The Deep Diver: The New Generation Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner
June 8th, 2021
The Rolex Submariner No Date is considered the prototypical dive watch. Last year, Rolex cropped up with a new generation of the Oyster Perpetual Submariner watches. The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner features slightly bigger case profiles and new movements. However, the watch yet retains its original aesthetics.
Rolex offered the Submariner Date models in exquisite colour combinations. On the other hand, the watchmaker kept the Submariner No-Date watches true to the original Submariner design. Continue reading below to explore the new Submariner generation.

The Updated Features & New Proportions
Rolex has released the new generation of Submariner watches with a slightly more prominent case diameter – 41mm. The watches feature slimmer lugs and crown guards, but the lug width has increased to 21mm.
Eventually, these minor updates have modified the watch’s proportions, including the case, dial, bezel, and bracelet. However, the changes are noticeable if you place the new Submariner beside its previous siblings (now discontinued).
- The new self-winding movement powering the new Submariner watches is the Calibre 3230.
- Like in other Rolex models, a delicately grooved case back covers the movement. It is hermetically screwed down using a unique key.
- The Calibre 3230, as well as, Calibre 3235 offers 70hours of power reserve. And both the movements are COSC certified.
Moreover, Rolex has equipped the new generation Submariner watches with the brand’s proprietary Chronergy escapement. It delivers optimal durability and resistance to magnetic fields. Furthermore, the movement also comes with an upgraded Rolex Blue Parachrom hairspring.
A Brief Overview of the Technical Features
The Submariner bezel rotates counterclockwise perfectly in half-minute increments. The bezel is edged with knurled grooves that offer a tight grip for dive gloves or wet hands. Furthermore, it is topped with a black ceramic rotatable ring featuring markers and numerals on the 60-minute track.
Now, with the robust Oyster case, the Triplock winding crown and a secured case back, the Submariner ensures to resist water pressure up to a depth of 300m.
- The Triplock winding crown comes with a screw-down design, preventive crown guards and triple seal.
- Other significant features include scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a cyclops lens on the 3 o’clock date aperture for increased readability.
- Rolex offered its new generation Submariner watches with the sportier Oyster bracelet.
The bracelet further features the patented Glidelock extension system and Oysterlock folding safety clasp. However, the Glidelock extension system will allow you to extend the bracelet up to 20mm, ensuring a comfortable fit on any wrist.
