The Tempus Machina Reference 216A is inspired by the iconic Rolex Submariner that was made famous by James Bond, both in the books and on the silver screen. The reference 6538 was first seen in Dr. No with its elegant lugs, graceful bevels, gilt dial, plexi dome crystal and of course the 8mm big crown. Tempus Muachina combined the best elements of the big crown Submariner of yesteryear with the contemporary materials of today. No expense was sparred as the reference 216A also uses the gilt dial of old and the bezel contains the famous red triangle at the 12 o’clock position. Other features include classic bevels and narrower lugs, a coin edge bezel, the taller dome structure of the plexi Superdomes and of course the big 8mm crown.
