Offered here is a superb example of the Rolex Stainless-Steel Submariner Date Reference 16610 - Manufactured circa 2007.
The Rolex Submariner 16610 was released in 1988 and was powered by the brands longest serving movement, the automatic Rolex calibre 3135 with date located at the 3 o'clock position. The watch was originally fitted with black glossy dials with T25 tritium hour markers and hands. Tritium dials were eventually phased out in the late 90's with watches being fitted with "SWISS" only dials in 1999. "SWISS MADE" dials were fitted from 2000 onwards. These later dials featured Super-Luminova filled hour marker and hands. Early Rolex Submariner 16610's were fitted with the 93150-oyster bracelet with folding clasp. From 2000 the 93250-oyster bracelet was fitted to the Rolex Submariner 16610. The Rolex Submariner 16610 originally featured lug holes but there were deleted in 2003. Late examples of the Rolex Submariner 16610, from 2008, also feature the engraved inner rehaut displaying the serial number at the 6 o'clock position.
Many collectors prefer the 16610 to the newer 116610 in terms of appearance. The older watch is slimmer and more proportionate than the “super-size” newer watch and the sunburst colour dial is one of the most fascinating ever made by Rolex. Some also point out that the old watch’s clasp withstood wear far better than the single, polished piece of metal that is now being used as a clasp for the 116610.
The overall condition of this 16610 Submariner is excellent. The case has been lightly polished in the past, but still retains strong equal lugs and crown guards along with the brushed finish to the top edges and chamfers remaining very well defined, the stainless-steel bezel and black insert have no dings or scratches and compliment the overall appearance of this iconic Submariner. The black gloss dial is in beautiful condition along with the white gold surrounds and super-Luminova hour plot markers and hands that are all matching in colour. The sapphire glass is the flat profile type inclusive of the Cyclops date, it is also free of any detrimental scratches or marks.
The watch comes on the correct type of Rolex stainless-steel 93250 Oyster bracelet and solid end links. The bracelet is showing light wear and minor stretch.
This stunning Submariner also comes as a full set with its original Rolex box, manuals, hang tags, card holder and guarantee certificate dated Saturday 6th January 2007.
