Rolex Submariner

The Rolex Submariner is a famous dive watch manufactured by Rolex. It is water resistant at 300m. The Submariner can be bought without a date function. If it comes with a date function, then a magnifying glass (also called "Cyclops") will be present on the lens. The case of the Rolex Sub is 40mm wide and 13mm high. Depending on the models, the watch can be made of Rolex's proprietary Oystersteel 904L or other precious metals such as gold. The hour markers are made of 18ct white gold to prevent tarnishing over time.

  • Ref: 116610
  • Diameter: 40.00 mm
  • Thickness: 13.00 mm
  • Lug width: 20.00 mm
  • Caliber: Rolex 3130

The Rolex movement 3130, successor of the 3135, powers this timepiece. The Rolex has a comfortable dimension and is a very versatile timepiece that can be worn at all times. The lug width of this watch is 20mm which means it will accommodate a lot of straps. The Rolex Submariner can frequently be seen worn by actors: you probably have seen Roger Moore incarnating James Bond wearing one. In terms of value, you can get one for $7500. This is one of the few timepieces that will retain its retail value and might even increase in price over time. Some people will just buy it as an investment and it might never leave their safe - which we find sad for such a beautiful timepiece...
