Rolex Submariner

The Rolex Submariner has been one of the most popular professional watches since its introduction in 1954 at the Basel Watch Fair. This watch model has made Rolex the authority for divers watches. This time period after WWII is when the first divers watches began to appear on the market for “exploration” both on military and civilian sides. During this first decade of the Submariners development, the unidirectional rotating bezel was introduced along with the crown guard. The unidirectional bezel served as a tool for divers to set time limits for their dive without the possibility of accidentally nudging the bezel the wrong way resulting in either a shortness of oxygen or a bad case of the bends. The Crown guard of course, served as system to protect the crown and thus protect the interior components of the watch.
