The Submariner is one of Rolex’s all-time classic watches, offering high-quality functionality alongside a robust and attractive design. This model was the world’s very first to be water resistant to a depth of 100m, and was specifically designed for use by professional divers. Outclassing all other watches of its time in terms of deep-sea performance - even in highly salty conditions - the Submariner has developed a lasting reputation as the “Diver’s Friend”.
Created in 1953, the Submariner was the favoured timepiece of Jacques Cousteau, one of the most famous underwater explorers of all time, as well as appearing in 3 James Bond films during the 1960s and 70s. This iconic model remains the popular choice of watch for divers to this day, thanks to its superb underwater functions and ruggedly stylish, scratch-proof sports design.
