The men's Rolex 116619 Submariner diver's watch has earned many nicknames in the over ten years it has been on the market, including the Rolex Smurf and the Blue Submariner. Its feature set includes a striking white gold finish paired with a handsome blue maxi dial and a matching blue ceramic bezel insert. The white gold finish is forged in-house using high-quality alloys and will offer a lustrous shine for a lifetime of wear. What's more, is the white gold finish is also referred to as "grey gold", which means that is it solid gold and even if it's scratched, only more gold will be visible. The Cerachrom bezel is even more impressive than the gold material, offering a highly resilient finish that is almost entirely scratch-resistant and will resist years of exposure to sun and salt water. If properly cared for, the Smurf will look like new for many years to come. The ref. 116619 came to market in 2008 and will appeal to serious collectors who seek a bold Rolex sports watch.
