My New Submariner 116610

Hey all,

My wife recently gifted me my first Sub-C 116610 as a wedding gift to me. She had known I always wanted a newer model Rolex as I have a GMT Master II Pepsi already but it is the older model and does not come with glide lock, larger lugs and ceramic bezel. I was very pleased and happy when I opened the gift and plan to keep this watch for the long haul. Here are some pics of the watch when I opened it and some pics of me wearing it on our honeymoon in Australia... while we were in Australia we passed by a watch store and a Cartier Ballon Bleu caught her eye and once I saw the look on her face when she tried it on I knew I had to get it for her so I also put a pic of her Ballon Bleu that we purchased below!

Cheers

Congrats ! I'm sporting a 2018 Black Sub date , I went to 3 AD on 4/3/18 and was put on waiting lists for all 4 of their stores , I took a chance and called a store I bought my first Sub at back in 1990 , they had one !! they had just got it in 2 days prior ...I couldn't believe it and that it was still there !! ! I drove the 100 miler to get it the same day ! I cant believe the differences ! the ceramic bezel is amazing , in certain dark lights its looks like glass !! love it !! enjoy !
