Released in 1954, the Tudor Submariner divers watch boasts a resistance to depths of up to 660 feet. The mighty 40 mm case is equipped with a domed acrylic crystal, waterproof crown, and bidirectional rotating bezel. The 60-minute increments and serrated edges allow the wearer to calculate increments of time while in the water with ease.
The case is accompanied by a genuine stainless steel bracelet, creating a handsome “companion” for every day. The bezel is aged with the contrasting luminous hour markers and sweeping “Snowflake” hands on the blue dial. This model of wristwatch was used by the French Navy Corps, especially by the diving and mine-clearing troops. Clearly visible on the back the engraving: “Original Oyster Case by Rolex Geneva – MN 79” (Marine Nationale Française, 1979).
