This is an unworn Rolex Submariner Date 116610 with the wider case design, a ceramic bezel and the ‘GlideLock’ Oyster bracelet. It has never been worn and is in perfect, fully stickered condition – it is a NOS watch.
In 2012, Rolex updated its classic Submariner model with the most dramatic change since the introduction of the 5512 / 5513 in the mid 1960’s. There are three major visual differences to the classic one. A new case design, a ceramic bezel and a new ‘GlideLock’ Oyster bracelet.
The lugs on this model protrude sideways past the bracelet links further than on previous models, making it wear a bit larger on the wrist. It actually appears less tall than the classic one. It never feels clunky or heavy though. A little less understated than the classic one and actually looks smarter, perhaps making this model a bit more multi purpose.
The 116610 was superseded in 2020 by the 41mm 126610 and that has made 116610s even more desirable. This is one of the earlier 116610’s made.
