In the watch world the Rolex Submariner is an absolute classic that is unmistakable with its one-way rotating bezel. Many other watchmakers have since taken inspiration from this model and it’s easy to see why. It was initially engineered as a precision tool watch to withstand demanding conditions and pressure for deep sea divers going to great depths. The likes of Jacques Cousteau the French explorer, Sean Connery in James Bond or Steve McQueen have been wearing this iconic watch that watch enthusiasts around the world have to own. It has the benefit of being extremely wearable as it is versatile, a watch you can wear for sports activities, partnering a more formal outfit or just for the everyday rebel dandy. The question today, is whether you prefer the slighter thinner vintage version or the thicker updated one with the Cerachrom bezel?
