Mechanism:
The 3130 is the sister movement to the 3135. The 3135 was introduced in 1988, but for some reason the 3130, although simpler due to the lack of a date function, was not introduced until 2001. The calibre 3130 is a self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. Like all Rolex Perpetual movements, the 3130 is a certified Swiss chronometer, a designation reserved for high-precision watches that have successfully passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) tests. It is fitted with a Parachrom hairspring, offering greater resistance to shocks and to temperature variations. Its architecture, in common with all Oyster watch movements, makes it singularly reliable.

The 3130 is distinguished from the 3000 by several features; whilst it still beats at 28,000bph it now uses a balance bridge rather than a balance cock and also has a Breguet overcoil hairspring; this means that now all Rolex movements will feature these two company signatures. Also introduced on the 3130 are a new style of reversers for the automatic movement; these are much more efficient than the ones currently used and are an offshoot of the ones introduced 2 years ago on the 2235 lady’s movement. It can safely be assumed that the new reversers will gradually be introduced across the rest of the range, but it is rare that the “base” movement gets technological advances before the more “high end” variants.

Hacking: When moving the crown from position 3 (hand setting) to position 2 (manual winding), the second hand resumes operation before the crown actually 'clicks' into position 2. And if you release pressure before the crown clicks into position 2, but after the second hand resumes, the crown springs back out and the second hand hacks again. The pressure on the balance through the "stop seconds lever"/"balance stop spring" can be released and reapplied before the crown/stem moves into the indexed position. This happens if you hesitate while pushing/pulling the crown/stem into position allowing the balance to start and stop before the crown/stem locates. The hacking mechanism uses a thin, flat brass plate to put pressure on the balance wheel. When the pressure is removed the watch resumes ticking which apparently is not at the same time the crown clicks into position.

Family Notes: The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner is a line of sports watches designed for diving manufactured by Rolex, known for their resistance to water and corrosion. The first Submariner was introduced to the public in 1954 at the Basel Watch Fair. The Rolex Submariner is considered "a classic among wristwatches", manufactured by one of the most widely recognized luxury brands in the world, and due to its popularity has become the subject of massive counterfeiting. The Rolex Submariner is part of Rolex's Oyster Perpetual line. See a copy of the 1957 Submariner magazine advertisement.

The Submariner model went into production in 1953 and was showcased at the Basel Watch Fair in 1954. The assigned case reference number of this first Submariner was either 6204 or 6205. It is unclear which model came first; in any event, the two watches are nearly identical. Neither has the distinctive "cathedral" or "Mercedes" hands now so strongly associated with the Submariner line. Rather, both of these early submariners have straight "pencil" style hands. Few, if any, of the 6205 watches bear the name "Submariner" on the dial, a major distinction of modern Submariners. Some 6204 models have the Submariner logo printed below the center pinion, while others have the logo blacked out. It is believed that there were unexpected trademark issues connected with the name "Submariner" at the time the 6204 and 6205 were released, accounting for the inconsistent use of the Submariner mark on these early Submariners. Trademark irregularities notwithstanding, both the 6204 and 6205 are designated Submariner models in Rolex product literature.
