Looking back at Basel 2017, most of the focus was on the Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600. Many people said when they saw this watch that it was going to be a very hot watch. Now it’s 2020 and we’ve all witnessed the prophecy become a reality. The Rolex Sea-Dweller 116600 was born in 2014 and then the 126600 in 2017. It is not common for Rolex to update two luxury replica watches of the same series in three years. Let’s take a look at the differences between the Imitation Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 and the 116600.
All along, Rolex has focused on the precision and durability of its watches. Striving for simplicity in design, some even say that Rolex is too stubborn. Chances are you think that Rolex watches are all very similar, such as the Oyster case, Cyclops, fluted bezel, Mercedes hour hand, and more. Whether it’s the Rolex Sea-Dweller replica 126600 or the Ref. 116600, their overall styling isn’t much different. Let’s now look at the differences between the watch details.
BRIGHT RED “SEA-DWELLER”
The most obvious change in the dial is the color of “SEA-DWELLER”. The bright red “SEA-DWELLER” is printed on the black dial of the Maxi. The previous replica Rolex Sea-Dweller 116600 is a little more drab, because of the white “SEA-DWELLER”. This is the second time the Rolex Sea-Dweller collection has used red text, so the red lettering on the Sea-Dweller 126600 is a tribute.
For the first time, the case size of the Imitation Rolex Sea-Dweller watches has been increased to 43mm. Compared to the previous 40mm case, there is no significant visual change. While the size has increased, so has the weight of the watch, but this weight is still within a comfortable range. In the current trend for larger watches, 43mm is not a large size. So many people consider 43mm to be just the right size.
Another change in the fake Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 is the Cyclops. Prior to this watch, Rolex Sea-Dweller copy watches did not use to carry this feature. So this is the first time that Rolex Sea-Dweller watches have been equipped with a Cyclops on the date window at 3 o’clock. The Cyclops is also one of the most recognizable and iconic elements of the Rolex watches.
The Rolex NO.32XX movement is the result of a 2016 development. The Imitation Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600 released in 2017 is powered by the NO.3235 movement. Compared to the previous NO.3135 caliber, the new movement is not only more accurate and durable, but also increases the power reserve value to 70 hours.
Until the arrival of the Rolex Sea-Dweller 126600, I always thought that the Ref. 116600 was the perfect Rolex Sea-Dweller replica watch. But Rolex showed me an even more perfect Sea-Dweller 126600. And in this collection, the Rolex Sea -The Dweller 126600 is definitely a landmark watch.
