A classic design that is unmistakably Rolex, the Submariner was first introduced in 1953. Designed principally as a watch for divers, the submariner was initially water resistant to 200m. The model has undergone numerous evolutions over the years, with the current version resistant to 300m. The watch features a bezel which lets divers know how much time they have left under water; unidirectional to prevent accidental turning in an unsafe way. The Submariner range includes numerous designs and material options in addition to the classic and ever popular black bezel on steel design, and was also the watch worn by Sean Connery's Bond in several movies.
Revolutionising the diving world, the aqua-lung, one of Jacques Cousteauís inventions made diving much easier and in fact, more accessible. Rolex then commissioned Jacques to help test this new watch for divers. The Submariner watch made its way into the main market and became one of, if not, the most successful diverís watches in history.
Regarded as an iconic watch due to the robust and functional design, the Rolex Submariner has been updated in various generations since the original model launched in 1953. As at home on the land as it is in the depths of the seas and oceans, the Rolex Submariner is irresistibly attractive with features not seen on any other Rolex models.
What makes this watch one of the best is the ability to perform for divers across the world at depths of up to 1,000 feet while also offering a rugged elegance on land. Itís an indispensable instrument for many divers for this feature and will be for years to come.
