Rolex has had many interesting collaborations and themes when it comes to their collection some being received more than other. One of the most successful collections is the Oyster Submariner, a watch that is specially designed for divers, a watch that celebrates Rolex’s passion for the water world.
The watch has a 40 mm case, making it a perfect size for any wrist, big or small. It is finished with an impeccable stainless steel and can come with several dial colors. It is considered one of the best diver watches in history not only due to its amazing technical features and endurance, but also because it is a beautiful watch, one that became popular even with people who never used the watch while diving.
The watch has a 60 year history, appearing for the first time in the early 1950’s. It was the first water-resistant watch to be able to withstand dives to depths of 100 meters. Since that time, Rolex has greatly improved the technology and materials behind the watch, creating a more durable watch that can reach depths of over 300 meters. However, in this case it isn’t the technical qualities that made the Submariner such a huge success. The simple elegance and beautiful design are the key features that made it one of the most beloved watches ever released by Rolex.
While the Rolex Submariner was a good watch ever, it was not until the 90s, in my opinion, the Rolex focused on the use of advanced production techniques and technology began to inject details so meticulously to the clock as possible.
The bezel, case and crown are almost identical being placed in exactly the right place and looking the part. The dial is also identical with everything from the watch numbering to the classic Rolex logo to the hour, minute and seconds hands.
