The Quintessential Dive Watch: Rolex Submariner

Looking much like the Rolex Deepsea 126600-0002, the Rolex Sea-Dweller Reference 126600-0001 is also elegant in Oystersteel case and glossy black dial. A few of the differences mainly lie at the water-resistance and date screen. The Rolex Deepsea Oystersteel includes a 1,220m water-resistance, which will be 2,680m than the Rolex Deepsea. And unlike the Rolex Deepsea, the Sea-Dweller’ date display is visible under a Cyclops lens.
But, exactly like the Rolex Deepsea, the Sea-Dweller Reference 126600-0002 includes the in-house Calibre 3235 motion. It runs on a solid power reserve of 70 hours. It also features unidirectional rotatable bezel, and a screw-down crown with Triplock triple watertight system. Its black dial also features Chromalight display with long-lasting blue luminescence for maximum legibility from the dark. It is likewise COSC-certified and contains a matching Oystersteel bracelet to complement its general layout. Now, let’s discuss the original Rolex dive watch, the Rolex Submariner. Introduced in 1953, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner is one of the first dive wristwatches to do the feat of mapping a depth of 100 metres underwater. It had been the second in position following Rolex launched the world’s first waterproof timepiece known as the Oyster back in 1926.
The Rolex Submariner is a more advanced version encased with the engineering demanded by divers. Having a re-imagined case of the original Rolex Oyster, the Rolex Submariner comes with a different dial with luminous hour markers. Additionally, it boasts a rotatable bezel with corrosion-resistant Cerachrom insertions and the first Oyster bracelet. The new generation Submariner watches draw inspiration and stay true to the style aesthetics of their original version.
