Rolex Submariner
116613LN
From an outsider to a classic: The two-tone Submariner in steel, gold and black

The development of the Rolex Submariner Date 116613LN


From a tool watch to a stylish all-rounder


Back in 1933, Rolex patented the combination of materials known as "Rolesor" and went against the trend of the time, which made the materials used in a watch dependent strictly on its intended purpose: Stainless steel was reserved for classic tool watches, while dress watches were made of gold. In the 1980s, the material combination Rolesor was introduced into the Submariner collection with the Submariner 16803. The model was reissued in 1988 and ran from then on under the reference 16613. This predecessor of the later Rolex Submariner Date 116613LN and 116613LB has now finally received the attention it has long deserved.

In 2005, a related series to the Submariner, the GMT-Master II, was launched with the newly developed Super Case. The case measures 40 mm and, due to the enlarged length, width and height of the lugs, has a markedly greater presence on the wrist. In 2008, the Super Case became an important part of the collection at the same time as the Cerachrom bezel and the Glidelock system on the bracelet clasp, forming an important basis for the two-tone Submariner 116613LN.


Reasons to buy a Rolex 116613LN



  • The Rolesor design provides the timepiece with a versatile look whether for everyday office wear or evening events.

  • Used Rolex 116613LN models are available for purchase starting from €12,000.

  • The watch's 300 metres of water resistance and a date complication make the watch a practical companion that is reliable even in extraordinary situations.

  • Since the 116613LN is a discontinued reference, there is a chance for a rewarding investment.

  • The chronometer-certified manufacture Calibre 3135 is ultra-precise and features a power reserve of up to 48 hours.

Visual features & technical specifications


Rolex utilizes its in-house 904L stainless steel alloy for the 116613LN's case together with 18-karat yellow gold. This combination of materials is known at Rolex under the name Rolesor. The watch stands out for its sporty, luxurious design and is equally impressive in terms of functionality, as it is water-resistant up to 300 metres thanks to its screw-down Triplock crown. With indices that are coated with Rolex' patented Chromalight featuring pronounced luminosity, this timepiece provides exceptional readability even in the dark. Additionally, the black Cerachrom bezel, which was specially developed by Rolex, is extremely resistant to scratches and doesn't fade owing to the use of ceramics. The Submariner 116613LN features the signature cyclops lens above the date window at 3 o'clock, as well. To resize of the bracelet quickly, the wearer can make use of the Glidelock system developed by Rolex, which allows the length to be changed between 2 mm and 20 mm simply by using the clasp.

The heart of every 116613LN watch is the Calibre 3135. This precise COSC-certified automatic movement comes with a power reserve of approximately 48 hours and boasts precision of ± 2 seconds per day. Like the bezel, the dial also comes in black and glistens with a beguiling sunray finish. This causes the dial to shine or darken depending on lighting conditions.

The Super Case ensures the necessary presence


The 40 mm case diameter means that the 116613LN isn't much larger when compared with its predecessor bearing the reference number 16613, but the Super Case nevertheless makes for a completely different feel on the wrist. While the 16613 has a sporty and rather modest feel, the 116613LN is noticeably more present on the wrist. Although this perception fades within a short time, it is certainly noticeable in direct comparison. Apart from that, the model is as pleasant to wear as one would expect from a Submariner, but the use of yellow gold means that it isn't as understated as variants made with stainless steel.

In comparison with the 116613LB


Essentially, the references 116613LN and 116613LB don't have any differences. Both watches are Rolesor models of the Submariner Date featuring a Super Case, Calibre 3135 and a water resistance of up to 300 metres. The Oyster bracelet is used on both watches. Only the dial colour and the ceramic inserts on the bezel differentiate the two models. While the Rolex 116613LN comes with a black bezel and matching black dial, the 116613LB features a blue, ceramic bezel and dial. One interesting detail on the dial is the incorporated gold dust, which causes the dial to gleam differently depending on the incidence of light. The two Submariner references also differ in price. The model featuring a blue dial costs significantly more used than the black, bicolour model.

In comparison with the Tudor Heritage Black Bay 79733N


When comparing the Submariner 116613LN and the Black Bay, it is immediately apparent that there are similarities and the obvious affiliation to the Tudor family. The entire Black Bay Collection is reminiscent of the early Submariner models and likewise comes with no crown protection. However, in the case of the Black Bay 79733N, there are both similarities and differences present. Both watches come equipped with a steel and yellow gold case and bracelet, a black bezel, and a black dial. While the Submariner features a magnifier over the date, the Tudor model omits this detail and sports a crown made of yellow gold instead. Both watches also boast gold indexes and watch hands. In the case of the Submariner, these are Mercedes hands and for the Tudor, the snowflake hand. Unlike the 116613LN, however, the Tudor's 41 mm case is only water-resistant to 200 metres and is available pre-owned for as little as €3,980.
