Rolex Submariner and Blancpain Fifty Fathoms both were launched in 1953, and Omega Seamaster was released in 1957. From starting to developing to present, they all experienced a lot and produced two different versions for civilian use and military use. Today, in terms of business strategy and market positioning, Blancpain ranks higher than the others in the watchmaking field. However, they all made glory achievement in watchmaking history. Taking Rolex Submariner date Black Ref. 116610LN, Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M 8900 Co-Axial Master Chronometer Steel Watch 188.8.131.52.01.002 and Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Titanium 5000-1230-B52A as examples, we everyone will get some conclusions.
Different Styles They adhere to
Rolex Submariner, Omega Seamaster and Blancpain Fifty Fathoms are luxury diving watches or tool watches, but they adhere to different styles.
Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Titanium 5000-1230-B52A
Blancpain Fifty Fathoms looks simple and low key, but in essence, it’s a real luxury model, because its designs and craftsmanship reflect high end quality and refined details. Black gold-plated rotor stands out throughout sapphire back, while the other two models aren’t fitted with the component. The narrower bezel and smaller hour markers on the simple-style dial make the Fifty Fathoms look like a dress watch. In general, the line is equipped with canvas straps and rubber bands. It reflects s stronger sense of luxury.
Rolex Submariner date Black Ref. 116610LN
Rolex Submariner is the most standard diving watch all over the world, whose details achieve the best balance points, like Oyster case, Oystersteel, accuracy, iconic look. Rolex never highlights some feature on purpose, and exterior look of the Submariner changes a little from starting to today.
Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Co-Axial Chronometer 184.108.40.206.01.002
Among diving watches at the same price, Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M is a professional diver’s watch with strong comprehensive performance. Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 8900 features 43.5mm, 600-meter water resistance, sapphire back, 15,000 Gauss, colored bezel and the sense of luxury.
Of three diving watches, Blancpain Fifty Fathoms 5000-1230-B52A has the best fittings. The 60-minute scale on ceramic bezel is filled with liquid metal, so it presents different colors under different rays. Cal.1315 is better than Cal.3135 and cal.8900, supplying 120-hour power reserve. With the help of the black gold-plated rotor, silicon hairspring and delicate decorative grain, Cal.1315 is outstanding. Because Blancpain and Omega both are branches of Swatch Group, Omega Seamaster 220.127.116.11.01.002 also is fitted with a liquid metal ceramic bezel. One fourth of the bezel is filled with orange rubber, so the technology for Omega ceramic bezel is higher than Blancpain’s. I have introduced its performance below, and I won’t repeat. As for power reserve, Rolex Submariner 116610LN only has 48 hours, less than the other two models. But, Rolex has a strong advantage-accuracy. Rolex Cal.3135 is honored as a superlative chronometer. Daily error ranges in +2/-2s. Oyster Bracelet with Extension System helps a lot when divers are wearing thick diving suits.
According to market positioning, the public price of Blancpain Fifty Fathoms is higher than the others’. Of three, Omega 18.104.22.168.01.002 costs least, but it has comprehensive ability. Blancpain Fifty Fathoms is more elegant and more delicate than the other. Due to business strategy, it’s difficult to get a Rolex Submariner. In a word, any of them is the best one for those who really love it.
