This is the Rolex 18k yellow gold Oyster Perpetual Submariner with the very desirable, limited production and now discontinued ‘Smurf’ Blue dial.
So called Smurf because this flat and matt style Blue dial with lilac undertones debuted on the original White Gold Submariner and was then migrated to the Yellow Gold Submariner.
Produced for only a few years (if that) on the yellow gold submariner, the Smurf dial was phased out on the yellow gold subs in favor or a new style blue ‘sunburst’ or seemingly translucent blue dial that had a habit of looking more purple than blue when it aged.
Smurf Dials are becoming more rare and harder to find. This is an M-series Smurf Submariner and looks as good as when it left the showroom at the authorized dealer
