Hi, am new to the group and new to Rolex. Santa bought me a new submariner date for xmas. I did borrow a sub for a few years in the military but this is the first i've ever owned. It is a thing of wonder and I understand now more about the fasination people have for Rolex.:D:D
My question is: - On the guarantee card the model no. is stated as 116233 and the seriel no starts with D. Now according to online info this should be a 2005 / 2006 Datejust. It is't it is a sub and brandnew from a registered Rolex dealer. I can understand it taking a while from manufacture to sale but the model no.??????:confused1::confused1:
I know this can be checked by removing bracelet, but before I ask the dealer about this just wondered if you guys had any thoughts.:):)

Your sub sounds like a 16610 and is not a Datejust. I would go back to the dealer and clear it up because it sounds like the cards got switched or something. Good luck!

BTW Share some pics if you can and welcome to the club

I agree - go back to the dealer and get this mixup straightened out.

Welcome to WTF and the Rolex Forum! Congrats on the Sub! :thumbup:

That was quick. Thanks guys.
The card says "Ref. montre 116233" I guess that is model type as it can't be a climbing reference ( I flunked french at school )
Anyway will check with the dealer and get back a pic or 2.
Thanks again and have a great weekend.
Regards Kevin

I believe "montre" is French for "watch," so that is certainly a model number.

Kevin, as everyone has said sounds like the AD got things mixed up. It happens sometimes. The watches and boxes are not sent as a package. Screw ups occur.

Congrats on a supurb watch!:thumbup:

Thanks for the info guys, from newbee.

You guys were right. :cool1: I went to the dealer to day and they had given me the wrong card. The watch maker checked and recorded the serial * which was of course also wrong on the guarantee card.
It will take some time for them to sort it out but a least the correct details are recorded if it were to get lost, damaged or stolen.
If I hadn't surfed into this site and associated links, this mistake may have gone unoticed for many years, so again many thanks.:001_smile:
will post a pic when I find out how to make them small enough to upload.:D:D:D

Glad you got that straightened out. As for pics, if you have any kind of photo editing software, you can resize your images with that. Or you can host the photos somewhere, and those sites usually allow you to select from several different sizes of whichever photos you upload.

Welcome to WTF and congrats on the Sub!

Kevin:

Here is how to post pics:

Mr. Houston's Quick and Easy way to post. Guaranteed Success!!

POSTING PICS

Posting pictures is very easy. Here's what you do -

1. Register with a picture host like photobucket.com
This is a free service for up to 1,000 images.

2. Once registered, use the choose or browse function on your photobucket homepage to locate the image you wish to post, from your hard drive

PLEASE REMEMBER to set the maximum size of the image
800 x 600 is best
Anything else would make viewing and accessing the page for users difficult.

3. Click SELECT and then UPLOAD

4. Once uploaded, simply copy the fourth option under each image on your photobucket homepage and paste it into the body of your text here. This fourth link is the Image Tag.

:001_smile:

Thank you Mr Houston

A pic of my new sub and my oldest SCUBA valve. The valve and I have retired but hope to pass the sub on in the family as nature takes it course.

Hey Kevin,

Any chance you can get your Military Sub back? You have any friends still in with theirs? Those are super collectible! Its probably worth calling around to your old friends.

Sorry about the delay replying, have been " walkabout". Thanks for the kind comments. :D
With regards to military subs, no it was too long ago and we just got issued a Sub or a Seamaster just by the luck of the draw and always had to return them when tour of duty was complete. I guess the MOD sold them at some point but I was not really interested in those days. Did get the chance to buy a Comex Sub when I worked for them but yes, you guessed it, I said no thank you I'll keep my Seiko. :sad:
It has taken me a long time to appreciate what Rolex is about ie a lot more more than just another piece of equipment. :thumbup1:
