Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date

 

STYLE OF THE ROLEX SUBMARINER

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner’s robust and functional design swiftly became iconic. With their subtly redesigned Oyster case, distinctive dial with large luminescent hour markers, graduated rotatable Cerachrom bezel and solid link Oyster bracelet, the latest generation Submariner and Submariner Date are firmly in line with the original model launched in 1953.

Equally at home underwater and at a gala dinner, the Rolex Submariner models set new standards of robustness, reliability, comfort and timeless sporting style.

The Chromalight display on the dial is an innovation that pushes the boundaries of visibility in dark environments. The blue glow lasts up to eight hours with a uniform luminosity throughout, practically twice as long as that of standard luminescent materials.

SPIRIT OF THE ROLEX SUBMARINER – UNDERWATER WORLD

Since time immemorial, mankind has been spellbound by the sea and the mystery of its uncharted depths. The deep remained beyond reach until the irrepressible desire for exploration, coupled with boundless human ingenuity, gave rise to the technology that would enable men to catch a glimpse of the underwater world. The Rolex Submariner was first created in the pioneering era of scuba diving.

SPIRIT OF THE ROLEX SUBMARINER – BIRTH OF THE ROLEX OYSTER

The Rolex Oyster case is a central part of Rolex’s history. Clamped shut like an oyster shell, it can survive under water thanks to two major innovations: a screw-down back and bezel and a screw-down waterproof winding crown. Invented by Rolex in 1926, the Oyster case was put to a real-life test a year later when Mercedes Gleitze, a young sportswoman, swam the English Channel wearing a Rolex Oyster.

After more than 10 hours in the cold water, her watch remained fully functional, firmly establishing Rolex’s legendary underwater expertise.

SPIRIT OF THE ROLEX SUBMARINER – A PERFECT PARTNER ON LAND OR IN THE SEA

We invented the Rolex Submariner to work perfectly 660 feet under the sea. It seems to work pretty well at any level.

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date is the benchmark for divers and those who are passionate about the underwater world.
