Launched in 1961, this watch
was the first to be taken 11000 feet under the sea with the expedition to the depths of the Mariana trench in the Pacific Ocean. Precise as its reputation suggested, it caught the imagination of Sean Connery who requested his producer to let his character wear this watch
in the movie. Thus, the submariner
became the first watch
to be sported on the wrist of the first James Bond in the movie Dr No. Like the movie the watch
became a huge hit and appeared with James Bond for the next eleven editions of the series.
