Rolex Submariner | Chesapeake Pawn and Gun in Chesapeake Virginia
The Submariner now features the “cathedral” or “Mercedes” hand set, unlike the “pencil” style hands which were a staple of the earlier models of the 1950’s. Other new movements and small cosmetic changes have been added to the Submariner, which now features the Submariner name on the dial, and offers two options for the crown: both the oversized winding crown and the small crown. The unidirectional bezel allows divers to track their immersion time. The bezel only rotates in a counterclockwise direction, meaning that the time can only be made shorter; the danger of spending too much time underwater is non-existent. Part of the Oyster Perpetual line, the self-winding watch features a perpetual rotor wherein even the slightest of movements power the watch. The watch will continue to keep time for up to three days with no movement as a result of the energy stored in the mainspring.
Rolex has been the leader of innovation in timekeeping. Rolex was the first brand to invent the waterproof watch case, the first to invent a date feature on the dial, the first to invent a dual timezone (GMT) timepiece, and the first to achieve the coveted COSC chronometer certification. Rolex had the maritime adventurer in mind when it created the Oyster Perpetual Submariner with water resistance at depths of 300 meters. The Rolex watch is a pathway to a timeless tradition.
