Rolex Black Dial Submariner 16610

$9,975

Pre-Owned 40mm stainless steel Rolex Submariner black bezel and dial with date on stainless steel bracelet, Ref. 16610
Since its debut in 1953, when the Submariner was the first divers watch waterproof to a depth of 100 meters and included a rotatable bezel to allow divers to track their immersion time, the Submariner has been recognized as a superb diving watch. With its classic 40mm size and aluminum bezel, the reference 16610 is beloved by Submariner fans as a link between the earliest Submariners and the modern updated models. This 16610 includes the 904L stainless steel, which although more difficult to form into a watch makes it a preferred material for immersion in the ocean. The caliber 3135 is so robust that it has been used for over thirty years. The 16610 may not be the earliest or the latest Submariner, but many fans consider it among the best.

Description

Rolex is recognized throughout the world not only as a brand associated with luxury, but as a watch that is both luxurious and precise.  For Rolex, this hard-won and well-deserved recognition was never in doubt.  The founder, Hans Wilsdorf named the company Rolex so as to be pronounceable in any language as he anticipated the acclaim his company would receive due to relentless pursuit of precision and accuracy in a wristwatch.  Soon after its founding, Rolex produced the first wristwatch to receive the Swiss Certificate of Chronometric Precision, which was followed rapidly by receipt of a certificate of precision from the Kew Observatory in Great Britain.  From those roots Rolex built a legacy of innovation.  The “Oyster” watch was the first waterproof and dustproof wristwatch in 1926, followed by the first self-winding “Perpetual” rotor.  Building once again on innovation, the “Datejust” became the first self-winding wrist chronometer to include a date in a window on the dial.  Adventurous women and men who strive to achieve what was never before been achieved have chosen Rolex for their expedition, which both perpetuates the brand’s claim to precision and dependability as well as attests to its veracity.  Hans Wilsdorf may have anticipated the acclaim Rolex would someday achieve, but even he might have been impressed its success.
