Another handsome V serial Rolex 116613 Submariner blue dial with ceramic bezel and fatter lugs compared to the discontinued 16613 Submariner. The blue color on this bezel and dial has been updated at the 2013 Baselworld as Rolex brings back the deeper shade of blue (Sunburst) previously found on the Rolex 16613 aluminum bezel blue Submariner.
The blue ceramic bezel is virtually scratch proof, and the markings are yellow gold blasted at high temperatures onto the ceramic insert for a fade free finish. The movement is the same calibre 3135 as in the 16613 Submariner this model replaced, but Rolex has added the new blue parachrom hairspring.
The bracelet is arguably the most comfortable and functional in the business, with a sliding adjustable glidelock. Unlike the 16613, the gold middle links are now solid gold as opposed to previously hollow. This change creates a much heavier watch on the wrist, one with great wear presence. Lastly, the blue dial is one of the most striking Rolex dials with a mesmerizing blue that has to be seen to be believed.
