The overall condition of this 16613 Submariner is immaculate for a second-hand watch. There are a couple of minor imperfections on the blue bezel insert, but still impressive for a piece that was enjoyed since 2009. Please refer to the pictures in determining the condition, pictures are of the exact watch being offered.
Since this was purchased in 2009, it falls into the last batch before the 116613 succeeded it with the ceramic bezel.
Case is made of stainless steel with high-polish finished sides and brush-finished lugs. The unidirectional rotatable 18k yellow gold bezel mounted atop is equipped with a blue aluminum diver's bezel insert. Both the crown (18k yellow gold) and case back (stainless steel) are screw-down. The oyster bracelet has high-polish finished 18k yellow gold center links as well as brush-finished stainless steel outer links and the clasp follows the same configuration. It fits up to a 7.5 inch wrist comfortably.
Functions are displayed on a blue dial that is accompanied by luminescent filled hands, luminous hour markers and a magnified date window at the 3 o'clock position.
Service history is unknown, however, the watch passed through our in-house service center and passed the quality control tests which implies that it is running up to manufacturer's standards. The watch will undergo another set of quality control tests before being shipped. A full one year warranty and certificate of authenticity will be issued by Element iN Time NYC.
