Cool. Is it going to be a luminova dial version or older T<25 model?

interested in your camera gear setup and how you shot much of the photos in the review. Lens / gear etc. great review I love my Sub (bought from an AD in 2004) and it is so classic. It now needs to share time with my new PANDS 116500LN but the Sub has served me well for years - in to Rolex every 6 or when I break something on the inside. Nice pics and write up BTW.

Thanks a lot.

I use pretty old Nikon DX80 with Nikkor AFS 18-200 Nikkor objective. It's a good combo but getting the actual light setup is much more important than the camera. Cheers!

The setup can be even as simple as this. It's all about lighting.

Thanks man.

50 years in production. No significant visual changes at all during that time. That's quite an achievement.

Thanks.

Just for the record: NOS 16610's are getting crazy expensive. Probably applies to all 5-digits.

https://www.chrono24.com/rolex/rolex...id13058709.htm

I think the average asking prices have gone up lately. They were starting from 6K... now almost 8K. What's going on?

The review gave me a deeper appreciation for this reference. It is on the short list of pieces for near future acquisition. Thank you.

Wrist shot above is great, too.

Thank you.

Yes out of the 15 Rolex watches I've owned the 16610 Sub is easily my favorite.

Great review Juho! It's funny, but I've owned perhaps ten various versions of the Submariner, have a couple of 5513's, a 16600, and a 114060 now, but I've never had a 16610. It really is a modern classic that tends to get overlooked by collectors because it was such a ubiquitous model for so long. At some point I need to add one to my collection. It's nice to see a post about watches instead of watch markets!

Thank you Sir.

Maybe some people think it's too common. But hey, there is a reason why it is so common. It's generally loved and in most people it's synonymous with Rolex (along with the TT DJ).
