Rolex Submariner 1988

Fine Watch Club are delighted to offer this early transitional ref 16610 additional Rolex Submariner 1988.

The Rolex Submariner 16610 is a highly esteemed model in the Rolex lineup, often praised for its blend of vintage aesthetics and modern functionality. Produced from 1988 until 2010, the 16610 is considered a benchmark in the Submariner series.The watch features a 40mm stainless steel case and a matching Oyster bracelet. The earlier models have drilled lug holes, making it easier to change the bracelet, while later versions (post-2000) feature solid end links and no lug holes, providing a sleeker appearance and improved durability.

The unidirectional rotating bezel is equipped with an aluminum insert, marked for 60 minutes with a luminous pearl at the zero marker for visibility in low-light conditions.

The watch uses a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with a Cyclops lens over the date for enhanced legibility.

The dial is glossy black with white text and features applied hour markers in white gold. The luminescent material evolved from tritium (marked as “SWISS – T<25”) to Luminova and eventually to Super-LumiNova, improving visibility in the dark.

The Rolex Submariner 1988 ref 16610 is powered by the Rolex Caliber 3135, an automatic movement known for its reliability and accuracy. It has a 48-hour power reserve and features a date complication with a quickset function.

This model represents a transitional period in the Submariner line, bridging the gap between vintage models with acrylic crystals and newer models with ceramic bezels and larger cases. It maintains the classic Submariner design while incorporating modern materials and manufacturing techniques.

Overall, the Rolex Submariner 16610 remains a favorite among watch enthusiasts for its blend of heritage, functionality, and enduring style.
