Rolex GMT and Rolex submariner come in professional line of watches. While GMT aims for aviation, the submariner was the world’s first watch designed for divers. The two were introduced at the Basel Fair in past. Comparison between Rolex GMT and Rolex Submariner is all about. Apart from having professional Rolex watches and sharing the same launching year, the two versions have other similarities in the current version. Can be placed in different time zones without are adjusting. In addition, the “one hour” jump feature enables one to jump an hour without affecting minutes or second hand. This is not the Mariner models. Some of these include:
- Standard case size of 40 mm
- Self-winding method
- The rotating bezel
- Scratch-resistant synthetic sapphire crystal, which gives both watches a slim look
The trip lock system provides another layer of protection in the case of oysters. It has a triple gasket system that slips tightly against the case tube and the oyster case.
Available in 18k yellow gold, steel and roller
Apart from these two similarities, the option of black bezel with black dial is also very popular among these two models.
How is the Rolex GMT different from the Rolex Submariner?
Rolex designed both of these models to meet different professional needs. Some important aspects where the watch models are different from each other are explained below:
The Rolex Submariner features
A rotating bezel in the same direction as opposed to the two-dimensional bezel found is in the Rolex GMT watches.
The performance of the bezels is different in both models.
The Rolex Submariner features a one-bezel bezel designed to help divers measure when diving.
Before the diver enters the water, he needs to place the bezel so the triangle carved at the bezel points at the current minute hand position.
It will start counting the minutes as the divers take off. Similarly, by adjusting the position of the triangle, he can accelerate his ascent.
In this way, by measuring elapsed time, the bezel ensures the safety of the diver.
On the other hand, the two-dimensional rotating bezel in the Rolex GMT allows the wearer to read in two different time zones simultaneously. Equal parts divided into two parts, representing time from 6:00 to 18:00 days. And represents the time from 18:00 to 6:00 p.m. 24 hours is used to use a special 24-hour time on the Basel – a free hour hand, which is a 24 hour hand and a bezel.
The current Rolex GMT models have a water depth of 330 feet, while the submarine model has a water depth of 300 meters or 1000 feet.
All current Rolex GMT models play ceramic bezels in contrast to submarine models. Currently available Rolex GMT models offer many jewelry embedded options such as diamond-made dial, rotating bezel diamonds, sapphire and ruby and even fitted with diamonds. Such jewelry options are not available in the submariner model. Scott Parham is a famous author who writes about the Rolex GMT Master. A UK luxury watch retailer sells a large number of Rolex watches for men and women.
