Another Fantastic Find! This Excellent condition 1994 Rolex Submariner Date Reference 16610 - pre-ceramic bezel, with box and paperwork

The Rolex Submariner is not a watch which needs introducing. Arguably one of the most sought-after and beloved timepieces of all time, there is no mistaking this watch. Introduced in 1954, further popularised by James Bond in 1962, and now a timeless piece of design and horological mastery, the Submariner is a collectable and wearable classic which is here to stay. 

This particularly fine 1994 example of the Submariner features the earlier aluminium bezel, making for a jet black polished look to the bezel. Later editions look much more matte: in 2008, then the ceramic bezel came in, making this rare not only by age, but by manufacture too. The date aperture at 3:00 features a magnifying cyclops, and the dial is clearly recognised by the mercedes hour hands, rounded hour plots and 'lollipop' seconds hand. 

What's on offer

This particular example of the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner 16610 has been meticulously cared for since its production in 1994. It is in pristine condition after having a full service and light polish, there are some slight blemishes to the bezel however they are barely visible to the naked eye. 

The watch is a box and papered set; original chronometer guarantee, chronometer certificate and instruction booklet/Rolex diving booklet.
