The ref. 16613 was released a few years later in 1988 and enjoyed a long production run before being discontinued and replaced in 2009 with the current Cerachrom ceramic bezel 6-digit ref. 116613, marking the end of the aluminum bezel Rolex Submariner two-tone watches.
Nickname’Bluesy’, is this one from the year 1996. Bought from the first owner who traveled the world with it. Always took good care of it, saved the box & papers, up til the steel anchor. The watch was a companion on route 66 up til in the Mediterrane ocean. Bought from the very first owner, a guy with a very big heart. He would like the watch to have new adventures!
Mid 1990s Rolex changed from tritium to luminova. This black dial has the tritium luminous which is now discolored slightly. So looking for a watch who has character, a complete set, and that has a previous life, ready to start a new chapter…than this the one!
