The two most iconic diving watches of all time, the Rolex Submariner and the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, laid the foundational vocabulary for the modern diving watch. Both, which arrived circa 1953, featured rotating bezels to indicate elapsed time and provided superb legibility and water-resistance.

But while the Submariner is more associated with terra firma, the Fifty Fathoms has its feet deep in the cut and thrust of military diving, designed at the behest of the French Combat Navy School.
