The Everest Journal

by Theresa DiMartini July 19, 2021 8 min read

The Rolex Submariner is an instant classic and itsaesthetic is nearly instantly recognizable to all generations. While it may technically be a dive watch, it is incredibly versatile and looks great on just about everyone. Even with updates or different dial colors, its iconic status remains with its overall design, and that is why the Rolex Submariner will forever be so popular. It’s hard not to like the Rolex submariner. The sub is like New York cheese pizza, sunsets on the beach, 5 week old puppies, Ted Lasso: Just absolutely impossible not to love.

Overall it’s just an iconic, versatile and classic watch, and we are happy to say that thousands upon thousands of Rolex Submariner wearers enjoy their Subs even more after they strap on an Everest Band. Let’s look at some images sent to us by real customers and read what they have to say.

This strap exceeded all expectations. Incredibly comfortable, light weight, high quality option that integrates with the OEM clasp and fits the contours of the case perfectly. Rolex won’t put the iconic Submariner on an Oysterflex and they don’t have to, Everest did it perfectly. - Stephen N.

Everest bands are a great company and really change the look of my submariner. Thank you for a great transaction! - Joe S.

Love this, wearing my Sub way more now - Adam B.

I could not be more thrilled with my new Everest Band for my Rolex Submariner. I’ve never been a huge fan on a 16610, but this rubber strap has given my sub new life. I haven’t taken it off in weeks! I’m going to get my sub serviced by RSC this year, and will install the oyster for that. When it gets back, I will remove it and I suspect the Everest will stay in until I need my next service. - Mark S

This band completely changes my watch. I have a ref. number 16610 Sub and rarely wore it. Now with the green Everest Band, it has become my everyday watch. It is very comfortable, supple, great looking, and makes the watch very casual. I actually get lots of compliments on the band, but rarely any on the watch… - Peter B.

It’s incredibly comfortable and supple the minute you receive it. It’s easy to install, great looking and just feels great on the wrist. - Mark S.

Easy to install, looks great, feels comfortable! - Monica M.

Super comfortable (flexible rubber and arched shape around my wrist).. super casual... high quality (looks like it may last for many years).. Xo -Michael

Blue Color matches up very nice on my 16613 submariner. strap quality appears to to be solid and can take a beating great for everyday activity very comfortable. - Omar A.

About 50 years ago I purchased a Rolex Submariner watch. Not only was it a timepiece it was a showpiece. I’ve worn this watch everyday and over all those years it has sustained much abuse. In the last few months the stainless steel watchband started to breakdown and was no longer sustainable. I needed a replacement which would be strong, reliable and good looking. I found that in the Everest watchband. Now, once again I have after 50 years I have a showpiece once again. - Larry G.

Watch Accessories for Rolex Submariner Wearers

Just as much as Rolex Submariner wearers love our straps, they also love our extremely high quality watch rolls to protect and display their watches. The flat bottom intentionally keeps the roll from moving around on your dresser and the sliding rail system with compressible pillows makes it easy to store watches of any wrist size either on a strap or on bracelet. The full grain Italian nappa leather is gorgeous and a perfect complement to your watch collection. The Vegan Cork is an eco-friendly, stylish and sustainable alternative to leather.

 A luxury item that does the job.Arrived beautifully wrapped and I wasn’t disappointed with the 3 watch roll. The blue leather looked great and is made by craftsmen or women. The interior and the watch holders are great, securing each watch individually preventing any scratching from its neighbour. Somebody has put a lot of thought into this design including the flat bottom of the watch roll which prevents it rolling around. The watches look beautifully presented when the roll is opened.

I am very pleased with my purchase. Thank you - Christopher J.

Beautiful Product that was thoughtfully executed. - Levi S.

I just recently purchased the Everest watch roll that holds three watches. I am pleased with the sleek design. I have two watches that are a 44m and 45m, both fit great. If you are in the market for a watch roll and not sure what one to buy, get the Everest you won’t be disappointed. - Kent R.

Love it. I was a little worried about aligning and snapping the three snaps, but so far it works great and no issues at all. Cushions are decent, but what’s great is how they slide into the base, keeping the watch “floating” instead of pushed against the case. I will be getting a second one soon. - John M.

Purchased 1 and liked it so much I ordered 4 additional cases. Very nicely made. I especially like the slide in watch roll which is more secure and convenient than the snap in versions. - Noah W.

Beautiful high-quality watch roll with soft rich leather. The interior also looks and feels luxurious. Each Watch pillow can be slid out and completely removed instead of removing the entire interior roll like some brands (Wolf). I have very small wrists and have struggled with the diameter of the interior roll being too large for my watches. No such problem with this watch roll. This is an expensive watch roll but worth every penny. The materials and craftsmanship are exquisite. - Jason J.

I've bought a couple bands and other small accessories from Everest. All have been very high quality, reliable products. The watch roll is no different and is very nice!.. the leather outside looks and feels great and the overall construction is solid. It works perfectly for traveling with a few of your babies and knowing they're protected. A bit expensive and was kind of a "treat" to myself, but overall I'm quite pleased. Highly recommended. - Brian R.
