The Rolex Submariner, reference 16610 we are offering here is an M serial watch and was amongst one of the last series produced before it was fully replaced by the all new ‘ceramic’ Submariner in 2010. Because of that, this 16610 is probably the best watch to buy within it’s reference bloodline, with literally all of the best R&D efforts concerning the 16610 Submariner, processed into the watch.

This Subs deep black glossy dial truly looks amazing, and for some reason also looks more black then any other Submariner dial out there. The white gold indices filled with SuperLuminova set off nicely against that black background and still shine as bright as the day the watch left the factory – All that beauty is surrounded by a Rolex engraved Rehaut which made it’s way to the Submariner watches during the production of the M serials, another feature that sets this Submariner apart from about 95% of the other 16610’s out there. The watch is powered by Rolex’s caliber 3135 and is of course a certified Swiss chronometer, a designation reserved for high-precision watches that have successfully passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) tests. It is fitted with a Parachrom hairspring, offering greater resistance to shocks and to temperature variations. This caliber 3135 is one of the most reliable movements ever created by Rolex.

I think it’s pretty safe to say that this Submariner is a legendary divewatch, a watch that has become synonymous with the brand Rolex – She remains in excellent and almost near new conditions, with a solid case and a stretch free Oyster bracelet – both also still remain in unpolished conditions. The watch it’s movement has been fully serviced and the watch has been waterproof tested and will be available with a 12 month warranty.
