The Rolex Submariner is an absolute classic, and it featured on Sean Connery's wrist in the first James Bond film.  Interestingly, it apparently wasn't placed by Rolex, and was in fact given to Connery by the producer. The 6538 is a hard watch to find, and it is ideal for collectors. Featuring a stainless steel bracelet, bidirectional rotating bezel, automatic movement and domed plexi-glass, it remains a
classic design today.

Following the success of these films for IWC, they made a range of models that used similar styling including the IWC
