Black Submariner Watches

It is said that the color black pairs well with everything, and never goes out of style. Similar statements have been made about Rolex legendary dive watch, and it comes at no surprise that black is the classic color of the Rolex Submariner.

Although Rolex now offers the Submariner in several different colors, black was the original (and only) color available when Rolex first released the now-legendary dive watch in 1954. For well over half a century, black has remained a hallmark of the Rolex Submariner and there has not been a single year in which the Submariner was produced that it did not have the option of a black dial and bezel insert.

While certainly more understated than the blue or green counterparts, the Rolex Submariner in black is instantly recognizable, and can easily be dressed up or down to suit the occasion.

Rolex has firmly asserted itself as an international symbol of personal success, and as a result, many more people are wearing their Submariners with suits and formal attire than they did back in 1954, when the Submariner was primarily a diving instrument, rather than a luxury timepiece.

A black Rolex Submariner is easier to dress up for black tie events than those with other dial and bezel insert colors. When worn on a nice leather strap, a black Rolex Submariner can easily be paired with any suit or tuxedo for even the most formal occasions.

While Rolex only produces the green Submariner in stainless steel, and blue dial variants are only manufactured in Rolesor (two-tone) and solid 18-karat gold, prospective buyers have their choice of purchasing a black Submariner in whichever metal configuration they prefer.

Black goes well with everything, and it never falls out of style. Given the timeless deign of the Submariner, it seems fitting for black to be the original color in which the legendary dive watch was offered. Few other watches have the ability to seem as natural in the boardroom as they do beneath the ocean surface; and this unparalleled level of versatility has enabled the Submariner become a true classic.

For over half a century, the Rolex Submariner with a back dial and bezel insert has been a constant among Rolex offerings. Although it has now become quite a common sight, the Rolex Submariner in black is a classic pairing that has certainly endured the test of time.
