If you’re a new Rolex
fan, the Rolex Submariner is the model that started the dive watch craze. Soon after its release, other luxury watch brands began to release their own versions, but until today, it’s the Rolex Submariner that rules this category. So, if you’re a dive watch lover, it pays to know the king watch to measure other dive watches against. To begin with, the Submariner is not the most luxurious or most durable dive watch today, just as the Swiss Victorinox
isn’t the strongest pocket knife, but it’s the most iconic. Rather, the dive watch carries with it Rolex’s reputation for accuracy and quality mechanical watches. Specifically, this dive watch features the Rolex caliber 3130 or 3135, which are renowned for its Parachrom
hairsprings and two days of power reserve. Being the original dive watch, too, makes it a highly regarded model.
Rolex is available at Schiffman's in Winston-Salem and at Friendly Center.
