This beautiful black bezel black dial Rolex 116610 ceramic Submariner is the replacement to the discontinued Rolex 16610 Submariner. Both watches have 40mm diameters, but the ceramic 116610 appears large on the wrist due to the higher profile ceramic bezel and the beefier super lugs.
The black ceramic bezel is virtually scratch proof, and the markings are platinum blasted at high temperatures onto the ceramic insert for a fade free finish that will not be affected by UV rays or salt water over time. The movement is the same calibre 3135 as in the 16610 and 16610LV anniversary Submariner this model replaced, but Rolex has added the new blue parachrom hairspring.
The bracelet (reference 97200) is arguably the most comfortable and functional in the business, with a sliding adjustable glidelock clasp. Unlike the 16610 and 16610LV’s, the steel middle links are now solid steel as opposed to hollow. This change creates a much heavier watch on the wrist. Lastly, the black dial is one of the most beautiful Rolex dials with a deep rich and brilliant black color. The 904L steel remains unchanged, but the crystal cyclops has received an antiglare AR treatment underneath the crystal.
