Ginault? Not another Submariner review

Ginault? Not another Submariner review

Postby koimaster » February 15th 2018, 10:23am

From TZ-UK
These are my (personal) thoughts on all the various models of the ubiquitous Rolex Submariner:

Points I like

The 50s and 60s heritage
Classic design
Good proportions and dimensions - of the 5 digit cases at least
Maxi dial
Modern solid bracelet with the glide lock extension
Metal surrounds on the indices

Points I don't like

The price - for me, upwards of £5k is just too much for a watch that I would wear casually and costs more than any other watch in my collection.
The brand and its image - again just a personal view and one that has been discussed much on here
Mercedes hands - never liked them. Swords hands I like....
Proportions of the 6 digit cases - those wide fat lugs
Rattly bracelet and flimsy clasp of the 5 digit cases - I know some people like the purported charm of these but for the price I do not

The answer? ... cean+rover ... cean-Rover
