What our customers are saying

Basic Info

Additional information


Greetings from Prestige Watches UK. We are a 5-star seller on both Chrono24 and Trustpilot with hundreds of watches sold.


Presenting a stunning Rolex Submariner reference: 16610. This watch was born in 2002 with the papers registering the sale in 2003.  It is a ‘Y’ serial.

The watch is in strong condition – with the only real point to mention being a small chip in the crystal towards the 6 o’clock position.

It is complete with its box, hang tags, booklets, papers, spare link, and even the case-back sticker.

The watch is perfect working order (serviced in 2018) and looks fantastic.

It has a nice vintage feel to it but still maintains the solidity of a modern luxury sports watch – the very best of both worlds.


Quick message from the seller.


“Here at Prestige Watches UK we believe a watch is far more than just a simple teller of time. It is a real-life companion that will emote feelings of happiness and joy through your life journey.

It is a mechanical life form that has spirit and personality and will inspire, motivate and generate positive energy from within.

If one day gifted to that special ‘someone’, a treasured watch will pass sentiment and meaning to the hands of others like few other gifts can achieve”


Our mission here at Prestige Watches is to spread ‘Watch Happiness’ around the world and promote the feelings of joy that come with buying a new watch.


This watch is an icon of its age where you can enjoy the best of both worlds – a tank tuff sports watch coupled with the luxury of the Rolex brand – because disguised over a military grade, utility tool watch, you have a classic, great looking gentleman’s watch.


This sought after, long-discontinued watch is for the successful adventurer and is certainly an in-demand collector’s item.


Rolex designed and developed the Submariner in 1953 and was introduced to the world at Basel Watch Fair 1954.

The 16610 was first introduced in 1989 and discontinued in 2010 and many collectors prefer the dimensions of the 16610 to the newer sized models in terms of proportions and appearance. 

This watch is considered to be more ‘wearable’ than the “super case” and new 41mm releases.


This watch is pre ‘super case’, has a slimmer profile and with the collector’s favourite aluminium bezel which is highly sought after, and it also has the drilled lugs for easy strap swaps and that cool ‘too-watch’ feature.

This transitional model is one of the last of its kind as these holes were removed from the range following year (Z series).


 This stainless steel Submariner considered by many devotees as ‘the last of the best’ as it was in 2008 when Rolex rolled out the Super Case to its Submariner range and the slimline model because a sought after thing of desire.


This watch should be your choice if you have a great love and enjoyment of both luxury and adventure. 


Black tie or No tie.

Business suit or Bathing suit.

Ocean dive or Desk dive.

Mountain range or Golf range.

Board room or Living room.

Bath tub or down the pub…


If you are after a genuinely dual-purpose watch, this is the ultimate hybrid.


Picture this scenario….  You are adventuring outdoors in the woods, mountains or beach and need something tank tuff, robust and solid. When finished you want to shower off and get in your smart/casual attire and head to the office or city centre, ready to go without having to worry about a watch change.


This watch exudes the perfect balance of love for adventure and luxury.


This ‘do it all’ watch is a perfect balance of formal watch charm with tool-watch roots and could, potentially be your ONLY watch.
