“The Rolex Submariner’s robust and functional design swiftly became iconic. With their subtly redesigned Oyster case, distinctive dial with large luminescent hour markers, graduated rotatable Cerachrom bezel and solid link Oyster bracelet, the latest generation Submariner and Submariner Date are firmly in line with the original model launched in 1953.” -ROLEX
The Submariner Date Watch is priced at $8,550. It’s made up of exotic steel, sapphire crystal, Cerachrom ceramic, jewels, 18k gold and platinum. But this is NOT jewelry.
This Rolex is equal parts tool watch and diving watch, or essentially the ultimate EDC luxury sports watch.
It’s robust as f*ck but handsome as hell and functions like the engineering marvel that it is. Definitively making the Sub a watch you can rock anywhere for anything and at any time for the rest of your life and beyond.
Officially called the ‘Oyster Perpetual Rolex Submariner Date Watch Reference 116610LN’, it’s the watch I didn’t know I always wanted but also something I would never actually buy.
It was a gift given to me for 10 years of service by my former employer as part of my retirement. When I first received it back in 2012, I treated it as a delicate piece of jewelry, never wearing it and keeping it as an expensive paperweight on my desk for months.
