Rolex Submariner 16618

The story of the Rolex Submariner is an illustrious one, making history in 1953 as the world’s first dive watch capable of being water-resistant to a depth of 100 meters (330 feet). Developed as a diver’s tool, it was equipped with a rotating 60-minute bezel to safely time decompression stops and luminescent details for visibility in the ocean’s vast darkness. Over the years, the Submariner has undergone countless upgrades, in addition to taking on a number of differing looks using a range of materials, colors, and design details. For more than half a century, the Rolex Submariner has remained the gold standard in luxury diving watches.
