The 1988 is the first year of the introduction of the reference Submariner in Rolesor 16 613, equipped with the caliber 3135 and the calendar with quick functions. This particular example features a beautiful blue dial that perfectly matches the color of the aluminum bezel, as well as two-tone 40 mm Oyster case and bracelet. The present lot has been preserved in very nice conditions, the yellow gold and stainless steel bracelet and the steel case still have the original proportions with no signs of wear and the bezel still displays the original blue factory color. The blue dial is spotless while the hands and applied hour markers with white-gold edges are luminescent and matching in tone but the main peculiarity that makes this watch absolutely desirable are the ten letters slightly above the hands. Their composition creates the important retailer and jeweler name Tiffany & Co. In fact, any model bearing the prestigious name of New York retailer on the dial is an exceedingly rare breed.
