The Rolex “Submariner” Watch

The Rolex “Submariner” Watch


 The Rolex Submariner watch, also known as the “James Bond Watch,” was designed and created for the first time in 1954.  It was created specifically for members of the Australian Navy.  The watch is designed for diving (maximum depth is 300metres/1000ft) and is known for its high resistance to water and its ability to withstand temperatures dipping below zero Celsius.  The bezel is even designed to rotate counterclockwise so that the immersion time becomes shorter in case the bezel is moved during a dive.  This instant classic is one of Rolex’s Oyster Perpetual Professional Line and has appeared in over eleven James Bond movies.
