The Stainless Steel Submariner is an awesome way to break into the Mechanical Watch scene. A classic of classics. Functionality and style for an everyday watch. You can easily transition from the office to dinner plans without missing a fashion minute.
The Rolex Stainless Steel Submariner is a Rolex tradition. It first appeared back in 1953 when Rolex decided it was time to make their very own “dive” watch that stayed true to their water resistance roots with an oyster back.
The watch has characteristics that other watch manufacturers still try and emulate today. There are two variations of the Rolex Submariner Stainless Steel. One has a “date” function while the other is a “non-date” that doesn’t feature any date at all.

The watch also comes in a number of colored dials and bezels that allow the individual to express their very own style. The black on black is the “classic”, however; the green on green or the “Hulk” has been making it’s presence known among watch enthusiasts.
The functionality includes a uni direction bezel that easily allow you to keep track of dive time. The date function will keep you current on the number day of the week, and the luminescent hour markers will keep the face bright enough to see in darker situations.
The price range of the Rolex Stainless Steel Submariner is right on target for that entry level watch. Starting at around $5,500 dollars for a used piece, running up to around $9,000 new, and you are sure to get a collectors piece that is easily passed down to your future generations.
The Stainless Steel Submariner is also a bit more rugged then the gold and two tone counter parts. Working a physical job where the chances of banging your watch up isn’t a problem. The stainless steel metal does a great job of hiding most surface scratches easily.
