The Rolex Submariner is a world-class watch with a long history of excellence that not only defines the Submariner, but the Rolex company in itself. Rolex debuted the Submariner in 1953 as a divers watch, and despite getting minor tweaks over the years, its iconic design has remained largely unchanged over the years. Rolex’s goal with the Submariner was to create a watch that had peak performance underwater, but also flawless design that would enable it as an exquisite timepiece for everyday use. Today, the Rolex Submariner is revered around the world for those very attributes. Having been worn by some of the world’s most famous on-screen and real life celebrities including James Bond, Bruce Springsteen, and Steve McQueen, the Submariner has become one of the most popular Rolex watches of all time. In this article, our experts at WatchesAndWatches.com give you an inside look at some of our favorite Rolex Submariner models, providing you with all the details you need to know about this classic watch.
