This is a superb pre-owned Rolex Submariner Date 116610 with the wider case design, a ceramic bezel and the ‘GlideLock’ Oyster bracelet.
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 with three major visual differences to the classic one – A new case design, a ceramic bezel and a new ‘GlideLock’ Oyster bracelet.
You can see how 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 and actually appear less tall than the classic one – it never feels clunky or heavy though.
On this model the aluminum bezel insert has been replaced with a ceramic Rolex compound called Cerachrom, which won’t scratch, fade or corrode and which has the numbers etched onto it in platinum – it’s 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The 116610 was superseded in 2020 by the 41mm 126610 and that has made 116610s even more desirable – this is one of the earlier 116610’s made.
It has been worn carefully, and is in lovely condition.
It is a genuine Full Set including everything that came with it from the AD including the papers and books and even the bezel protector.
Just tested here and running perfectly as you would expect, and comes with a 12 month warranty.
