We know that with regard to the Rolex Submariner, there are several features that are very important, such as waterproof to 300 meters, watch diameter 40 mm, 904L stainless steel, Benz pointer, Hulk and so on. Today we will take a brief look at their evolution.
In 1953, Rolex Submariner was launched for the first time. Although it was not the world's first diving watch, it was the world's first watch with a water resistance of 100 meters. For this, Rolex's Oyster structure is indispensable. ps, as mentioned above, the world's first diving watch is Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, which is water-resistant to fifty fathoms, which is approximately 91 meters.
In 1954, the waterproof depth was upgraded, and the waterproof depth of Rolex Submariner reached 200 meters.

In 1959, the diameter of the watch became larger, and the diameter of the Rolex Submariner (ref. 5512) reached 40 mm, which had been 36 mm before. At the same time, shoulder guards are added on both sides of the crown. The hour hand of the dial has changed from a sword-shaped hand to a Mercedes-Benz hand, and the small dot of the second hand has also moved back. These are the important features that make Rolex water ghosts highly recognizable today.
In 1969, Rolex Submariner (ref. 1680) has undergone some changes. For example, the date display function and the magnifying glass function on the date display have been added. At the same time, the word Submariner at 6 o'clock turned red, because the watch was scarce and became a favorite for collection.
In 1979, the waterproof depth of the Rolex Submariner (ref. 16800) was upgraded to 300 meters, which is still the case today.

In 1981, the Rolex Submariner (ref. 16800) began to adopt the "one-way rotating bezel." In 1985, Rolex Submariner (ref. 168000) began to use 904L stainless steel. Previously, 316L stainless steel was mainly used, but its corrosion resistance was not better than 904L. At the same time, the production cost of 904L stainless steel is also much higher.
In 2003, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Rolex Submariner, the green bezel Submariner (ref.16610LV) was launched for the first time. Because of its limited release, it once triggered "snap buying" in Hong Kong. To a certain extent, the Hong Kong market has "fueled the flames" of the current Rolex Hulk market.

In 2010, Rolex Submariner switched to a ceramic bezel. At the same time, production of the old green Submariner (ref.16610LV) was discontinued, and the new green Submariner (ref.116610LV) was launched. The green Submariner is still the hottest watch today.
Of course, it will definitely change in the future, but some things have been finalized and it is difficult to change again, such as some of the highly recognizable brand genes mentioned above.
