Rolex Submariner 16610 - Swiss Only Dial

Excellent condition Rolex Submariner date, reference 16610. It was originally purchased from authorised Rolex dealers Ernest Jones/Leslie Davis in Stockport in 1998. It comes with genuine Rolex inner and outer box, thought the box set is not for a submariner, its for a Rolex Cellini, booklets and warranty/certification card. This model was discontinued in favour of the current model with ceramic bezel. The 16610 models are steadily increasing in price since they are now discontinued, and are set to become future classics. This one in particular is the Swiss only dial, which refers the the small print at the 6 position. It lacks the tritium symbols and in this Swiss only format was made during a transitional period switching over from tritium to luminova. The "SWISS" only dial was in production for a short period of time 1998 - 2000 (U serial to A serial), they were the first produced as a transitional when Rolex replaced the tritium with luminova so the "T<25" marking was no longer required. By 2000 "SWISS" had become "SWISS MADE". It has got the correct bacelet which is the 93150 reference with 501B end links. There are some marks to the bezel insert and some stretch to the bracelet but no more that can be expected to r a 20 year old watch. The submariner is a watch that needs no introduction, as it is unquestionably the most successful and widely known divers watch in the world. It is the watch that set the standard in professional divers watches and one that most other divers watches aspire to emulate. This watch has been used by the military for issue to special forces divers. It has been issued to divers working for under water pipe laying companies. It has been issued to divers working on oil rigs, and used by non commercial divers all over the world – such is the reliability, robustness and practicality of this watch. It is equally at home being worn with a suit or for weekend leisure. It is 300 metres resistant, sturdy uni directional, ratchet operated rotating bezel with screwed down crown and scratch resistant sapphire crystal. It comes complete with all boxes, papers, chronometer card, and hang tags, with serial number on the hang tag, there is a wallet not present. Dimensions are: width is 39.5 mm excluding crown, 43.5 mm including crown and 47 mm lug to lug and thickness is 14 mm
