Rolex 116610 Submariner
While we’re better known for supplying superb mid vintage Sports Rolex models, from time to time we come across a later model that catches our eye and what we have here is a superb Rolex 116610 Submariner.
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 the new 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 the new 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.
This particular Rolex 116610 is in unworn condition and is a genuine Full Set – less than a month old and with five years of Rolex warranty left, the stickers have been removed but it has never been worn.
