In 1953, Rolex released the Submariner, the world's first diving watch designed specifically to withstand the pressures of deep sea diving. The Submariner's popularity soared in the middle of the 20th century as more people took up diving thanks to its remarkable waterproof casing, timing bezel, bright dial, and strong steel construction.
It is now common knowledge that the Rolex Submariner is not only the best diving watch ever made, but also one of the most renowned high-end timepieces ever produced. Divers' watches come in a wide range of materials, colors, and time periods, and are considered by many to be the most important watch one can possess.
A Rolex Submariner, how much is it?
In 2021, Rolex's catalog has eight different Sub models, with prices ranging from $8,950 to $40,650. Due to the tremendous demand for these well-known diving watches, however, the costs on the secondary market are much lower than the MSRP (MSRP.) It is common practice to pay far more than the original purchase price for a pre-owned Rolex watch nowadays. The value of stainless steel alternatives has increased due to their widespread use. There has been a significant increase in the value of the most recent limited editions, with the reference 126610LV "Kermit" fetching more than double its original retail price.
