Our Opinion

Offered here is a superb example of the Rolex BI-Metal Submariner Reference 16613 - Manufactured circa 1990.

The Reference 16613 was launched in 1988 as a successor of the 16803. The watch was part of the Rolex catalogue for about 20 years, available in two colours configuration for the dial and the bezel: black or blue, like the present example.

Many collectors prefer the 16613 to the newer 116613 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 116613.

This example has the correct Blue dial for its L966---- serial number range. The 16613 Bi-Metal Submariner is a truly impressive Neo Vintage iconic piece.

The overall condition of this 16613 Submariner is very good. 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 yellow gold bezel and blue insert have no major dings or scratches and compliment the overall appearance of this Bi-Metal Submariner. The blue gloss dial is in beautiful condition along with the yellow gold surrounds and Tritium hour plot markers and hands that are all matching in colour. The sapphire glass is the correct flat type inclusive of the Cyclops date window for this model, it is also free of any detrimental scratches or marks.

The watch comes on the correct type of Rolex BI-Metal Oyster bracelet and end links. The bracelet is showing light wear and minor stretch.

This stunning Submariner also comes with its original Rolex box.
