$13,695

Pre-Owned Rolex 40mm Submariner Date, Black Dial, Oyster Bracelet, Ref. 116610

Launched in 1953, the Submariner was the first divers’ watch waterproof to a depth of 100 meters. This generation of Submariner is now water-resistant to 300 meters and maintains the historic links between Rolex and the world of diving in a redesigned luxurious case with a thicker profile, fatter lugs and stouter crown guard that is fitted on a remodeled bracelet. This Submariner in Oystersteel has a black dial and rotatable bezel with matching Cerachrom insert. The anti-reflective coating applied to the back of the sapphire crystal on the new generation Submariner makes it highly legible. Powered by the in-house caliber 3135, the watch’s precision has been tested by COSC. The watch includes the original box and papers, and is in excellent overall condition.

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 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 make history 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 with its success.
