While the Submariner has its origins as a practical tool watch, these watches have arguably superseded their original purpose. The original references were only produced in steel, but beginning in 1969, Rolex began to offer a solid gold dive watch in the form of the ref. 1680. A tacit acknowledgement of how watches were increasingly seen as status symbols, the gold watch was unapologetically luxurious. Despite this, they were (and still are) being built with the strictest of Rolex standards in mind, meaning that they're able to back up their flashy appearance with solid and reliable performance.

Rolex's Submariner is to many the definitive wristwatch. From its origins as a diver's companion and James Bond's wristwatch, the Submariner has ingrained itself into popular culture like no watch before or since. Worn and loved by bankers, rappers and watch enthusiasts alike, the Submariner possibly the most culturally significant piece of horology ever.


Known by many simply as "the Crown", Rolex has certainly done much to deserve its reputation. From its founding just over a century ago by a German immigrant in the UK, Rolex has grown to become an international behemoth, recognisable (and indeed visible) across the globe.

Compared to other modern watchmakers, Rolex is in the near-unique position where its vintage watches have developed an almost entirely distinct collector base. It's no surprise, however, given the diversity and iconic status of so many Rolex models. The vintage Rolex community has arguably brought vintage watch collecting into the mainstream by shedding light on the beauty of old, worn watches which had so long been ignored by most.
