  • Classic Submariner Ads

    [Credit: All pictures and text by Subfiend unless noted otherwise]

    Let's start this thread off with what is probably the very first ad for the "new" Submariner, from May 1954.

    The watch was so new the artist didn't know what it looked like. The watch pictured is actually
    the Deep Sea Special with a bezel drawn on to it. The ad appeared in National Geographic
    magazine, along with an article about the 1953 conquest of Mt. Everest and deep diving in the
    bathyscaphe Trieste to 10,350 ft.

    "Time for Sports," May 1955

    This ad features the Turn-O-Graph, Skindiver (err...., Submariner?), Sportsman (a/k/a OP) and
    Chronograph. The drawings are correct, but the names are a little off.

                          1990 TT Black Sub. George is the only guy I know who actually dives with his TT Sub, other than me.
