Rolex rubber strap Datejust was conceived in 1945, presenting to us the primary self-twisting wristwatch to show the date in a window on the dial. Rolex turned into the first watch to break the sound wall on the wrist of pilot Chuck Yeager in 1947. Propelled in 1953, the Submariner was the first jumpers' watch waterproof to a profundity of 100 meters. That equivalent year, Rolex arrived at the summit of Mt. Everest with the endeavor that included Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay.
