If there is one watch that is synonymous with diving, it’s the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner. It’s also the watch that James Bond wore until 1971 matching its rugged elegance perfectly with the spy’s persona. A benchmark in diving watches, the Submariner was introduced in 1953, coinciding with the dawn of scuba diving, and was the first watch to be water-resistant to 100 metres. Evolving over the years, the caseback and crown are sealed like the hatch of a submarine allowing the Submariner to reach depths of 300m without damaging the mechanical automatic movement. This handsome 40mm Submariner Date model features an eye-catching and scratch-resistant green ceramic insert on the dive bezel and a luminescent Chromalight display on the dial that emits a long-lasting blue glow in the dark. The famous Rolex Oyster bracelet has an ingenious system allowing the bracelet to expand or contract so you can fit it over your diving suit. As Sean Connery’s Bond so eloquently demonstrated, this is a diver’s watch that looks just as good with a dive suit as it does on terra firma with a tuxedo.
