The first Rolex Submariner was launched in 1953 and has become an iconic model, notable for its unique dial with luminescent hour markers. It also has a graduated rotatable Cerachrom bezel, a key asset of the watch which allows divers to precisely measure their tracks, from starts and stops to pauses. In addition to being waterproof, the Submariner dial is also highly resistant to scratches due to its origin from a “corrosion-resistant ceramic”. Additionally, the bezel has a “knurled edge”, specifically intended to offer a strong hold for divers underwater.
The Rolex Submariner has calibre 3135 and has passed the tests of the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC), making it certified as a Swiss chronometer. The movement also has a Parachrom hairspring, which improves resistance to temperature differentiations and shocks.
Rolex Submariner’s come with Oyster bracelets, an Oysterlock clasp and Glidelock, important for preventing the clasp from opening itself. This also allows adjustments to the sizing of the bracelet to be made without the use of tools.
