The iconic watch for the diver. Its legacy runs deep within Rolex as part of the Oyster family, which marked the first waterproof timepiece to ever come on the market. Remarkably, the Submariner line became the ideal piece for deep sea divers. Rolex says themselves, "A true divers' watch by design".
The Submariner was introduced in 1958 and was in production for a reliable 20 years. This piece, model 5512, year 1978, signified the last release year of this line of timepieces. Over time, the eloquent model is now considered a sought after piece as a rarity over its counterpart, model 5513.
The Submariner is without a doubt one of the most successful Rolex models in history. Not only because of its extraordinary esteem as a diver’s watch. It also enjoyed great marketing attention: For instance, as fondly displayed as the watch of choice in several of James Bond's adventurous exploits. Aside from its undeniable functionality, the Submariner may also applaud its success to its elegance as a timeless dress watch.
