The Rolex Submariner – what can we say about the watch we haven’t talked about yet? From delving into the history of the model through our reference points, to taking a week-long “week on the wrist” in New York City with the latest Rolex Submariner, we’ve said a lot.
The Rolex Submariner Reference 16610 is a bridge between two eras at Rolex. Launched in 1987, it’s part retro, part modern. As one of Crown’s earliest “five-digit” reference numbers—that is, a model with a five-digit reference number instead of the four it used throughout the year—this Submariner is the brand’s first foray into classic diving watch and turn it into a luxury item. luxury watches for sale
Man, did it work? The Cyclops date at 3 o’clock, the Mercedes hands, the unidirectional diving bezel – all the instantly recognisable signs that make the Submariner a Submariner are here. While the case design has been updated, it’s still a classic wearable size, 40mm in diameter and 13mm thick. Rolex increased the water resistance from 200 meters to 300 meters and added a sapphire crystal for a more modern and durable diver’s watch. It also makes the Submariner more luxurious.
All in all, the 16610 model is perfect for those who want a little bit of everything: a little retro, a little modern – but still a Submariner.
