Rolex Submariner ref# 16610 Tropical Tritium circa 1988


A beautiful looking circa 1988 vintage Rolex Submariner ref# 16610 serial # R7 with richly patina’d luminous tritium indexes, matching patina’d tritium hands, and matching patina’d pearl! Featuring a sapphire crystal, quick set caliber 3135 movement, unidirectional elapsed time bezel, and glossy black original tritium T<25 dial with white gold luminous surrounds with tritium luminous indexes and hands. With original bezel insert in great shape, with nicely patina’d pearl.

The tritium indexes have aged to a warm cream tint that contrasts warmly off the gloss black dial and yield a rich vintage character to this piece. Fully serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers, left unpolished as acquired, and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation.

The current example boasts particularly pleasing cream color luminous indexes and hands, and a nicely patina’d pearl on the elapsed time bezel. An especially pleasing example.

Includes our fine glazed Italian leather watch pouch, great for travel and storage. A $55 value.
