History Lesson: The First Submariner

Post by koimaster » July 1st 2019, 9:04am

All legends have a beginning, and for the Rolex Submariner, that beginning is the reference 6204. Rolex’s catalog is home to numerous horological icons; however arguably no other watch is more ‘quintessentially Rolex’ than their Submariner.

Nearly every single dive watch that exists today was (in some way or another) influenced by the Rolex Submariner – which for many, is immediately visible in their respective designs. While it holds a very special place within the history and heritage of Rolex, the Submariner is also one a very small handful of names that belong to an elite circle of watches that have pioneered and indelibly influenced an entire genre of time-telling devices.

From deep below the surface of the ocean, to the wrist of James Bond on the silver screen, the Rolex Submariner has become an internationally-recognized cultural icon, and arguably one of the most important and influential timepieces ever created.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
