On the wrist and during daily wear, the Submariner Date in Yellow Rolesor looks and feels truly special. The addition of precious gold, manufactured in Rolex’s very own gold foundry, means an additional touch of lightness, color and preciousness for the Submariner

Water resistant to a depth of 300 meters (equivalent to approximately 1,000 feet), the latest generation Submariner and Submariner Date remain faithful to the original model launched in 1953.

Back then, the Submariner represented a historic turning point; it set the standard for divers’ watches.

Now, close to 70 years on, it arguably reigns as the most recognizable dive watch design — one that, through tireless fine-tuning, has taken dive watch aesthetics and construction to their limits.

Noble, yet rugged, elegant, yet sporty: the Submariner ranks among those Rolex watches which truly do it all

The Oyster case features bold lugs with a powerful stance, flanking the solid endlinks of the three-link Oyster bracelet. The bezel is crafted from a solid block of 18ct yellow gold, with an exceptionally scratch-resistant Cerachrom ceramic bezel insert — also available in blue, but in black on this variation.

The indices as well as the hands are in 18ct yellow gold: a truly rare and exotic sight on a Submariner and one to be appreciated.

The date, revealed at 3 o’clock and enhanced by a cyclops magnifier, means additional real-world utility in the Submariner Date.

With an instantaneous jump at midnight and rapid setting, using this date display is easy and intuitive.

The 18ct yellow gold, manufactured in Rolex’s very own gold foundry, is capable of transforming from a warm, rich yellow into a lustrous golden color of a colder temperature. Yet another among the Submariner Date Yellow Rolesor’s mesmerizing details

The crown in 18ct yellow gold is secured by the Triplock triple waterproofness system, using a special arrangement of threads and gaskets to ensure the Rolex Submariner Date easily maintains its water resistance.

Notably, the crown must be secured by screwing it down its threads to ensure water tightness.

Beyond shapes and colors, textures play a major, yet underrated role in determining how a watch appears. The Submariner Date relies on smooth, yet sharply pronounced details throughout its construction

The latter concerns accuracy, water resistance, power reserve, self-winding efficiency and more.
