A Fantastic 2001 Submariner with Date Aperture, Reference 16610, Offered For Sale with its Original Box and Papers and also Rolex service Papers, in Pristine Condition. 

Rolex First produced in 1953, the Rolex Submariner was the first diver’s wrist watch that remained waterproof to a depth of 100 metres (330 feet), following on from the invention of the Oyster Case, the world’s very first waterproof watch, back in 1926.

A classic and much-loved model, the Submariner, reference 16610, has earned its place in the Rolex Hall of Fame as an underwater survival tool with a design entirely dictated by the practical needs of divers. Since 1953, the Submariner has evolved through various models, each one endowed with more technical features to improve overall performance while maintaining the Submariner's instantly recognisable, pared-back classic style.

What’s On Offer 

This 2001 model features Mercedes-style hands, a lollipop sweep seconds hand, date cyclops at 3 o’clock and a black rotating diver’s bezel that matches the original crisp black dial.

This piece is set on a full Oyster bracelet which can be adjusted to size and fits comfortably over a diving suit should you ever wish to use it for the purpose it was intended!

Powered by a Rolex automatic caliber 3135 movement, the watch has a 48-hour power reserve and was waterproof to an impressive 1000 ft (300 metres), when it was produced! 

This watch is in fantastic pre-owned condition and would make a fine addition to any collection as well as being a fine-looking watch on the wrist.
