Up for sale is a fantastic watch that is perfectly dancing the line between a modern collector's item and rock solid daily driver.

This is an A serial stainless steel Rolex Submariner ref. 16610 with original box and papers, featuring the rare "Swiss Only" dial! The watch includes everything but the green hang tag, and was originally retailed in May of 1999.

Some things to note: there are scuffs and scratches and small dings all over this thing (including the bezel insert and crystal). This watch was WORN, not babied. See photos for condition. Additionally, the date code on the clasp dates to April of 2006, so at some point the original bracelet was replaced. There is no "S" next to the date code (or on the wetsuit extension), so it's not a service replacement. Speaking of the bracelet, it's fully linked and will easily fit an 8" wrist.

We did not get any service documentation with this watch, so I'm assuming it has not been serviced. We recommend the watch be serviced after purchase. As of listing it, the watch is fully functional, smooth to wind and set, and keeping accurate time according to our timing machine (+/- 0 seconds/day variation). Again, we don't know the service history, and we recommend this watch be serviced after purchase in order to keep running the way it is.

See photos for condition please!
