This Rolex Submariner Date 16613 Panama Canal Limited Edition Watch commemorative watch is to commemorate the return of the Panama Canal system made by the face plate with the Panama Canal totem, while the back is engraved with a limited number of numbers, only 75 (mixed with stainless steel Ref .16610 and 18K semi-gold models Ref.16613). Regardless of the Panama Canal political strife or power of oppression, Rolex’s marketing can be said to be ubiquitous. Its clever place, it is interesting to repeat. Rolex has used to be marketing international events such as POW Cosmograph and Pamama Canal; sports such as Daytona 24, America’s Cup and the Masters; adventure activities such as crossing the Dover Strait, climbing Mount Everest; research organizations such as COMEX and The US military; and the combination of different industries such as and, Cartier, Eaton, Coca Cola and PanAM cooperation.
The Panama Canal, located in the middle of the American continent, runs through the Isthmus of Panama and is a ship-lock canal that connects the Pacific and the Atlantic. Canal full-length 81.3 km, the narrowest at 152 meters, the widest at 304 meters. The United States signed the Treaty of Panama Canal in 1903 and obtained the right to dig a canal and to “permanently use, occupy and control” the Canal and the Canal Zone. On 15 August 1914, the Panama Canal was officially opened. The opening of the canal reduced the East-West coast of the Americas by 7,000 to 8,000 nautical miles, and the range between Asia and Europe by 4,000 to 5,000 nautical miles. The opening of the Panama Canal has greatly contributed to the development of the world’s maritime industry.
The Panama Canal is known as the “world bridge”. But the United States turned the canal district into a real colony, appointed governors in the Canal District, imposed US law, and established the Southern Command of the United States, with tens of thousands of troops stationed in the Canal Zone. In September 1977, the United States and Panama signed a new treaty on the Panama Canal and a treaty on the permanent neutrality and operation of the Panama Canal. Since December 31, 1999, the United States officially ended its colonial rule in Central and South America.http://www.watchesline.co/
