I’ll acknowledge that the Blaken X Rolex Submariner Replica name does carry some cachet with me, but mostly because after all is said and done, the provider is remarkably consistent and stable. For that reason, folks believe Rolex watches to be similar to money, and that’s a big part of the reason Rolex watches hold their value so well. The Rolex Submariner isn’t just a timepiece, but an institution. It is like being a part of a club which lots of people should be involved with for at least a minute in their own lives. A watch such as this is a testament to a set of manufacturing and design principles that is so completely non-controversial you can not help but stand behind it. Many men and women are delighted with possessing something such as a Rolex Submariner as their everyday watch, and there isn’t anything wrong with that.Personally, ” I do not think I might be “wed” into one timepiece, however I really do think that even if you want to keep up a small watch collection something at the Rolex Oyster Professional collection should be in there, and also the Rolex Submariner 114060 is a very appealing option. Retail cost is $7,500, and given that the competition today, you truly do get a good deal for the money.
Marcello C watches were my first love in Swiss watches. I learned about them from a WatchTime Annual watch list talking about watches being sold that year. This was maybe in 2003. I was lucky enough to find a Marcello C Nettuno 3 on eBay for a very reasonable price. The Marcello C Tridente is a larger version of that watch with a deeper water resistance of 1000m. The fit and finish of this watch are impeccable, tantamount to that of a Rolex. It uses a ETA 2824-2 movement which is as reliable a a chronometer, but just has not been formally certified.
I have actually had my Marcello C watch be mistaken for a Rolex. The quality of the steel used, and the sheen of the finish are that good. It is hard to explain how the steel is polished. More brushed really rather than polished. Like I said, it has a sheen rather than a chrome-like shine, which is actually much more elegant. Most “shiny” watches are actually cheap plating on cheaper metal. The Marcello C uses solid steel pieces for the links and the cases. Having said that, the bracelet is very comfortable and incorporates a useful diver’s extension if you actually use it for diving, which you can.
This auction is at a very good price, and it gets my seal of approval. Check out the eBay Marcello C Tridente auction here.
