Story and Details

Perhaps the most-quintessential Submariner ad ever created. It beautifully conveys the origin and essence of the Submariner by showing an underwater scene with a diver. It's also an example of the most-recognizable Rolex marketing, the "If you were..." campaign, having a perfect layout that's arguably as well-known as the Submariner's iconic design.
