There are many classic rivalries worldwide, but perhaps the most unique and distinctive is the one between two top watchmakers. Rolex and Omega. Submariner or Seamaster?
Both are Swiss companies dedicated to bringing the highest quality to their customers, and each boasts a great product compared to other massive watchmakers, but in the battle of the divers, who can win?
Regarding aesthetics, the Rolex Submariner model is probably one of the most beautiful timepieces ever made. Since the first Rolex Submariner was created in 1953, there have been many generations of fantastic creations that any person would be proud to own. Yes, the Rolex Submariner has a significantly higher price point, but the value of these works of art has held up very well, sometimes even increase over time.
Another undeniably popular model is the Rolex Submariner 16610LV – Kermit – a 50th-anniversary limited edition. If you find a used copy of this particular Rolex Submariner, don’t hesitate to grab it! Even a pre-owned Rolex Submariner is a treasure worth finding; once you find it, you can keep it.
We also can’t forget the now-discontinued Rolex Submariner 116610. It was the first Submariner with a ceramic bezel and quickly became a collector’s dream item, with the 41mm Ref. 126610 now taking its place. Most Rolex replica watches sell for more than their original retail price on the pre-owned market, which is especially true of the Submariner.
The Omega Seamaster and the Rolex Submariner are top-of-the-line timepieces, and either one will last a lifetime. Omega’s new line of anti-magnetic movements offers buyers a considerable amount of performance. Buying an Omega Seamaster can easily be done at the retail level, and savings can even be found on the secondary market.
All things being equal, most people would choose the Rolex Submariner. However, when it costs more than twice as much as the Omega Seamaster, the big question becomes whether you’re really paying twice as much for twice the watch, and that’s when things get a little subjective. There’s no denying that the Submariner holds its value better and can even appreciate. Still, when you’re buying yourself a top-of-the-line dive quality replica watches from one of the world’s most famous manufacturers, both are great choices, and there is no wrong choice.
