Watch Of The Week

This week's watch of the week from Keanes Jewellers is perhaps the most recognisable watch on the face of the planet – the Rolex Submariner Date. An iconic and timeless design, from the biggest luxury watch brand in the world, the two-tone Submariner with a blue dial offers both the toughness of the 904L stainless steel that Rolex uses and the prestige of a gold watch simultaneously packaged into just a single watch. Its blue-faced sunburst dial (a textured effect involving brushing the face in a radial pattern – as opposed to linear) contributes to the sophisticated feel of the watch and gives off some funky patterns under different lighting environments.

The Submariner Date is such a classic design that's been around for a while and is not going to disappear anytime soon. If you're thinking about splashing out on a luxury watch and are contemplating the Sub, then just pull the trigger, you can't go wrong. Whilst not the rarest or most expensive Rolex watch available; the Submariner is such an important horological piece that any serious collection should have one. You'll find this iconic timepiece in Keanes for €12600.
