The Submariner is among the most iconic — if not The most iconic — timepieces Rolex has ever produced and beyond any doubt one of Rolex’s most coveted models in the history of horology. The first yellow gold Rolex Submariner was introduced in 1969. It was the Rolex Submariner 1680/8. It came with either a black nipple dial and black bezel or a blue nipple dial and blue bezel. Colors schemes that have stuck with the yellow gold Submariners to this day. This example was introduced in 2010 for the newest and current Yellow Gold Submariner, reference 116618, exactly like the wristwatch offered here. The 18K yellow-gold case and bracelet further add an aura of lavishness to the very durable tool watch. Not only is the stylish proportions retained, but it is now even more opulent in a yellow-gold case which contrasts perfectly with the pitch-black dial for an outstandingly powerful final aesthetic effect. The black dial with applied indexes is compleated by its black bezel in untouched condition that still present its original cover. Accompanied by the Original Rolex Box, warranty, booklet and tag.
