This model is equipped with calibre 3135, a self-winding mechanical movement entirely developed and manufactured by Rolex. Like all Rolex Perpetual movements, the 3135 is a certified Swiss chronometer, a designation reserved for high-precision watches that have successfully passed the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC) tests. It is fitted with a Parachrom hairspring, offering greater resistance to shocks and to temperature variations. Its architecture, in common with all Oyster watch movements, makes it singularly reliable.

The Rolex Submariner Date 116618 was introduced at BaselWorld 2008 and was the first Submariner to be fitted with the new style case and ceramic bezel insert; the Rolesor and stainless steel versions would follow in subsequent years. The present model features a blue dial and insert; it is also available in black. Since 2013 the watch is outfitted with the present 'Sunburst' type dial.
