History of the Rolex Submariner

The world’s first waterproof wristwatch was the Oyster, which came out in 1926 and remained the standard until the Rolex Submariner watch came out. People could find the Rolex Submariner for sale starting in 1953, and it provided protection against water all the way down to 100 meters. The core of the Submariner has remained the same as new models came out over the years. This includes the Rolex Submariner 16610 and the Rolex Submariner 116610. Similarly, customers can buy the watch in many different styles and colors. A Rolex Submariner Blue, Gold, and much more are all available to purchase for somebody who has the money or the will to find a good pre owned Rolex Submariner.


Where to Buy a Rolex Submariner

Whether you want a Rolex Submariner Blue, black, or another color, the price usually comes out to more than $10,000. Even for a watch of the quality of a Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner, that is more than most people are able to spend. The price can be even higher if you go for a popular style such as Rolex Submariner Gold. Luckily, you don’t necessarily have to buy your Rolex Submariner brand new. If you can find a reliable used dealer, you can get a steep discount that brings the price into a range that you can afford. You might have to make a compromise here and there, such as settling for a Rolex Submariner Black when you want a Rolex Submariner Green, but such compromises are well worth it when you can get great quality.


What to Look for in a Used Dealer

When you go looking for a used Rolex Submariner Red or other color, you should make sure that your dealer knows everything about the product. That includes knowing small details like the Rolex Submariner date of manufacture, reference number, type and number of the mechanism as well as broader information about the product. A dealer who doesn’t know about the product probably can’t guarantee you high quality. A Rolex Submariner is stainless steel, but it can still take damage, so somebody who doesn’t know the product might not be able to provide you a watch that will last. You should also study the market value before you go shopping. For example, if you know that a new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date costs $20,000, you should be suspicious of a dealer who is asking for close to full price for the watch, unless it is in the pristine condition and never been worn.

A Rolex Oyster Perpetual Date Submariner is expensive, but well worth the cost if you can find a good deal. If you identify a reliable used dealer, you can get this great watch for a fraction of its true value.
