Catalogue Note

Rolex launched the reference 16710 in 1989, superseding the 16760 with a slimmer case profile. The reference received various upgrades during its almost twenty-year run, including a new calibre as well as the transition from Tritium to Luminova and subsequently to SuperLuminova.
The present example was manufactured in 1997 and remains in excellent condition, retaining the original factory finish. It is fitted with the correct last generation of tritium dials, before Rolex switched to Luminova a few months later.
