The Mercedes hands leave deep impression on many people. Almost all the models of the famous Submariner use the Mercedes hands. Does Rolex build any partnership with Mercedes? We all know many watch brands have cooperated with the famous car brands to launch the impressive limited editions. For example, the Breitling and Bentley, Hublot and Ferrari and so on.
However, in fact, Rolex never cooperates with Mercedes. The hands look similar to the Mercedes, so they have been mistaken for the logo of Mercedes-Benz. The brand that Mercedes-Benz has cooperated with is the IWC instead of Rolex. But why these special hands are used on the perfect Rolex fake watches? It has close relationship with the luminescence.
The environment surround is dark when diving, so the luminescent hands are very necessary. However, at the earliest time, the luminous material was mainly a mixture of radium and zinc sulfide. One of the disadvantages of this material is that it is easy to fall off, so some lines are needed to fix this material. Then the distinctive hands are created. For example, the Rolex Submariner copy with Oystersteel case ensures the good readability by the distinctive shape and marvelous luminescent material.
