Footnotes

  • With its distinctive bold blue dial and bezel, the white gold 116619LB has been fondly nicknamed the Smurf after the popular Belgian comic franchise. The Rolex Submariner Smurf features a cerachrom bezel and is the only Submariner to be offered in solid white gold.

    The Smurf 116619 was first offered in 2008 and was recently retired from the line up in 2020. It is being replaced by the 126619LB which features a black dial and blue bezel.
