There are just a few timepieces out there that enjoy the same fame and functionality as the Rolex Submariner does. This stylish and precise instrument is ideal for professional divers who need a reliable watch for exploring the deepest parts of the ocean. Both sea adventurers and fashionable business men adore wearing this model on their wrist, a model that gets everyone attention and makes a bold style statement.
The watch has many invaluable qualities, but without a doubt the most important and appreciated ones are the classy design, the impressive 300 meters water resistance, the elegance of the Oyster case and the innovative Cerachrom bezel. The Submariner is one of Rolex’s best-selling designs, a sleek and popular time keeping device that offers the ideal combination of aesthetics and functionality.
Perhaps the black dial black bezel and silver case version is a more classic choice, but if you really want to impress then you should definitely consider the Submariner with blue dial blue bezel and two tone case. This luxurious and chic model emphasizes the charm and appeal of a chic color combination. Vibrant colors, precious materials and refined forms are the key ingredients of its successful design.
There is nothing more charismatic than this vibrant blue dial that is complemented by white luminescent hour markers outlined by thin gold margins. All the writing on the face of the watch is gold colored, the hands are also manufactured from 18 k yellow gold and at the 3 o’clock our attention is captured by the white large date window with its 2.5X Cyclops lens. Now getting back to the luminescent material, this is actually the patented Chromalight- a very powerful and intense lume that lights up for about 8 hours with a distinctive blue glow. It offers maximum legibility even in the darkest environments.
At the outside of the dial the focus point is the shiny blue Cerachrom bezel. This rotatable Rolex bezel is the most functional part of the watch. For safely and accurately monitoring decompression stops and diving time, it is engraved with gold color 60-minutes graduations. The revolutionary Cerachrom is actually a scratch proof and corrosion resistant ceramic that has been invented exclusively by the brand. At the 12 o’clock position, the bezel is marked with a luminescent dot that makes it readable even in the dark. Its knurled edge makes it easy for divers to use it even when wearing diving gloves.
The Rolex Submariner has what most watch fans call a large size case. Its 904L stainless steel Oyster case measures 40 mm in diameter and it is representative for the brand’s exquisite craftsmanship. Elegant, comfortable and durable, the case includes 3 different parts- the monobloc middle case, the famous triple lock screw down crown and a solid screw down case back.
The high quality automatic movement that boosts this spectacular timepiece is the Rolex Manufacture 3135 Calibre. This very accurate and durable mechanism bears all the distinctive aspects of a complex and flawlessly constructed self-winding movement- it was certified by the notorious Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute, it has a high resistance to shocks and temperature variations and a stop seconds for precise time setting.
To complement the elegant design of the watch, Rolex decided to use the classy and comfortable flat three piece links Oyster bracelet that comes with a Glidelock extension system and a folding Oysterlock safety clasp.
The Rolex Submariner is by far the superlative in luxury diving watches. This modern, refined and functional timepiece is excellent for those who have a pronounced passion for water sports and style. Both under water and on land, this model fascinates with spectacular performances and aesthetics.
