The right watch is more than functional – it’s also a fashion statement. The most popular Rolex watches have a few things in common. They’re invariably sleek and stylish and they are built to last. Here, we’ll dive deep with a discussion of the most popular Rolex Submariner, we’ll have a speedy talk on the subject of the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona, and we’ll cover several other best-selling Rolex models as well.
Probably the single most popular Rolex model of all time, the Rolex Submariner was designed with scuba diving enthusiasts in mind. The model has transcended its original purpose though, reaching sports heroes, hip-hop musicians, Hollywood celebrities, and many others.
The earliest Submariners were waterproof to depths of 330 feet, and they offered the advantage of allowing divers to track their underwater time. Today’s Submariners retain watertight integrity to a depth of 1,000 feet, which is far deeper than most sport divers venture. Popular models include the Submariner No Date, the Submariner Ceramic, and the Submariner Green.
