Expected to fetch between £6,000-£8,000 at our Thursday 19th August auction.
The Rolex Submariner was introduced in 1954 and is an instantly recognisable classic. It enjoys a well-deserved reputation as ‘the’ divers watch and has seen a number of updates and improvements since it’s introduction. Part of the Oyster Perpetual line-up of Rolex watches, they are water resistant down to 1000ft and are known for their toughness and durability, able to withstand the extremes of deep sea diving. The Submariner is known as a ‘tool’ watch, due to it’s dive timer rotating bezel and is an essential part of any watch collection.
