Up for sale is a great Submariner 16610 w/ original punched papers sold new in 1990. The watch is an L serial number dating to 1989 on a non-Rolex leather strap.

The watch is in overall good condition for its age, and the dial has a nice aged vintage look-bubbling on the dial. There are small scratches on the case and bezel. You can see on the close up photos of the dial. See photos for condition!

The model and serial numbers are clearly visible between the lugs.

We do not know the service history on the watch, however it is fully functional, smooth to wind/set, and keeping time. It comes with box set, swiss papers, Submariner booklet, Your Rolex Oyster booklet, calendar card and wallet. We do not guarantee the timekeeping on this watch and it will need servicing.
