Stockholm, 13 October – Nymans Ur 1851, Krons and Rolex invite you to a unique exhibition exploring the universe of the Oyster Perpetual Submariner, the first divers’ watch waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet) and the archetype of its kind. Retracing the remarkable history of this timepiece, from its birth in 1953 – during the early days of scuba diving – to the present day, the Submariner exhibition will be held for the first time in Sweden and exclusively at the WATCHOUT EVENT, on Friday 13 October, 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. at the Grand Hôtel Stockholm – Vinterträdgården. Entry to the event is free, and no pre-registration is required, but it is mandatory to bring a valid identity card.
Through panels and interactive displays presented in a structure inspired by the links of a Rolex Oyster bracelet, the Submariner exhibition tells the story of how the celebrated divers’ watch developed over the years. It explains the many innovations that have gone into making a timepiece that is perfectly waterproof, resistant to shocks, and equipped with functions essential for underwater exploration.
Visitors will also discover how, over time, the Submariner became an emblematic watch on land as well as at sea.
