The first Rolex Submariner came to market in the 1950s and was initially only offered in a stainless steel finish. A few decades later, in the 1980s, Rolex added a two-tone option to their line of professional dive watches, creating a luxurious variation of the Submariner that would appeal to those with a mid-level budget. This addition came during a time when gold Rolex watches were among the most coveted timepieces in the world. The ref. 16803 pairs the two-tone finish with a masculine black dial and bezel, creating a versatile feature set that is comfortable both on land and while at sea. As an older-model preowned Rolex, the ref. 16803 also utilizes Tritium luminous material on the dial.

My purchase was very easy. And that means a lot I had a horrible experience purchasing from a competitor. My representative for Bobs was very helpful and my watch was delivered promptly.
Love my new watch. Couldn't be happier with this Rolex watch.
Matched pictures as advertised. Delivered on time. This was my Third purchase from Bob’s, a Date Just and Date Just mid-size for my wife, maybe a year ago, same great experience then, and knowing us, we’ll be back for more.
