First created in 1953, the Rolex Submariner is the quintessential divers’ watch. Since its creation, the Rolex Submariner has boasted consistently beautiful design and enjoyed exceptional popularity – making it an instantly recognisable Rolex icon and the benchmark for all divers’ watches.
LEGEND OF THE DEPTHS
Cleverly created for life both on land and in the dark ocean depths, the Chromalight hands and hour markers emit a blue luminescent glow for optimum legibility. Functional and intrinsically technical, the bezel’s knurled edge offers excellent grip when manipulating it to set dive time, whilst its style and triangular zero marker contribute to the model’s emblematic visual identity.
Robust aquatic capability is ensured by the characteristically shaped middle case, crafted from a solid block of gold or steel. Much like a submarine’s hatch, the winding crown screws securely against the case, offering optimal protection for the Rolex Submariner’s high-precision mechanical movement. Security is also provided in the bracelet’s Oysterlock safety clasp, which prevents accidental opening.
Like all Rolex watches, each Rolex Submariner is fitted with a COSC-certified chronometer – a successfully and thoroughly tested self-winding mechanical movement – and is certified to perform at a superlative level as a fully assembled watch. The superlative certification assessment conditions exclusive to Rolex exceed those of watchmaking norms and simulate real-life watch wearing, giving a more representative experience to guarantee performance on the wrist.
The Rolex Submariner is highly sought after and as such, is often not on display at 87 George Street, Edinburgh. To enquire as to the model’s availability, or to view our other watches, please contact the experts at our showroom in Edinburgh.
