Condition Report:

Overall, this Rolex Submariner 16610 is in excellent neo-vintage condition. The watch comes with all original parts, which include the dial, bezel, bracelet, hands, and hour markers, which still have tritium. There are only minor signs of wear on the bezel. The watch has had a light polish during its service but remains very sharp and thick. The sapphire crystal is clean and only has some wear around the edges. The 93150 bracelet is accompanied with full 12 links and diver's extension, it only has minor stretch given its age. 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.

Rolex Submariner History:
The Rolex Submariner is 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.
