Traditional watches are no longer very relevant to diving. But the design, solutions and technology watchmakers developed for diving in the 20th century sure are relevant to modern Swiss made replica watches. With their rotating timing bezels, lume, legibility, durability and handsome, purposeful looks, the dive watch itself is iconic.
Among the sea of dive fake watches for sale, however, there are a handful that stand out. There are many considered historically notable or with a special place in the minds of collectors; there are more great dive replica watches online still that we love to wear and/or would wholeheartedly recommend. But how many of those have the cultural presence that we can call truly iconic? It might depend on your definition, or how deep you are into watch nerdery.
We’d happily debate you over a drink or five on which UK wholesale copy watches do or do not belong on a list titled “The Most Iconic Dive Watches.” For now, though, here are the dive watches we feel will help any newcomer to watches get a lay of the land.
Replica Rolex Submariner Watches
Year Introduced: 1953
The cheap fake Rolex Submariner watches as an icon kinda goes without saying. You might love it or roll your eyes at its ubiquity, you might argue if it really was the first dive watch or not… but the impact and status of the “Sub” isn’t debatable. Recognizable even to those who know nothing about top super clone watches, no other dive watch even comes close to its influence.
Introduced in 1953, it was among several of the first commercially available dive replica watches with Swiss movements as we’d recognize them today — and it had pretty much all of the traits considered essential and iconic right from the get-go. The multitudes of other dive watches are influenced by the Sub in some way or another and even the likes of Rolex’s own Sea-Dweller, an icon in its own right, is an evolution of it.
Fake Omega Seamaster Diver 300m Watches
Year Introduced: 1993
Omega has a number of notable dive watches, from the perfect replica Omega Seamaster 300 watches to the weird-ass Ploprof. But the Seamaster Diver 300m stands out for one major reason: Bond. James Bond. The fictional spy wore many watches, but in the 1990s a costume designer placed a funky Omega on his wrist and he’s been a brand loyalist ever since.
Bond has sometimes worn other Omegas, but the Seamaster Diver 300m (not to be confused with the Seamaster 300) is “the Bond watch.” The very ’90s design has since been modernized a bit but remains recognizable, and one of the most unique designs among mainstream dive fake watches shop.
