Rolex watches are known around the world for their meticulous craftsmanship, exquisite design and flawless timekeeping. With more than 100 years of horological engineering experience, this Swiss watch manufacturing powerhouse has developed some of the most imitated wristwatches in existence. However, no matter how imitated, their build quality has never once been duplicated, due solely to Rolex's unrelenting pursuit and establishment of some of the highest engineering standards known to the industry. The company's Submariner collection is a stunning testament to Rolex's unsurpassed watch manufacturing expertise.
Originally developed in the early 1950s, Rolex's Submariner collection set the standard for the production of all diving watches following it. It remains the standard 60 years later. Featuring 40-millimeter cases constructed of 904L brushed stainless steel, 18k yellow gold, white gold, or a combination of stainless steel and gold, Rolex's iconic oyster cases are constructed to last for generations. Dials are available in jet black, midnight blue, deep green, 18k yellow gold and stainless steel, and are adorned with Rolex's classic luminescent circular and rectangular indices, with an inverted triangle at 12 o'clock. Most watches in the collection sport Cerachrom bezels of the same color as the dial, but in some instances, the bezel is a different color. All bezels rotate unidirectionally and feature a 60-minute gradation for quick and accurate measurement of elapsed dive time. A large, magnified date window is set at the traditional three o'clock position.
The superior 1,000 feet of water resistance for which the diving community covets this luxury timepiece is made possible by the patented, Rolex-designed triple-seal Triplock screw-down winding crown. Powering the Submariner is a Rolex-engineered and extremely precise COSC-certified automatic movement guaranteed to keep accurate time for generations.
