I remember in the early 90's (all time low time for mechanical watches) asking my parents to bring back a cheap fake rolex from one of their businesstrips to the east, to show off at a costumeparty or so (I wanted to go as sheik I think...)
A submariner also was expensive back in those days, and quite a step up from brands like breitling, tag, etc etc.
It definately wasnt just a tough dive watch.
90s??? Im talking about the 50s and 60s. The quartz crisis came in the 70s and forced mechanical watchmakers to pivot.
