So you want to buy a Submariner? One phone call or visit to your authorized dealer should scratch that particular itch…correct? Well, to quote Dwight Schrute, FALSE! As most of us are aware, there is an ever increasing shortage of new Submariners which is creating waiting lists and causing the few new pieces out there to sell at way above retail.This is a world wide phenomena with many theories and much speculation regarding the reasons behind it. This space is reserved for watch descriptions, so I will refrain from voicing an opinion on this matter. Instead, let’s talk about this classic 16610. Produced in 1997 this beauty comes with original box, papers and even the Rolex anchor key chain. If you appreciate the charm of an older Submariner replete with a finer case, pin holes on the lugs and an old school bracelet that has a distinct jingle jangle on the wrist. then look no further..
