Rolex Submariner ref# 16610 Patina’d Tritium circa 1993 Papers

$8,350.00

Classic Rolex Submariner stainless steel with date ref 16610. The E serial # dates production of this watch to 1990, but original Rolex Japan warrantee papers show a sale date of 1993. This desirable example Submariner features a very pleasing original ivory patina’d tritium indexes dial and hands. The 40mm diameter case is in excellent unpolished condition, with sapphire crystal and unidirectional elapsed time bezel. An exceptionally mint condition example of this now discontinued model, all the more desirable for collectors as this example comes with earlier gloss dial with tritium (SWISS T<25) indexes and hands, rather than the later Luminova or Super Luminova (SWISS or SWISS MADE) dial signatures. Powered by self winding calibre 3135 movement with sweep seconds. With very good condition original Rolex heavy Oyster 93150 bracelet with flip lock clasp, 501B end pieces, and R bracelet clasp code. Guaranteed genuine, serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation. Includes Rolex service papers shown in photos.

Your purchase includes our popular branded glazed Italian leather pouch, popular for travel and storage.

Vintage Rolex & Pre-Owned Rolex Watches

There is no watch brand more associated with quality, prestige, luxury, success, and social status than Rolex. Founded in the UK in 1908 and soon relocated to Switzerland, Rolex is credited with countless technical advances in time keeping accuracy, the introduction in 1928 of the water and dust resistant “Oyster” case, and in 1933, the perfection of the self winding “Perpetual” movement. With sponsorship of sporting events as wide reaching as the America’s cup, to the Daytona 500, golf and tennis tournaments, and expeditions to the far reaches of the world, Rolex has always promoted it’s brand as an icon of success, achievement, and conquest. With popular “tool” watches such as the diver’s Submariner or Seadweller, the Aviator’s dual time zone GMT, the spelunker’s 24 hour Explorer, or the auto racer’s Daytona, Rolex has created loyal followings for the sports minded man. And the dressy Datejust and Presidential models, once the CEO’s trademark timepiece, are now much sought after by both men and woman as a luxury fashion statement. Whether vintage Rolex or more contemporary, your choice of a Rolex will always be a good choice.

All of our pre-owned Vintage Rolex watches are fully restored and guaranteed genuine to give you excellent service and piece of mind.
