Stunning 1998 Steel and Gold Rolex Submariner 16613 Full Set with Rolex Service

The Overview

This is a beautiful example of the iconic Rolex Submariner in steel and solid 18ct gold (bezel & bracelet inserts) from 1998. The steel and gold case is in overall excellent condition with only the most minor signs of wear – the watch was serviced by Rolex in 2013 and has barely been worn since). The original and stunning blue dial is again in excellent condition. The very high grade chronometer standard automatic Rolex signed movement is pristine and has just been service by our professional watchmaker. The watch sits on the original steel & 18ct bracelet which is in excellent condition and a good size – 11 links and please state your wrist size when ordering (the age reference on the deployment is ‘Z11’ dating it to 1998). In terms of provenance we have:

  • The original punched papers showing it was sold in 1998 by Watches of Switzerland in Birmingham
  • The Rolex wallet and chronometer chip
  • The Rolex boxes, inner and outer
  • The Rolex service card from 2013

This is a stunning example of one of the most beautiful Submariners and we will give a 12 month guarantee on the movement.
