Let me introduce you to one of the sexiest Gold Submariners ever made.

Produced in the golden year of Rolex 1988 aka R Serial this watch is a true Gem in it’s category.

1988 is the first year of production for reference 16618 as it was preceded by reference 16808 in the numeric serial production.

This specific timepiece is in outstanding conditions and complete with it’s fullest set.

A main point of attraction for me is the purple color change dial and bezel insert. Unbelievably when light hits the dial it turns to purple from it’s original sea blue color. Such an outstanding piece! The bezel insert follows suit with the dial creating a colorful phenomenon.

The case is thick,sharp and even with prominent satin finish and sharp bevels on lugs. The hallmarks on the back lugs are crisp and deep.

The dial is perfect on the deep sea blue background and the markers acquired a gorgeous cream patina.

The hand set is in perfect conditions.

The bezel insert shows no wear.

The solid gold Oyster bracelet is tight as new and spectacular.

Original Rolex punched warranty
