The Rolex Submariner 16610 is a watch worth investing in if you are looking to add a jaw-dropping vintage watch to your collection. The Submariner line of men’s watches originated in the early 1950s when avid scuba diver and Rolex board member, Rene-Paul Jeanneret presented his coworkers the idea of developing and manufacturing an elegant timepiece that would also be waterproof and extremely durable. His coworkers agreed this would be the perfect addition to the Rolex line, and the Submariner line came to fruition.
The Submariner 16610 was produced from the years 1988-2010 and is a predecessor to the 116610 model. The Submariner 16610 is noted for incorporating some of the major changes to earlier versions from this line. These include changing to a ceramic bezel and a bigger crown guard and larger lugs. This durable luxury diver’s watch showcases a more graceful and understated design with a smaller crow and slimmer lugs, along with smaller index markers and hands. These modifications come together flawlessly on the classically comfortable and attractive Rolex 3-link Oyster bracelet.
The Sub 16610 sits perfectly at the juncture of old and new, blending the more vintage models from this line with a touch of modern functionality. This Submariner model watch is guaranteed to keep time with accuracy due to the tested and verified Cal. 3135 movement and impressive power reserve. The second-hand sweeps along effortlessly due to the self-winding Perpetual motion that ticks along at 28,800 beats per hour and is joined by the quick-set date window pioneered by Rolex. With the timeless design of this wristwatch, you will never have to worry about being late for your next important endeavor.
Join the ranks of confident and influential men who assert their commitment to style and quality when you invest in the flawless form and function found in the Submariner 16610. This heirloom-quality sport/dive watch will be a daily accessory that you can then pass down for generations.
