The Rolex Submariner 16613LN, when vintage meets modern. The perfect example of a watch that doesn’t need to be 50 years old to be vintage.This sharp-looking piece dates back to the year 2005 and is in absolute mint condition. The number ‘3’ and the letters ‘LN’ in this Sub’s reference tell us that we’re talking about a bicolour version (stainless steel and 18k yellow gold) with a black bezel insert (Lunette Noire). The watch has a case diameter of 40mm and is powered by caliber 3135.Underneath the sapphire crystal, we’ll find the black glossy dial including a super luminova index and hand set. Besides that, the glossy black dial has been executed with a very nice and distinctive golden text instead of the regular white printing.The watch comes with its booklets, original punched papers and the original inner and outer box.

Introduction

Rolex SubmarinerIn 1953, Rolex introduced one of the world’s first wrist watches geared specifically towards divers: the Submariner. Rolex had to confront a number of challenges when designing its first dive watch. The watch obviously had to withstand significant amounts of pressure and had to accurately measure time spent underwater, which the first Submariner achieved by featuring a 330ft/100m depth rating and a rotating diving bezel. It also had to be easily legible in conditions of reduced visibility yet aesthetically pleasing. Hence, the Sub’s iconic large white tritium hour markers and Mercedes hands set against a contrasting black dial.The Submariner is the most iconic and desirable luxury watch of all time and has been adopted by luminaries such as Jacques Cousteau, Che Guevara, and none other than James Bond. Our favorite Bond, Sean Connery, wore a big crown Sub in the 1962 classic ‘Dr. No’. The watch was also featured in ‘Goldfinger’ and ‘Thunderball’.
