A watch that needs very little introduction, the best quality Rolex Submariner ref.114060 replica watch is one of the most iconic watches ever created, emulated by many other brands (and, unfortunately, counterfeiters) worldwide. The watch was first featured in mainstream culture on the wrist of Sean Connery as James Bond and has since grown and evolved in Rolex’s ongoing pursuit of perfection. The model I acquired, the reference 114060, was introduced in 2012 and until very recently, was the latest incarnation of the Submariner family.
This reference introduced the “Maxi Case” to the Submariner line, with its thick block-like lugs as well as a new bezel made of highly scratch-resistant ceramic in favour of aluminium. It also introduced one of my favourite features, a “Glidelock” Oyster bracelet, which gives the wearer 20mm of micro adjustment that will not require any assistance from a watchmaker. Made of Rolex’s 904L steel, which has the heft of some precious metal watches, and 300m water resistant thanks to its Triplock crown, this black ceramic case Rolex Submariner fake watch is luxurious in feel and function. At 40mm in case diameter, it’s hard to think of a better luxury watch built for both the boardroom and the beach.
This is where the clone Rolex Submariner 114060 comes in. Being both as rugged as the Speedmaster, and as luxurious in feel as the Ellipse, it was able to suit all of my watch-wearing needs. It is a robust superlative chronometer watch with a highly luxurious heft and sensation on the wrist, thanks to the 904L steel it is built from. More importantly, the Submariner was a watch I have wanted prior to engaging with the hobby. It was a grail or goal watch before I even understood what a grail watch was. This watch presented peace of mind, being highly resistant to daily wear and tear, as well as making it very easy to find a perfect fit thanks to the Glidelock bracelet, which can be adjusted in 10 increments of 2mm.
Between divers and chronographs, I have for the most part always preferred the robustness of automatic movement fake Rolex dive watches and feel much safer going into the water with my Submariner than my old Speedmaster. With the watch not readily available at Authorised Dealers, this pristine pre-owned Submariner was available with the original box, papers and warranty card originally sold in 2012 (the model’s introduction year) in Brazil. After a quick Google search of the original owner’s name, I discovered the owner was an employee of an oil company in Brazil, which to an extent gave the watch a rich history in that it had lived by the water in South America and had now found a new home on my wrist. I love the watch and it is by no means a safe queen of mine. It is a regular part of my rotation and, after almost two years with it, any doubts I had about my decision have washed away.
