Rolex Submariner Date – Ref. 116610LN

10 minutes read

The Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner Date 116610LN ranks among the most iconic designs ever conceived in watchmaking. By every chance, it has inspired more watches than any other timepiece, and yet, it remains the one and only dive watch of its kind.

With its 40mm wide Oyster case, the Submariner Date ensures not only a 300-meter water resistance rating, but excellent day-to-day wearability as well

Wrapped in Oystersteel, Rolex’s especially corrosion resistant stainless steel alloy, and protected by a Cerachrom ceramic bezel, even in its most modern form the Submariner Date has carried on its core design elements. Those very design elements that have made it the pinnacle dive watch since its first introduction in 1953.

Interestingly, the modern appeal of the Submariner could not have possibly been foreseen by Rolex 66 years ago, when it was first introduced to the world.

The contemporary appeal of the Submariner and especially the Submariner Date lies in its remarkable ability to combine professional-grade technical solutions with aesthetics that are the absolute ideal for everyday wearability.

The Submariner Date is a shining demonstration of historic and modern Rolex watchmaking know-how. It rightfully belongs to the Professional line of Rolex watches — while the other main line of Rolex watches is aptly called Classic. With its robust Oyster case, water resistant to a depth of 300 meters, its Chromalight luminescent display to aide legibility under water and in the dark, and its three-link Oyster bracelet with Glidelock extension system for a perfect fit, it really is prepared for professional use scenarios.

The triple-link Oyster bracelet is flawlessly integrated into the Oyster case, owing to outstanding engineering design and manufacturing know-how. This results in optimal wearing comfort and a robust construction

Meanwhile, its monochrome colorway allows for outstanding variability and a superb match for any outfit — from casual to formal. The unique sheen of its Oystersteel exterior is further enhanced by Rolex’s extraordinary levels of finishing. Polished and brushed surfaces work together to create a luxurious setting for all the technology that we just described.

The exceptionally scratch-proof Cerachrom ceramic bezel insert of the Submariner Date features unique, PVD-applied platinum graduations. A minute, yet notable detail that speaks volumes about the manufacturing prowess of Rolex

The dial, a glossy black that appears to be as deep as those mighty depths the Submariner is capable of conquering, is adorned with 18ct white gold indices, with 18ct white gold hands passing over them. The dial layout, rendered complete by its unique mixture of rounded and rectangular indices, with a triangular 12 o’clock marker, along with crisp, white text, is among the most recognizable in watchmaking history.

Modern and clean-cut, yet timeless and instantly recognizable: the Submariner Date has defined professional dive watches since 1953

Underneath the dial beats the Manufacture Rolex Caliber 3135, powered by the Perpetual bi-directional self-winding system.

Its paramagnetic Parachrom hairspring, produced in-house by Rolex, sits among a host of technologically advanced features which cumulatively allow the Submariner Date to bear the Superlative Chronometer designation on its dial.

The movement inside every Submariner Date timepiece has passed the independent COSC chronometer certification tests, only to then be cased up and subjected to Rolex’s yet more rigorous and complex in-house testing procedures. Daily accuracy within an exceptionally strict -2/+2 seconds, self-winding capacity, power reserve and water resistance are all tested, before the Submariner Date could emerge as a Superlative Chronometer. The Submariner, just like every Rolex watch currently produced, comes with a 5-year international manufacturer’s warranty.

Designed as a robust case for professional use, the Submariner Date still manages to have an exceptionally thin profile — owing to cutting-edge engineering, this essential feat makes for superb wearing comfort
