ROLEX SUBMARINER DATE 16618 – 18K YELLOW GOLD BLUE BEZEL AND BLUE TURNED PURPLE DIAL
When the Submariner hit the market in the 1950s, the watch was only produced in steel. It featured a time-only dial, a bi-directional bezel, and was water-resistant up to 100 meters. During the first couple of generations, the stainless steel references saw numerous upgrades, including the arrival of chronometer-certified rated movement, an increase in case size, the implementation of crown guards, and the addition of a date window and accompanying Cyclops magnification lens.
The next stop in the history is the Submariner 16618, which is the all-gold variant of the transitional ref. 16800. The 1980s, with improved functionality and materials, marked the transition from the vintage Submariner to the modern generation.
