Of course, ‘Once and Forever’ has also become the motto of many people. Today’s Watch House brings to you a submersible calendar type 116610LN (market price: RMB 65,900) launched by Rolex in 2011. Its predecessor was 16610LN. Although there are not many changes in the overall appearance, but the details The modification still reveals Rolex’s persistent pursuit of perfection. I believe that through the article, everyone can also feel the unique superb craftsmanship and rigorous brand spirit of this traditional century-old watchmaker.
The Rolex Submariner Calendar Type 116610LN, launched in 2011, continues the classic Rolex style from the overall appearance. The subtle changes also reflect the brand’s ingenuity. Please follow the article to savour this wonderful Relive the long watch.
Rolex Submariner Calendar Type 116610LN-Appearance
The Rolex Submariner Calendar Type 116610LN is still the iconic Oyster case, the classic design of the Mercedes-Benz needle and magnifying glass calendar, with a diameter of 40 mm, a thickness of 12.5 mm, and a water resistance of 300 meters. The case and bracelet are made of 904L stainless steel, and the weight of 151 grams makes it smart and stable at the wrist.
The predecessor of this Rolex Submarine Calendar 116610LN introduced today is 16610LN. From the figure, we can clearly see the difference between the two watches. The first is that the shoulder guard of 116610LN has increased by 1— —2mm, meanwhile it becomes more smooth and natural in the overall connection angle.
The second very obvious difference is that 116610LN no longer has a foramen at the lugs.
The ceramic bezel, which rotates counterclockwise in one direction, has excellent hardness and feel. The gap-free gear engagement is comparable to similar watches (such as the new Omega Seahorse or Panerai diving). The bezel is designed with 60 notches to better grasp its rotation.
From the overall design style of the dial, the Mercedes-Benz hands, bubble readings and time scales basically continue the classic Rolex feel, especially this foam, which highlights the perfect flatness of the 1.5 mm sapphire crystal, which has been recognized since 1970. A sign. However, there are still slight changes compared to the previous 16610LN. All the round and bar time scales on the dial except the inverted triangle at 12 o’clock have been increased to facilitate more intuitive reading time.
As shown in the figure, the time scale and pointer on the disk are covered with a luminous layer, which can emit blue light in a dark environment. In fact, the choice of color is very important. The different wavelengths of radiation formed by sunlight are gradually absorbed as the depth of the sea deepens, and the order is red, orange, yellow, and green. Only blue-violet is left in the end, so this is why Rolex chose blue.
Rolex Submariner Calendar Type 116610LN-Features
In 1953, Rolex invented the triple-locked winding crown. This crown design can further enhance the waterproof function of the watch. After many technical innovations, the triple-locked device is composed of 10 different parts. Tighten the oyster case completely.
One of the most important improvements of the Rolex Submariner Calendar 116610LN bracelet is the completion of a comfortable fit miracle. Made of simple 904L steel with considerable thickness. The Glidelock buckle allows divers to time wear a 3 mm thick wetsuit and still adjust the strap. The special design allows the wearer to extend the strap by about 20 mm without the use of any tools.
Rolex Submariner Calendar Type 116610LN-Movement
The Rolex Submariner Calendar Type 116610LN is equipped with a new generation Rolex 3135 self-winding movement with a diameter of 28.50 mm and a thickness of 6.00 mm. The frequency is 28,800 vibrations per hour. The mystery of the Rolex movement lies in the use of the Parachrome device. This new device helps the watch resist magnetism, shock, and high temperature. These three main enemies ensure the movement of the movement is accurate. I think such protection is essential. .
Summary: The most intuitive change of the Rolex Submariner Calendar Type 116610LN is that the design of the shoulder pads makes the overall watch more sporty. At the same time, the subtle changes in the dial time scale also reflect the brand’s hard work. It is worth mentioning that the use of Parachrome device makes the heart of the watch better anti-interference effect. Of course, in addition to performance changes, the appearance of the transformation will be mixed for Rolex friends, I think this is normal. The current market price of this watch is about RMB ¥ 65,900. In this price range, I believe that with the solid market foundation and high cost-effective technical equipment of Rolex, I personally think that the Rolex Submariner Calendar Type 116610LN is still very advantageous.
