The Rolex Submariner family is one of the most popular among the brand's line up of watches and the now discontinued 16610 still remains a favorite within the diver's watch collection.


The original Submariner was introduced by Rolex in 1953 as the first diving watch that could safely reach a depth of 330 feet, and quickly became the quintessential tool watch for under water explorers. Over the years, several design and technical modifications have been made to the Submariner and the ref. 16610 was in production from the late 1980s until 2010, where it was eventually replaced by the present ref. 116610. In 2003, the Rolex 16610LV, with a distinct green bezel and "maxi" dial, was unveiled to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Submariner collection. This particular model is now affectionately known as the "Kermit".

Rolex 16610 Review

In terms of functionality as dive gear, the 16610 is waterproof to a depth of 1,000 feet and features a unidirectional rotatable bezel with an aluminum insert marked with graduations to allow for timing of immersion and decompression periods. It's also equipped with a screw-down crown and Triplock system to ensure its waterproofness.

Aside from its technical capabilities, the Submariner's popularity can be attributed to its great looks. Its 40mm stainless steel Oyster case, black dial, "Mercedes" hands, luminescent hour-markers, come together to form the watch's iconic look.

The Submariner 16610 is equipped with a date function - the no date Subs have different references numbers - with its date window at 3 o'clock magnified by the famous Rolex Cyclops lens. Some versions of the 16610 case sides have holes through the lugs to facilitate interchanging straps, while later models made after 2003, no long have them.

Rolex 116610 vs. 16610

The present day version of the steel Submariner-Date is the 116610 and one of the big differences to the preceding 16610 include the use of the Cerachrom bezel insert - a scratch and fade proof ceramic for an even more robust timepiece. Another notable change is the doubling of the width of the crown and lugs, making the newer model seem larger, although it still has a 40mm case. Current Submariner watches are also available in white and yellow gold, as well as two-tone versions.
