Rolex Submariner Date Ref. 16610


Pre-Owned Rolex 40mm Submariner Date, Black Dial, Oyster Bracelet, Ref. 16610

The Rolex Submariner was first introduced in 1953 and quickly became a highly coveted watch among divers and watch enthusiasts alike. Over the years, it has evolved into one of the most iconic and recognizable timepieces in the world. Its durability, accuracy, and timeless design have made it a favorite among adventurers, celebrities, and collectors. The Submariner has also played a significant role in popular culture, appearing in numerous movies and television shows.

The Submariner reference 16610 arrived in 1988 and is the fourth iteration of Rolex’s stainless steel date-displaying dive watch. The second generation introduced Sapphire crystals and 300-meter depth ratings, while the short-lived third version of the Submariner Date (the reference 168000) was virtually identical to its predecessor (the reference 16800) except for the type of steel. The Rolex Submariner Date reference 16610 looked virtually identical to the preceding model, but now featured a new Rolex movement (the Caliber 3135) that promised superior performance and stability. Benefitting from all of the various updates and innovations that had been introduced on the second and third iterations of the stainless steel Submariner Date, the reference 16610 would go on to define Rolex’s iconic dive watch collection, remaining in production for more than twenty years. The Rolex Submariner Date 16610 with aluminum bezel and drilled lugs is a modern watch that still has vintage attributes, which makes it attractive to many Submariner fans. Securing the timepiece is the robust Oyster bracelet, complemented by a folding fliplock clasp for a secure and comfortable fit. This watch comes complete with box and papers. The Rolex Submariner Date 16610 is the perfect companion for those seeking timeless style and unwavering performance.

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.
