It is not an easy decision to swipe the debit card on this purchase. I was more than aware of the endless list of perfect choices within this price bracket when someone constantly surrounded by replica watches. There were some very big temptations along the way, but a fake Rolex was something I’d been working towards for a little while, and the time was right over one year ago.
The practicability is as always been my number one criteria when ordering a watch, so for me, a Submariner felt like the right option. It ticked all the usual boxes in terms of functionality – but there was a particular reference that I’d been heavily flirting with. As much as I love the traditional black bezel Submariner, when put side-by-side with the green, it felt a little too safe for my liking. The green Sub, on the other hand, is one of the most ‘daring’ designs released by Rolex in their current collection.
The green dial is simply stunning, and so dynamic – changing from a bright sunburst green, to a deep dark relying on the lighting. The result is an ever-changing dial, which feels almost seasonal – bright green in the summer time when the sun is rising, and a dark, rich, green on those overcast winter mornings.
But when you actually put it on, you realize that everything about the replica Submariner has been designed for maximum tactile satisfaction. From the moment you push the clasp down on that perfectly fitted oyster bracelet to that first turn of the bezel — putting on this watch is a truly enjoyable part of my morning routine.
It’s a Submariner with a green twist. The amazing dial is complemented by aqua-blue lume, which is a treat come sundown. It’s just another unexpected element, and a nice touch I’ve really come to enjoy. All round, though, the green Sub is ultra-crisp with meticulously finished details. It’s a really, really handsome tool watch.
Aside from the dial, the Oyster Bracelet with the ‘Glidelock’ feature really is wonderful. The Glidelock comes in handy almost daily and is a big part of why this cheap replica rolex watches is so versatile. It allows the bracelet to be adjusted by approximately 20mm without requesting to fiddle with tools, which is especially handy in summer, and for someone who flies quite a bit.
I’d wear this with … everything — even though I probably shouldn’t. As a matter of fact, one of the most frequent questions I get asked about owning the Hulk is, ‘Is it something you can wear with everything?’ My answer is always positive. The 40mm case suits most outfits and I’ve equally enjoyed wearing this watch to the beach and to the gym, as I have the most formal of workplaces.
To be honest, after 60+ years, Rolex has the Submariner just about nailed. I’m the first to admit that’s just me being picky. I’m also not wild about the ‘Hulk’ nickname, but there’s no real chance of changing that.
