3 Rolex Submariner Blue Watches

Just imagine that Rolex made only one watch model to date and it is the Submariner. Do you think that the brand would have earned the same reputation and respect? Well, as long as the watch had been the Submariner, chances are Rolex would have still earned one of the strongest reputations and recognition of any manufacturer.

The Rolex Submariner is one of the most successful dive watches in the world. However, the reason behind the spectacular rise in status has been ideally its versatility. Now:

The colour ‘Blue’ has always been very desirable among Rolex watch aficionados. And, the Submariner’s first onset into the blue was seen in the 1980s. For example, an exquisite two-tone Rolesor that flaunted a matching yellow gold and steel gold case and a contrasting blue bezel and dial.

Today, let’s take a quick look at three classic Rolex Submariner Blue models.

The Rolex Submariner Blue – Rolesor

The Rolex Submariner 16613 was the first blue reference that represented a combination of proficiency and extravagance. However, the robustness of stainless steel corresponding to beautiful yellow gold is a composition that the brand has been refining soon after coining the term ‘Rolesor’ in the 1930s.

The Submariner reference 16613 flaunted a blue sunburst dial surrounded by a blue aluminium bezel that bore the same sparkle. While it became an immediate favourite, the blue Sub enjoyed nearly 20years production run. This watch was later replaced in 2009 by the reference 116613LB.

The Rolex Submariner Blue – Yellow Gold

The gold Rolex Submariner ref. 16618LB appeared first two years later in 1990. Although it featured a similar case style like the Rolesor blue, the gold Sub has more slender lugs gliding smoothly into the bracelet. However, the watch flaunts a pre-Maxi blue readable dial with leaner hands and gold-ringed smaller indexes.

Like its two-tone iteration, the Rolex Submariner ref. 16618LB also enjoyed a long, successful production run until it was replaced with the upgraded ref. 116618LB in 2008.

The Rolex Submariner Blue – White Gold

In 2008, Rolex released a Submariner for the ever first time in 18ct white gold. The Submariner reference 116619 is equipped with the same coloured blue dial along with Cerachrom bezel. Although it took the souvenir as the most expensive watch in the Submariner family, it is indeed a more subtle head-turner compared to its yellow gold siblings. Because of the latest white colour splash, the timepiece was dubbed as the ‘Smurf’.

The Rolex Submariner 116619 is fabricated from Rolex’s factory-made white gold metal and is also solid throughout. This signifies that if there is a scratch on any surface of the watch, it will manifest nothing but more gold.

With an Oyster case, Triplock crown and all other exclusive specifications, the white gold Submariner are yet cherished as the favourite dive watch of the world.
