Although there are quite a lot of Rolex Submariners in existence, certain vintage references have caught the attention of enthusiasts whenever they surface.

Originally introduced in 1950, the caliber 1030 is often credited as being Rolex’s first bi-directional, automatic winding movement.

As a SCUBA diver for the United States Navy, the Rolex Submariner was an obvious choice for Mike; and when he returned home, he took his faithful dive watch with him. Once back at his stateside home in the South, Mike resumed regular life, hunting, fishing, and playing poker every Tuesday evening with his best friend Peter.
