Unidirectional Rotatable Bezel
The Submariner's rotatable bezel is a key functionality of the watch. Its 60-minute graduations allow a diver to accurately and safely monitor diving time and decompression stops. Manufactured by Rolex from a hard, corrosion-resistant ceramic, the Cerachrom bezel insert is virtually scratchproof. A luminescent capsule on the zero marker ensures legibility, no matter how dark the environment. The bezel's knurled edge is carefully designed to offer excellent grip under water, even with gloves.
The dial's luminescent Chromalight display is an innovation that improved visibility in dark environments, an essential feature for divers. Hour markers in simple shapes - triangles, circles, rectangles - and broad hour and minute hands enable instant and reliable reading to prevent any risk of confusion underwater.
Gold is coveted for its lustre and nobility. Steel reinforces strength and reliability. Together, they harmoniously combine the best of their properties. A true Rolex signature, Rolesor has featured on Rolex models since the early 1930s, and was trademarked as a name in 1933. It is one of the prominent pillars of the Oyster collection.
All Rolex watches are assembled by hand with the utmost care to ensure exceptional quality. Such high standards naturally restrict Rolex production capacity and, at times, the demand for Rolex watches outpaces this capacity.
Therefore, the availability of certain models may be limited. New Rolex watches are exclusively sold by Official Rolex Jewelers, who receive regular deliveries and independently manage the allocation and sales of watches to customers.
Joseph-Anthony Fine Jewelry is proud to be part of the worldwide network of Official Rolex Jewelers and can provide information on the availability of Rolex watches.
A benchmark among divers' watches, the Oyster Perpetual Submariner embodies the historic link between Rolex and the underwater world. It fea-tures a unidirectional rotatable bezel and solid-link Oyster bracelet. The latest generation Sub-mariner and Submariner Date remain faithful to the original model launched in 1953. In watch-making, the Submariner represented a historic turning point; it set the standard for divers' watches.
