Many improvements were made for the release of ref 116610 that were not available on Rolex 16610. One of the most popular features is the inclusion of a ceramic bezel. The new ceramic, or Cerachrom, bezel on ref 116610 is scratch-proof unlike ref 16610’s aluminum bezel. This notable feature has led to ref 116610 being nicknamed the "Ceramic Bezel Submariner."
Let me finish by an overview, but bear in mind I’m a bit biased. I love my Rolex watches.
Pros: Strong name, watch will keep it’s value. Classic design, the mould after all sports watches are created. High quality hands and dial and an overall good finish. Very accurate at first glance. Probably a lifetime support by the manufacturer.
Cons: Perhaps a bit pricey to some.
I was first introduced to submariner back in 1987 when I was a young navy officer in west coast. One of the officer that I served with suggested that I order one from the exchange catalogue which I did as a present to myself. Not knowing much about the watch at the time I ordered one without the date and acrylic glass for $900 because the date version was about $500 more. It wasn't chronometer rated but back then I didn't know the difference.
That watch stayed with me through my entire navy tour and was with me during the first Persian Gulf war and other world events. I took really good care of it and was my favorite.
After I left the service, one day I visited Tourneau watch store and the sales manager offered to give $2000 towards a new submariner date which at the time costed $3200. This was around year 2000. I thought this was a good deal so I took it. What I didn't know at the time was that my submariner with acrylic glass and smaller diameter bezel was a collectors item. Immediately I missed the watch and went back next day to get the watch back but it was already sold and gone. That was one of my biggest regret and I learned hard way that newer is not necessary better.
The new submariner didn't feel right so I purchased another newer version of non-date model with sapphire glass. It didn't feel right also, so I sold that one quickly. I kept the submariner date for next 16 years or so and it served me well. Until one day I sold it to support my eldest daughter's college cost. (It was an excellent condition and I sold for $5500)
But I missed my submariner very much. I felt empty without it and want to have it back. Then last week, my wife present me with this current non-date 114060 model. ( I prefer non-date model now) I love this model and I see that Rolex has come a long way and improved the watch much. The new clasp is perfect. New case is outstanding. Ceramic bezel is great. The sapphire glass is now flushed with bezel. But there still one thing Rolex overlooked that I would like to see it changed. That is the glass is way too reflective. It seems there's no reflective coating as other fine watches out there. It visually impairs observation on a quick glance. But that only my opinion. One more is that markers now have blue illumination but on day light I can tell that it still have bluish tint to it if you look carefully. That not big deal as the reflective glass but I've noticed.
Overall, I believe you can't find a better watch than Rolex submariner for everyday wear. It remains classic and it's the watch of my choice. I believe it's better to have one great watch you wear everyday than a collection of many lessor watches. If you can afford one do get it and make it enjoyment out of rest of your life as I did with my submariners.
This is the most 'salable' and 'tradable' Rolex watch: it's almost 'currency'. That shouldn't be your main concern but it's nice to know. This is a serious investment unless you're a dot-com billionaire or a Russian Oligarch or rap star. Go to an Authorized Dealer and try a few Rolex watches on and see which one you like best.
I am lucky enough to own three Rolexes but this is the flagship, even if it isn't the fanciest or most expensive. For many foks, the Sub Date is the watch that defines,the brand.
Several things that you need to understand: Sirst, this watch is HEAVY. After you wear it for a while it won't be much of an issue but I don't know if I would recommend anyone going from wearing no watch regularly to wearing this. Second, you probably know this, but the watch is wound (mostly) by wearing it. If you don't wear this everyday or at least 5-6 days a week, don't bother. Of course, you can reset it and wind it with the knob but it is designed and built to be worn. Third, it may take you a while to get the fit on your wrist just right. They come with an extra link or two and the clasp has multiple settings. It is best to have a Rolex jeweler set this for you and maybe teach you how to do some easy settings. Even after years of owning this, I was unsure of how to reset the band properly. Finally, while this watch isn't the size of a Suunto, it is big. It will get noticed. I never felt insecure by wearing it, but I am a fairly big guy who few are going to rob. I don't want to discourage anyone from getting one of these if they want them, but be aware of certain risks.
I sold my Sub in 2014 (for 4x what I paid for it!!) simply because I hadn't worn it in years and wanted someone else to enjoy it. However, I'm still a big fan! The new ones I think are better than mine in many ways.
