Bueno es que un modelo "el fifty fathoms" es para la marina francesa y el otro "submariner" es un modelo que se presenta en una feria para el gran publico.

Ya lo he puesto antes pero lo repito:
It is unimportant at that stage if the product has design faults or it does not live up to the guarantees made because these could be dealt with the introduction of a new and improved product.
Es poco importante en ese momento si el producto tiene fallas de diseño o no estar a la altura de las garantías porque éstas podrían ser tratadas con la introducción de un nuevo y mejorado producto. Por lo tanto Rolex saco el submariner, viendo un posible mercado ya se arreglarian los problemas mas tarde.
Immediately the marketing arm of Rolex Geneva went into top gear and The Rolex Submariner ref 6204 was introduced at the1954 Basel Spring Fair. The Rolex Submariner, introduced in the early 50’s, laid down the tracks upon whcih most of their competitors would follow. From the rotating bezel, (used to gauge air-time when submersed), to the flip lock clasp and extension link (to wear outside a wetsuit with the minimum of fuss) - all Rolex innovations.
The Rolex Submariner ref 6204 with its small crown and depth level of 100m was a more commercial model, and for these reasons alone the introduction of the "Big Crown" Rolex Submariner ref 6200 depth level of 200m was held back a few months.
Rolex invented the business model for future generations. He who is first to the market place with a new product, wins. It is unimportant at that stage if the product has design faults or it does not live up to the guarantees made because these could be dealt with the introduction of a new and improved product.
