After all, you are going to get a great clone, the brands might as well be the top one and two choices on the planet.

Believe it or not, with the advancements in technology and competition, reliable replica timepiece such as the Panerai Luminor Submersible Marina or the Rolex Submariner Clone are being made better than ever. Which one should you choose? Unfortunately, no one can wear more than one watch and still be taken seriously. Thus, when it comes to the Luminor submersible rep vs Rolex Submariner clone we have put together a comparison of these two beauties and you can decide which one is the right one for you.

The Rolex Submariner Clone

Keep in mind that a clone most likely won’t have the same interior details as the original. On the other hand, the outer details will be nearly identical, so that is where fans of the Submariner clone put their focus. With 3 rows of links on its bracelet, the Submariner looks more like a luxury watch than a diving watch. The buckle clasps nicely and it feels secure, but if you really are going to be in the water, it feels too heavy.Rolex Submariner Clone style

Professional divers that just want to look good should get the Rolex Submariner. It is a great look for being able to attend a beach party in style. Rolex is always much more eye-catching compared to the subdued, functional Panerai.

Panerai Luminor Submersible Replica Watch Review

The design of the Panerai is not unlike the watches worn by the commandos of the Italian Navy. The look and feel of this watch really are European and classic.

Certain elements such as the polished steel case and the black dial have Arabic numerals that glow in the dark. The date is quite visible and the calendar is at three o’clock. The Rolex does not magnify its date so you will need to have extremely great eyesight to see the tiny details. The replica will most likely have an identical alligator strap made of either embossed leather or canvas.

Panerai is stylish and waterproof. Panerai looks more serious and less flashy. Serious divers choose Panerai for its ability to withstand great depths and still come out a winner. Remember that the replica version may only be water-resistant. But hey, whoever said you were ever going underwater?

The Verdict

If you were getting a real diving watch, then the Panerai can take you to greater lengths and depths. However, fans around the globe agree that between the Panerai clone and the Rolex replica, there really is nothing quite like a Rolex lookalike.
