The Rolex Submariner is one of the Kings of Swiss watchmaking. Because of the Submariner's commercial success, it is easy to forget that Rolex actually makes them to be professional quality diver's equipment – a "tool" or “instrument” watch in Rolex parlance. Just like how the Range Rovers in Beverly Hills seldom get driven in the mountains, it's unlikely that many 18k gold Submariners ever make it deeper than the deep end of a swimming pool. But that's okay; it's good to know that a Rolex can withstand whatever your arm can, and then some. No doubt, this is why the Submariner is so successful as a daily watch. You can buckle this watch on and forget about it for the next 20 years... all the while it will keep great time, look great, reflect your success in life and appreciate in value at the same time! How can you go wrong!?
18k gold case measures 40mm in diameter. Sapphire crystal and screw down crown ensure water resistance to 300 meters. Diver's bezel turns counter-clockwise only (by design) and serves as a count-up timer, so that divers can time and never overestimate the amount of time they have spent underwater. Bracelet is solid 18k gold Rolex Oyster with diver’s extension and flip-lock clasp.
