The Rolex Submariner, launched in 1954, was produced by Rolex for the diving community. Today, it is without a doubt the most popular watch in the world and is on the wish list of every fan of the watch - whether they dive or not.
It is no different in the world of high-profile athletes, actors, musicians, and tasters. The Rolex Submariner is essential in their watch collections, with some of them owning several models.

For Rolex Submariner cleaners, nothing catches the classic stainless steel and black Rolex Submariner. The Submariner 5512 and 5513 are the ancestors of today's steel Submariners because they embody the original Submariner - uncomplicated to date, stainless steel with an acrylic crystal and crown protectors. The 5513 was very well worn by Steve McQueen and by Sean Connery and Roger Moore as James Bond.

Rolex has produced several solid yellow gold versions of the Submariner - ref 16808 with a nipple suction, ref 16618 of the 90s, and current ref 16618. The contrast between the gold construction, and the black and bezel dial, certainly enhances the watch side of the diver in the appearance department and gives it a more luxurious feel.

A tool watch made fully in 18k white gold? Only Rolex can think of it. The Rolex Submariner 116619, or "The Smurf," also comes with a bright blue dial and bezel, and features Sub illuminating markers and Mercedes's hands. It may be strange for an ultra-luxury watch to be used for diving, but Smurf can do it, and do it well.

Other fans: Brad Pitt, Cara Delevigne
If a gold Submariner is too extravagant for your taste, you can get the best of both worlds with a Rolesor, or a two-tone stainless steel and 18k yellow gold model. Two-color watches are a hit of the younger crowd, who like a hint of warmth in the underrated watch. Just get the trigger from Nick Jonas.

A modern, unorthodox watch for those who want a watch that does not come out of the box.
