The Unparalleled Rolex Submariner
The Rolex Submariner is the world’s most recognizable Rolex. Perhaps it was the mystique behind James Bond’s chosen timepiece. Similarly, the Oyster Perpetual Submariner was the first timepiece capable of submerging to 100 meters. Rolex released the Submariner in 1954. It became the first diver’s watch. It is a tool watch of the highest caliber and is highly sought after by collectors and first time Rolex owners all over the world. This has driven up the value of these timepieces in recent years.
However, Rolex never rested on its success. It continued to develop the Submariner. It added a cyclops lens over the date window. Then, Rolex increased water resistance to 1000 feet in the Submariner. It added 12,800 feet of resistance in the Sea-Dweller models.
The Submariner has seen subtle changes over the years. Rolex added a Sapphire crystal to add scratch resistance to its already robust case. The case is built out of solid materials. The classic stainless steel. Yellow gold. , White gold. And two-tone gold. The timepiece comes in both a model with a date window and a no-date option. The no-date submariner only comes in stainless steel.
