Both watches measure 40mm in diameter with depth ratings of 300 meters; both watches are made from 904L stainless steel with solid-link Oyster bracelets; both watches feature black dials with 18-karat, white gold hands and hour markers; and both watches are fitted with black ceramic bezel inserts.

The reference 114060 has a brand-new, retail price of $7,500 while the reference 116610 retails for $8,550. Where they differ, is that the reference 116610 has the addition of a date complication, which is displayed through a window in the dial at the 3 o’clock position.

Due to the addition of the date feature, the movement in the reference 116610 is different than the one found in the reference 114060 (no-date) Submariner. The reference 116610 is powered by the time-tested calibre 3135 movement, while the no-date Submariner is fitted with Rolex’s calibre 3130. Both movements are COSC chronometer-certified, and feature Parachrom hairsprings for greater shock and temperature resistance.

To enhance the visibility of the date window, the crystal on the reference 116610 features a “Cyclops” magnification bubble at the 3 o’clock position. The Rolex Replica Watch Cyclops protrudes slightly from the surface of the sapphire crystal, and enhances the date display by 2.5 times its natural size. In addition to magnifying the date aperture, the Cyclops is also one of the most distinct and recognizable of Rolex’s features.

Past generations of no-date Submariners differed from their date-displaying counterparts in that their movements were not COSC rated. However, since both the calibre 3135 and the calibre 3130 are chronometer-certified, the difference in performance should be virtually non-existent.

Some will select the reference 116610 for the utility of the date function, while others may pick it because they enjoy the visual appearance that the Cyclops adds to the face of the watch. Other buyers will opt for the reference 114060 Submariner due to its lower price, while some may select it because they prefer the symmetrical design of its dial.
