What We Fancy

This second-generation two-tone Submariner is nicknamed the “Bluesy”, it’s obvious to see why. The first two-tone Submariner was introduced in 1984 and was replaced by this reference 16613 in 1988. This example is an earlier 16613 and has the classic modern traits with vintage characteristics. Everything we love in Neo-Vintage. For a great write-up on the two-tone Submariner, click here.
