The Benefits of Rolex Submariner Watches

October 8, 2013

Rolex Watches have earned a reputation as being one of the finest watch makers in the world. The Rolex name is world renowned for quality and beauty. And the ruggedness of the Submariner Oyster Perpetual watches makes it ideal for deep sea diving and other adventures. The first Submariner was introduced by Rolex Watches nearly 60 years ago in 1954 at the Swiss Watch Fair.

An example of this joining together of ruggedness and style is the Submariner’s use in the James Bond movies. The author of the Bond novels only mentioned the brand name Rolex, but when it came time to make the movie, producers chose the Submariner as the watch of choice for Secret Service agent James Bond. Throughout the 50 years of Bond films, one thing has remained the same, the combination of action and style. And the same can be said of the Rolex Submariner.

 

 

Part of what makes the Submariner an excellent dive watch is also what makes it a stylish watch; it is simple and elegant. Dive watches must be easily visible for murky underwater conditions. This led to a simple, but elegant, design that has been coveted by divers and non-divers alike. The time indicators on the Rolex Submariner boldly stand out against deeply colored backgrounds, and the bezel also features a simple, clean look, and unidirectional turning for diver safety.

It’s no wonder that a watch with such universal capabilities is so universally cherished across the globe. Both durable and classy, a submariner fits in anywhere; whether it’s under the sea, hiking or skiing a mountain, in the boardroom, or at a formal event. It has become THE watch to own for anyone and everyone. The Rolex Submariner is synonymous with someone who gets dirty, but cleans up nicely.
