We all know that there is a mother-child relationship between Rolex and Tudor. They were all founded by Hans Wilsdorf. Tudor, while imitating Rolex, is constantly becoming stronger. In fact, Rolex and Tudor are interdependent. Everyone often compares these two brands. Both brands have diving watch collections, Submariner and Black Bay. This article compares these two replica watches.
The relationship between Rolex and Tudor is very kind, because they were both founded by Hans Wilsdorf. But they were born at different times. Wilsdorf founded the Rolex brand in 1905. Tudor was registered by Ross in 1926. But until 1936, Veuve de Philippe Hüther transferred Tudor to Wilsdorf. They are all watch brands. Wilsdorf founded Tudor to produce more watches and to sell more watches at a cheaper price. Therefore, it is normal for Tudor to imitate Rolex.
Birth Of Submariner And Black Bay
Tudor launched the Tudor Heritage Black Bay collection in 2012. The first Rolex Submariner was born in 1954. For a fair comparison, I chose two similar replica watches. Rolex Submariner 114060 and Tudor Black Bay 79230. Replica Rolex Submariner 114060 is a watch launched by Rolex in 2012. Then, Black Bay 79230 was born in 2016. They are very similar without date windows, but not the same.
Both replica watches are made of stainless steel. The 40MM Rolex Submariner case is made of 904L stainless steel. But 41MM Black Bay 316L steel. They all use Monobloc case, and there is not much difference in size. Black Bay 79230 is 2mm thicker than Submariner 114060. 904L is the best and hardest steel.
The bezels of these two diving watches are made of different materials. Replica Rolex Submariner 114060 uses a scratch-resistant and fade-resistant ceramic bezel. But the Black Bay 79230 uses an aluminum bezel. The scale and numbers on the bezel are the same. So the work of the two bezels is the same.
In fact, their dials are very similar. First, both the Rolex Submariner and Tudor Black Bay use the “Maxi” dial. So these two replica watches have the same timestamp. Their pointers are also very similar. But the theme of replica Submariner is round Mercedes-style. The theme of Black Bay is snowflakes.
Replica Rolex Submariner 114060 and Black Bay 79230 are dive watches. Submariner 114060 has a diving depth of 300M, but Black Bay is 200M. The movements of the two watches are also very similar. Rolex Submariner 114060 uses the NO.3130 movement. It has 48-hour hour power. Black Bay 79230 uses the MT5602 movement and has a 70-hour power reserve. Both movements are certified by COSC.
Tudor Black Bay usually costs £ 2,630. But Rolex Submariner retails twice as much as Black Bay. Hans Wilsdorf once said that Tudor is an affordable option. Although there is a large price gap between Black Bay and Submariner, they share many resources. Such as hands, dial and crystal. So Tudor has a more beautiful price and the reliability of Rolex. But the value of Rolex Submariner will rise. The current Rolex Submariner 114060 price is already higher than the original retail price. Compared with other luxury watch brands, Tudor watches are more value-saving. You can get the best replica Rolex Submariner in the Hontwatches.to store for $ 200.
Whether Tudor or Rolex, they are good watches. Tudor is the best alternative to Rolex watches. If your budget is limited, then Black Bay may be your best choice. There is no stronger competitor in price than Tudor.
