotating bezel as opposed to the bi-directional bezel found in the Rolex GMT watches. The functionality of the bezels is different in the two models. Before a diver gets enters the water, he needs to set the bezel so the triangle engraved on the bezel points at the current minute hand position. (On the other hand, the bi-directional rotating bezel in the Rolex GMT helps the wearer to read the time in two different time zones simultaneously.
