    Rolex

    Swiss • 1905

    Founded in 1905 England by Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis as Wilsdorf & Davis, it soon became known as the Rolex Watch Company in 1915, moving its headquarters to Geneva in 1919. Like no other company, the success of the wristwatch can be attributed to many of Rolex's innovations that made them one of the most respected and well-known of all luxury brands. These innovations include their famous "Oyster" case — the world's first water resistant and dustproof watch case, invented in 1926 — and their "Perpetual" — the first reliable self-winding movement for wristwatches launched in 1933. They would form the foundation for Rolex's Datejust and Day-Date, respectively introduced in 1945 and 1956, but also importantly for their sports watches, such as the Explorer, Submariner and GMT-Master launched in the mid-1950s.

    One of its most famous models is the Cosmograph Daytona. Launched in 1963, these chronographs are without any doubt amongst the most iconic and coveted of all collectible wristwatches. Other key collectible models include their most complicated vintage watches, including references 8171 and 6062 with triple calendar and moon phase, "Jean Claude Killy" triple date chronograph models and the Submariner, including early "big-crown" models and military-issued variants.

Ref. 126618LB
The Rolex Submariner Date 126618LB is a striking take on one of the world’s most iconic watches. The present model is encased in vibrant 18k yellow gold, which contrasts beautifully with the deep nautical hues of both the blue ceramic bezel, and the royal blue dial. Not only is this Submariner visually striking, but this latest generation also boasts a larger 41mm case and the upgraded in-house calibre 3235, with automatic movement and a 70-hour power reserve. This Submariner 126618LB stays true to its origins as a diver’s watch, whilst also benefitting from the aesthetic and technological innovations of today. This example was only worn sparingly, and is offered complete with the original Rolex box, 5-year warranty card, booklets, hang tag and spare link.
