The First Rolex Submariner Watch

In 1953, Rolex Replica Watches produced the first Submariner with this model reference. 6204 watch. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner will not only become one of the most representative watches in the world, but will also be one of the most imitated, anticipated and researched watches. The Rolex Submariner is the first diving watch from Rolex and follows the tradition of Rolex’s first waterproof watch, Oyster, in 1926.

Rolex really began to make diving watches with Panerai. Indeed, the early Panerai watches included the Rolex Replica movement. In the 1930s, Swiss and Italian companies collaborated to develop a military diving watch based on the Panerai, asking Rolex to help it produce timepieces for the Italian Navy. Rolex learned from this experience, but it was not until the 1950s that Rolex released its own diving watch. The original Rolex submersible began a long period of experimentation and improvement. Original reference. 6204 was produced for a year or less, and even in the same year, several other versions of Rolex submarines are being produced or planned. In fact, for most of its early days, Rolex submarines experienced a series of intense evolutionary steps, as well as design experiments. This brings an extremely rich field to collectors because there are many versions in the early days of model history.

In addition to the very different dial text compared to most other Rolex Submariner models, the most striking difference is the lack of the “Mercedes Benz Star” hour hand. A key element of the Rolex submariner is the unique hour hand, which is designed to be different from the minute hand for easy underwater reading. Swiss Rolex Watches did not start doing this until later. The hour mark on the original Rolex submariner still exists today, but Rolex quickly tried various versions after the referee. 6204 was released. Another interesting design feature is the golden hand and hour markers, which persisted in various Rolex submersible models in the 1950s.
