The 16613 Rolex Submariner “Bluesy” always stops people in their tracks. The bright royal blue dial with rich complimentary 18 karat yellow gold trim is striking to say the least. Large bold luminous hour markers and hands contrast with functional efficiency like no other. I can’t think of another watch that announces who it is and what it does in such a bold statement like a Submariner. The 7 lines of text and logo are embossed with golden ink so thick it actually stands off the dial in the 3rd dimension. Love them or hate them, Rolex is without question the most significant watch brand ever. Even though they now use scrambled serial numbers to keep production numbers a secret, everyone knows the brand produce over a million watches per year with revenues in the billions. Hans Wilsdorf the founder of Rolex owned all the shares in the company. He had no close heirs to pass along his 100% ownership in the company to. Upon his death he wanted the company to continue what he started so he set up a trust, appropriately named The Hans Wilsdorf Foundation. In theory it’s a charitable not for profit organization. Although it does contribute to worthy causes the foundations main goal is for the continued dominance of the brand. It has no shareholders to pay dividends to or share profits with, only a group of trustees who decide how to reinvest the vast revenue. Some of the profits are dumped backed into state of the art automated factories that continually update their technology. They also pay very good wages to the most talented engineers and watchmakers they’re able to recruit. No one really knows just how much money the trust has squirrelled away over the decades but it must be in the billions. There isn’t another watch company that operates in such a manner. You can buy into a little bit of the enigmatic brand with this classic Bluesy Submariner. The condition is very good for a watch dating from the year 2006. The original 93253 oyster bracelet date coded OP3 is showing almost no stretch or sag. All the features are working as designed and the watch is keeping great time. A recent full service from one of the finest independent watch repair facilities in Canada shows a gain rate of just 1 second per day. Just a quick ultrasonic cleaning was really all that was needed to make it look practically unworn. The crisp edges and fine details still show almost like new although the watch has experience a soft refinishing when serviced September 2017. The more jewellery like creations of the original pure tool design stainless steel Submariners have seen amazing appreciation in value over the past few years. A newer ceramic bezel, heavier case version (116613) replaced the 16613 in 2009 but many people prefer the easier to wear, lighter original design. Included with purchase is a 1 year Bill Le Boeuf Jewellers mechanical warranty. Estate priced at $12,444.00 CAD. Stock #e12212.
