Rolex Submariner is the archetype of the diver’s watch. It is not just a robust professional instrument, but also a very functional and fashionable design. Initially, created to serve as a diving timepiece, over the years the Submariner has evolved into a very stylish and popular luxury model, preferred by countless watches enthusiasts all over the globe.
The modern and sturdy Oyster case, the elegant dial with highly visible luminescent hour markers, the amazing 300 meters water resistance, graduated rotatable Cerachrom bezel and the comfortable solid Oster steel band are just a few of its highlights. This iconic watch has many aesthetic and functional qualities, every single one of them representing the result of decades of research and development work. Nowadays, the Rolex Submariner is the ultimate symbol for performance and success.
First introduced in 1953, the Submariner’s core design hasn’t changed that much. Rolex has mostly been concerned with bringing qualitative improvements both in terms of form and utility. The latest generation of Submariner features numerous improvements that make the watch even more precise, durable and stylish.
The dial respects the classic layout. The black matte surface is enhanced by over-sized Chromalight hour markers, silver hands coated with the same luminescent material and a sleek date window at 3 o’clock magnified by a 2.5X Cyclops lens. The Chromalight innovation is designed to offer maximum visibility even in the darkest places. This special lume has a distinctive blue glow that usually lasts for about 8 hours- two times more than the usual luminescent materials. Around the outside of the dial there is a classy unidirectional rotatable Cerachrom bezel that has 60-minutes gradations. The bezel is made from scratch resistant Cerachrom insert in ceramic and comes with numerals and graduations coated in platinum.
The subtle 904L stainless steel Oyster case measures 40 mm in diameter and it features the distinctive Rolex oyster architecture. It is composed of a monobloc middle case, a triple-lock screw down winding crown and a solid stainless steel screw down case back.
The watch is powered by an impressive 3135 Calibre which is a very precise self-winding mechanical movement produced exclusively by Rolex. Just like all Rolex Perpetual mechanisms, the 3135 Calibre has been certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute for its high precision and extreme durability. This very reliable movement includes a Parachrom hairspring that offers better resistance to temperature and shocks changes.
The flat three piece links Oyster bracelet is the ideal combination of function and form, technology and design, created to be extremely comfortable and robust. The band comes with a folding Oysterlock safety clasp with Rolex Glidelock extension system. The special safety clasp prevents it from opening accidentally while the Glidelock allows you to adjust the length of the bracelet without using special tools.
The Rolex Submariner does not need any presentations. It is an iconic timepiece that is well-known for its abilities of diving at depths of 300 meters, impressive precision and flawless design. It is a gorgeous watch that has a unique horological charm.
