Cheapest Submariner Homage
Tevise Swiss Luminous Submariner Watch
What about a Submariner homage for less than $50? If you’re on a tight budget, this is by far the best wrist watch you can get. The Tevise Submariner watch is extremely similar to the original from Rolex and it retails for only $40!
There’s very few differences between this homage and the original Submariner, at least in terms of physical appearance. The knock-off features identical hands, luminous hour markers, a date window at three o’clock and even the dot on the bezel. And it’s an automatic, self-winding watch, which is actually impressive for the price point.
So, how does it differ from the real thing? Well, it features synthetic sapphire crystal glass over the dial, which isn’t actually glass. It can mimic the hardness of sapphire, but it’s not as durable or as scratch resistant as the real deal. Also, this watch is water resistant only up to 30 meters, which is 10x worse than the actual Submariner.
And the power reserve lasts only a few hours after you take it off. Even though it’s self-winding, unless you start sleeping with the Tevise Submariner homage, you will have to manually wind it. Plus, this features a push down crown, which isn’t at all good for diving.
If you’re looking for a Submariner alternative that’s actually good for diving, this is not it. But if you just want a watch that looks like a Rolex but doesn’t cost as much as your car, it’s certainly worth considering!
