If you’ve ever wondered why a Rolex was so expensive you may want to watch this demonstration of a Rolex Submariner being disassembled, showing the intricacies involved in the time piece in exquisite detail.  The demonstration is of course performed by a professional watchmaker, who meticulously picks apart the watch with great skill.  Although back in the 50’s, they weren’t as expensive.

“First revealed to the public in 1953, the Rolex Submariner was a diving watch for everyone. Appealing to both professional and hobby divers, the Submariner set the standard for the category, its affordability and practicality unmatched. Rolex also developed non-chronometer versions of the Submariner that were even more affordable, costing roughly two weeks’ pay at the time.”
