Rolex’s Unrivaled Submariner Dive Watch Gets Updated For 2020

Sep 2, 2020

Category: Gear

First released in 1953, the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner (or just “Submariner” as its more commonly referred to) is not only one of the most iconic watches — it’s one of the most legendary industrial designs ever penned, rivaled only by the likes of the Porsche 911 and Herman Miller’s Eames Lounge. The first dive-watch capable of withstanding depths of 100m, the Submariner has slowly evolved over the years, with the elite Swiss outfit routinely updating the model, culminating in the latest iteration of the seafaring horological offering with the 2020 Rolex Submariner Dive Watch.

Paired with a unidirectional Cerachrom bezel and a tweaked Glidelock-equipped oyster bracelet, the Submariner’s case is now slightly bigger at 41mm and the dial has also received minor changes, with a revised text layout. The 2020 Submariner is now powered by Rolex’s own 3235 movement, a self-winding mechanical motor that benefits from more than a dozen patented features that are unique to the Swiss firm. Available now starting from $9,150, the 2020 Rolex Submariner Dive Watch is offered in a trio of Oystersteel versions, two yellow gold variants, a pair of Oystersteel and yellow gold styles, and a top-shelf white gold version with a $39,650 MSRP — a $2,700 premium over the yellow gold references.

Purchase: $9,150+
