What makes a Submariner so special?

To say which watch has become the most popular in recent years, I think submersion watch are well-deserved first.

submersion watch:

The submersion watch is highly recognizable, and the rotating chronograph bezel is its biggest feature. The scales on the rotating bezel are 10, 20, 30, and 50, because the general diving oxygen cylinder can only last for 45 minutes. This rotating bezel acts as a reminder of the diving time.
In order to resist the high pressure underwater, structurally, the diving watch adopts a unique screw-in waterproof crown. Because the crown position is the most likely place for water to enter the entire watch, a waterproof apron made of rubber is added to the connection of the crown. When the crown is tightened, the water is tightly isolated from the watch.

let’s talk about the most representative in the diving watch industry, the Rolex Submariner!


Launched in 1953, the Submariner was the first divers’ wristwatch waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet). This was the second great breakthrough in the technical mastery of waterproofness, following the invention of the Oyster, the world’s first waterproof wristwatch, in 1926. In watchmaking, the Submariner represented a historic turning point; it set the standard for divers’ watches. Today, the Submariner is waterproof to a depth of 300 metres (1,000 feet).


As an underwater survival tool. this watch’s design has been entirely dictated by the practical needs of divers. Since 1953, the Submariner has evolved technically and aesthetically as it has been endowed with features to improve overall functionality. The first watch was a pioneer and its subsequent versions have continued to set the benchmark for divers’ watches.


The Submariner’s rotatable bezel is a key functionality of the watch.Its engraved 60-minute graduations allow a diver to accurately and safely monitor diving time and decompression stops.
