The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date exhibits a special mood when presented in Rolesor. The contrasting combination of rugged Oystersteel and lustrous 18ct gold brings to the fore the go-anywhere nature and the awe-inspiring refinement that co-exist in the Submariner Date.
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.
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 dial matches in color, coming in a glossy, lacquered black with high-contrast white texts and markings.
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 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.
On the wrist and during daily wear, theSubmariner 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 — without sacrificing anything from its iconic design.
Powered by the Manufacture Rolex Caliber 3135, this Superlative Chronometer has been tested and certified by the independent COSC, as well as Rolex’s extremely thorough and stringent in-house quality control procedures. The latter concerns accuracy, water resistance, power reserve, self-winding efficiency and more.
