Rolex Submariner Ref. 16610 Date 1996

Regular price
Unit price


This Rolex Submariner 16610 is in great neo-vintage condition. The watch comes with all original parts which includes the dial, bezel, bracelet, hands, and hour markers - which still have tritium. The overall condition is good with the only signs of wear on the bezel; there is also a minor ding on the bracelet closure clasp. There also appear to be minor signs of polishing, but the case remains very sharp and thick. The 93150 V9 bracelet has very little stretch given its age and it comes with a total of 11 links and diver's extension, fitting wrists up to 7 1/4 inches. The crown features Rolex's "triplock" system allowing the watch to be fully sealed for water wear. The caseback, movement, and crown are all signed by Rolex. The T serial dates this watch to 1996. Recently serviced this year, it's ready to wear on the wrist running at +2 seconds per day.

Rolex Submariner History:
The Rolex Submariner - a true classic. When introduced in 1953 the model helped meet the demand that divers were looking for as the sport grew during the era. The Submariner quickly became a fashion accessory rather than a tool watch due to its uncomplicated design and tasteful charm. Most notably seen on the wrist of James Bond in Sean Connery's day, the Submariner has captured the hearts and donned the wrists of many watch aficionados.
