In 1953, Rolex introduced the very first Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner timepiece, marking the start of a true legacy. This first timepiece was unlike any that had ever been produced before. It was incredibly water-resistant, so it could be worn during deep dives. The watch also featured superior corrosion resistance, so it would not rust no matter how often it was exposed to moisture. By the late 1960s, the French diving company COMEX had chosen the Rolex Submariner to be the official watch of their divers, and the timepiece had become a true status symbol all over the world.
Today, the Rolex Submariner is truly legendary. The watch is so popular that it is one of the most commonly counterfeited timepieces, but no one except the watchmakers at Rolex can produce a timepiece as sophisticated, stylish and functional as the true Rolex Submariner. Although Rolex has modified the design over the years, the modern Rolex Submariner watches have many of the same features as the original watch, including a unidirectional rotating bezel and a precision machined oyster case.
If you own a Rolex Submariner watch and want to update your timepiece with a replacement band, choosing a Perlon strap is a wise decision. Like the Submariner, Perlon straps are manufactured for maximum durability and to stand up to wear and tear below the sea or on the surface. The Perlon strap collection at WatchBandit includes a diverse range of looks, so you’re sure to find the ideal way to complete your Rolex Submariner timepiece in style.
