Watchmakers can not only MAKE amazing watches. They can take them apart with skill to show you just what’s inside.
In this video by Watchfinder & Co., Head Watchmaker Tony Williams dissects a Rolex Submariner to reveal the intricate nature of a water-proof luxury watch. The detail that goes into making a chronometer is unfathomable; hundreds of teeny tiny components compiled meticulously to make the watch function accurately. No wonder they are of such high value!
Back in their day, they were somewhat affordable, as the video description explains: “First revealed to the public in 1953, the Rolex Submariner was a diving watch for everyone. Appealing to both professional and hobby divers, the Submariner set the standard for the category, its affordability and practicality unmatched. Rolex also developed non-chronometer versions of the Submariner that were even more affordable, costing roughly two weeks’ pay at the time.”
