Background of frills' shot is blurry, but those moms do seem to have potential

Thanks Dino, that is a good point and I realize that. Obviously certain patina is half the charm of these items, but as you said, totally destroyed dials might need some touch up.

You've never seen the public react to Frilly walking into a station wearing nothing but a Rolex Submariner and green Corthay shoes.  Imagine a Godzilla movie where the big lizard is a smiling Asian bodybuilder with a PhD, a watch habit and a tendency to exhibitionism.  Terrifying, apparently.

Looking to nab my first Rolex and have narrowed it down to the Submariner.  I'm not opposed to buying used, which is why I wanted to see what you guys thought a good price for a 16610 model should be going for, specifically one in the early 2000's.  There are a few new 116610 selling for under $7k, but I would like a feeler on the older version, the 16610.

And on that note - summer attire the other day.

Enabler pic. DATE OR NO DATE?!?

^ so sexy!  I was thinking date as it is more "rolex iconic" than a no date, but that is just my opinion.  I am going to compare the two models today at a local reseller, Bernard Watch Co, so I hope to get a better idea as to what not only fits better, but the changes that were made for the 116610 model.   A used 16610 is a few thousand dollars less than a new/like new 116610 so it might be best to start out with a 16610 and save for other watches/shoes :)

Golfinz, I would keep checking watch recon, they certainly seem to hover around 4500-5k.

Here's a recent.

The late model 16610 are great watches. I think you will be quite pleased. The date/no date thing is personal preference. Don't bother with what anyone else says. The only thing you need to consider with the 14060M is the bracelet. It is different than the sub date of the same vintage and does put some people off by it's tendency to rattle and feel light. It threw me off as this was the first Rolex I handled. I later learned to love that bracelet, but just be prepared the first time you handle one.

Good luck!

Thanks for the heads up!  I tried on a new 116610 at an AD this past weekend and loved the weight.  Are you talking about the SEL vs non SEL models?  Or is the bracelet, other than the end links, different when comparing vintages?  If the entire bracelet is different/heavier in the 116610, can the bracelet of the 116610 be put on a 16610?
