Description

The Rolex Submariner was introduced in 1954 as a robust, highly water-resistant luxury diver’s wristwatch. Its timeless design barely evolved over the course of 60 years, contributing to the legendary status of this model. The reference 16610 was produced for more than 20 years between 1987 and 2010 and introduced major technical innovations. It replaced the outgoing Submariner reference 16800 and is considered by many collectors as the last “pre-modern” iteration, before Rolex introduced the maxi cases and the ceramic bezel insert with ref. 116610.
