Introduced in 1954, the Rolex Submariner is ideally the most popular and successful watches in the world.
Rolex originally developed the model for scuba divers. However, the Submariner today excels far beyond to reach sports enthusiasts from different fields, musicians, Hollywood celebrities and more.
So, why the ubiquitous Rolex Submariner is so famous?
Here are some of the probable reasons:
Rolex watches are admired for their unrivalled build quality. The Rolex Submariner was considered as the definitive diver watch when it was introduced.
Today, the watch is made up of 904L stainless steel, making it much harder and more robust.
Moreover, the water resistance rating has enhanced to 300m.
With the new Parachrom blue hairspring, the in-house movement makes the watch more resistant to shocks and temperature changes.
The Rolex Submariner has hardly changed in its outward design over the years. However, the brand has offered the iconic watch some new improvements during its lifetime.
In 1988, Rolex fitted the highly durable and accurate Calibre 3135 with 31jewels and was yet equipped to the modern Submariner timepieces.
The manufacturer also upgraded the luminous material used on the Submariner’s hands and dial.
Moreover, a photoluminescent compound replaced the older radioactive tritium during the late 1990s.
The Rolex Submariner is sporty enough to match with t-shirt and jeans as well as classy enough to look perfect beneath a tuxedo sleeve.
This iconic dive timepiece enjoys one of the highest resale values in the second hand market.
