The Introduction of an Icon: The Fascinating History of the Rolex Submariner

The Rolex Submariner is the ultimate diving watch. First launched in 1953, the Submariner was the first waterproof divers’ wristwatch. Notably, a diver could take the watch up to 330 feet beneath the surface without any damage to the watch. The Rolex Oyster heralded the Submariner as the first waterproof wristwatch in 1926. However, Rolex took this technology to the next level with the release of the Submariner. The iconic Rolex represented a historic turning point in the history of watchmaking that set the standard for divers’ watches. Today, the Submariner’s oyster case guarantees waterproof to a depth of 1000 feet!
