Rolex Submariner Date Purple Dial Yellow Gold 16618 Box and Papers


Purple rain over a golden sunset…

The tool watch reimagined as a piece of jewellery is one of Rolex’s key achievements, especially when it comes to the Submariner. When produced in yellow gold, the watch perfectly bridges the gap between a sports watch and the jet-set lifestyle. Oh, and its seriously cool and has some serious heft on the wrist! This 16618 remains in outstanding condition, with a great sharp case and strong blue bezel insert. The blue dial has gracefully aged over the past three decades and has turned a beautiful purple hue that pops in the spring sun. The solid link yellow gold Oyster bracelet, ref 92908, is in fantastic tight condition and comprises of 11 links and has reference 468 endlinks. This glamorous gold Sub Date is accompanied by wooden inner box and outer box, punched papers showing the watch was sold in Germany in 1992, booklets and the document wallet. The watch has been fully serviced by our watchmaker.
