For the watch connoisseur in your life, there’s one watch to rule them all. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner is the ultimate watch. Timeless. Classic. Really, really expensive. But the understated design and precision craftsmanship are worth every dollar. The watch was introduced in 1953 as a true diver’s watch, and was the first watch to be water-resistant up to 100 meters, making it a benchmark in innovation. If the man of your life can’t swim or gets seasick easily, that’s OK too – the legacy behind the watch will always give him something to talk about and might even inspire him to get into the water.
The watch can come with or without the date window and the bracelet is composed of flat, three-piece links that come in 4 different materials: steel, steel with yellow gold. yellow gold or white gold. You can bling up the face with diamonds in the dial or keep it understated. In addition, the Submariner watch face comes in classic black, blue and deep green.
The perpetual, mechanical, self-winding movement guarantees his watch will always be set to the right time. While we can’t guarantee that he’ll always be on time, at least he will be very fashionable should he arrive late.
Price: From about USD $8,000 at Rolex.
