Rolex Submariner 16610 - new addition

Recommended Posts

Del

I just joined the Sub Club! :lol: 

Bought this Submariner a couple of days ago and it arrived today. It was new in 1991......... I must be crazy buying a 29 year old watch........right?! The year is significant for me so that was a big attraction, but the watch is in very good condition, has original tritium dial/hands/pip, chronometer certificate and box. All seems in order - phew! :) 

Thanks also to my friends who helped me over the line with this (you know who you are ;) ).

Some quick pics:-

It's a beauty. 29 years old? Looks brand new, must have had parts replaced at service or failing that a very careful owner. Enjoy :D

Looks like a real time capsule piece Del.

I much prefer the 5 digit references over the sixes.

Congratulations on a stellar addition to your well curated stable.

Well flippin' done mate. The best Submariner IMHO. It's the gen I would buy if I had the money. I look at them on eBay and that's about as far as I get. Happy for you  :)

It actually has the original tritium dial, hands and bezel (zero lume due to its age). It’s in fantastic condition but has been refurbished I’m sure. :)
