Rolex Submariner

The 40s of the last century were of great importance in conquering the underwater world, with Jacques Cousteau’s forays into the depths of the oceans bringing the fascination of the infinite world below the water’s surface to the public eye. With this in mind, Rolex introduced the Submariner in 1953, developed as a professional underwater timer and indispensable piece of equipment to give the diver vital control over his dive time.

65 years later, the Rolex Submariner has undergone countless changes and lived through an extremely exciting history, yet remaining true to its essential characteristics. It is considered the diver’s watch par excellence, with its distinctive shape, characterized by the rotating bezel, which has been copied and rebuilt time and again and has long been one of the great design and watch icons. This has earned it, among other things, the dubious fame as the “most often counterfeited watch in the world”…
