During the late 1960's Rolex began producing the immensely popular Submariner dive watch in luxurious 18K YG thus creating a dressed up variant of a notably sporty watch. The addition of a yellow gold submariner variant offered a watch that could shift effortlessly from adventuresome events in the ocean to classy occasions on land. However the demand for a more durable stainless steel case along with the luxury elements of gold become in higher demand, therefore, the more utilitarian two tone Submariner references were created in 1984 with the 16803. The Rolex Ref. 16613 began production in 1988 as an upgraded reference of the two-tone Submariner line.
The stainless steel case retains sharp factory finishing and shows very gentle wear. The two tone stainless steel/18k YG 93253 bracelet with fixed 701 end pieces exhibits very little stretch and only shows light wear from use. The 18k YG bezel is in excellent condition and the original black insert with the yellow font is free from any fading and or blemishing.
DIAL & HANDS
The stunning black dial is also free of any blemishing and or corrosion. The original tritium lume remains stark-white creating a "like new" appearance with the hands and lume plots matching perfectly.
None. The watch was recently serviced and is running at COSC spec backed by a 1-year warranty on the accuracy of timekeeping.
