Design
Known in the Rolex industry as the ‘only diver’s watch that can be worn with a tuxedo’, the M116618LN-97208_ BLK Oyster Submarine Date is a sight to behold. It is an iconic diver’s watch that exudes luxury and affluence.

Made entirely of 18 ct yellow gold, this timepiece is accentuated with a black dial.  Apart from providing a break from the monotone of yellow gold, the dial doubles as a highly legible Chromalight. It is further endowed with a long lasting blue luminescence that is highly useful when diving underwater. The bezel is also made entirely in black and is unidirectional in nature. A Cerachrom insert in ceramic on the bezel prevents scratches. It is further provided with graduation up to 6 minutes, with the markings and numerals both etched out in gold.

The bracelet also made of 18ct gold is of the traditional flat oyster three piece link variety, with the oyster clasp added for greatest security. Scratch resistant sapphire glass over the dial protects the watch from accidental damage and increases its durability.

Features
Designed specifically for divers, this Submarine Date is equipped with all the features that a diver may require while swimming in the depths of the seas and oceans. The Chromalight of the dial and graduated bezel are the least of its functions.

The primary feature of this watch is its high water resistance and pressure tolerance. Seeking inspiration from the Oysters, this watch has a triplock system with a winding crown to provide maximum water resistance. Testing showed that while the timepiece is resistant up to 300 metres, it is tolerably waterproof at depths that are 25 percent deeper.

The date feature is also included on this model and is located at the 3 o’clock position. This is enhanced through the Cyclops glass placed over the date feature that magnifies the numbers by two and a half times, making it easier to read. A parachrom hairspring increases the shock resistance of the watch by ten times.

History
In 1953, an era when scuba diving was all the rage, the Rolex Submariner was introduced at the Basel Fair. A popular choice as a commercial diver's watch, it was the first timepiece to be resistant to water at a depth of 100 meters. One of the most iconic collections from Rolex, the Submariner has over the years incorporated various technical modifications while staying true to the quintessential design it came to be known for.


Features
A Submariner flaunts a 40-mm steel case with a screw-down case back. Fitted with a screw-down winding crown, the timepiece is equipped with the Triplock triple waterproofness system that assures water-resistance to a depth of 300 metres. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass is also provided with a Cyclops lens over the date indicator located at the 3 o'clock position in the dial in the Submariner Date models. The three-link steel bracelet ends into a safety clasp that can also be extended. In the 2008 and later models, the unidirectional bezel boasts of gold or platinum-coated numerals. The dial sports seconds, minutes, hour hands and markers those which are luminescent; aiding in easy readability.


Associations
A number of Bond movies have had James Bond sport a Submariner on his wrist. In 1960, The renowned diving company COMEX of France conferred the Submariner as their gadget of choice for saturation divers.  The Submariner has also been consistently popular with military divers since it has proved its finesse in the most extreme of water conditions through the years.
