This solid 18ct white gold 116619LB Submariner Date with gorgeous ocean blue dial and matching blue cerachrom bezel, is affectionately known as “The Smurf’. Hugely sought-after and rarely offered for sale our watch is in superb condition and complete with its original Rolex box,  warranty card and booklets. This precious metal Submariner is fitted to an 18ct white gold Oyster Fliplock bracelet with extremely comfortable Glidelock clasp, and is waterproof to 300m.

The Rolex Smurf is something of an anomaly in the Rolex line-up. Although it doesn’t mark any special occasion, it did introduce some major updates to the Submariner collection. Including the new (at the time) Cerachrom ceramic bezel. It is the only Submariner offered in white gold. And the only one to feature this color combination. Launched in 2008 with the yellow gold Ref 116618, it came as something of a surprise to collectors. As the first white gold Submariner, the Rolex Smurf was always going to turn heads. But this isn’t any old white gold. It’s 18K Rolex white gold. Forged in Rolex’s own exclusive foundry. Using only the purest base metals that pass the brand’s stringent quality standards. Rolex white gold is often referred to as “Grey Gold” due to its darker appearance. The difference is immediately obvious when you put it next to a steel watch. This is hard-wearing gold that does not need re-plating. You can feel the quality (and the weight!) when you have it in your hands. Or better still, on your wrist.
