We are proud to present this luxurious 18ct yellow gold Rolex Submariner Date for sale in mint condition for its age, fully checked and authenticated by our accredited workshop.
The Rolex Submariner, first introduced in 1953, is a legendary timepiece with a rich history deeply intertwined with the world of diving. Originally designed as a professional diver's watch, and soon becoming the first watch to achieve a water resistance of 30atm (300m/1000ft), the Submariner quickly gained iconic status for its exceptional durability, precision, and distinctive aesthetic. Over the years, it has evolved while maintaining its core attributes, becoming a symbol of both underwater exploration and timeless elegance. With its robust construction and technological innovations, the Rolex Submariner continues to be a sought-after classic, embodying a legacy of horological excellence and adventure.
This iteration of the Submariner, reference 16618, is housed in a 40mm case crafted from 18ct yellow gold and complemented by a matching uni-rotational dive bezel fitted with a blue insert with 15-minute dive scale. The vibrant blue sunburst dial is adorned with Superluminova luminous hour markers and hands, accented in yellow gold for optimal visibility.The dial is safeguarded by a flat sapphire crystal, which includes a cyclops lens magnifying the date aperture at 3 o'clock, while the watch retains a water resistance of 30atm (300m/1000ft) thanks to its Triplelock screw-down crown. Finally, the timepiece is elegantly secured with the iconic 18ct yellow gold Oyster link bracelet featuring a folding safety lock clasp, with the watch itself reliably driven by the automatic calibre 3135 chronometer movement and protected by a closed screwdown caseback.
Originally purchased in March 2006 and in mint condition for its age, this Submariner comes with its original inner & outer boxes, Oyster booklet, Submariner booklet, translation booklet, leather warranty holder and original perforated international warranty certificate.
This Submariner is sold with our 12-month warranty from the date of purchase.
