The 16800 Rolex Submariner is a very rare and prized collector's item that was produced for a short time in the 1980s. Many enthusiasts refer to it as a transitional model as it was the first Submariner to include a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, a 300-meter depth rating, and a higher beat cal. 3035 movement. Today, many collectors seek the transitional Sub for its horological importance as well as for its stunning vintage feature set that often includes a desirable matte dial, creamy painted Tritium lume markers, and an older-style case and bracelet. You can add the 16800 to your collection today for a very competitive used Rolex price.

Description was accurate, sales representative (Sarah) was helpful when comparing multiple timepieces, payment and shipment was quick and appraisal was provided promptly. Excellent experience with Bob's and adore the Rolex 16800. It's exactly what I was looking for.
I aquired an older vintage Rolex in a trade. It was going to cost a lot to refurb. Bob's offered a very fair trade in on a completely refurbed Submariner. I was very happy with service and the Submariner. A very positive experience and now the proud owner of a well running Rolex
Bob's provided excellent service even when calling them to see if my PayPal transaction had posted so I could receive my purchase the next day. I am certain that not every company's Accounting team would be so customer oriented and my experience certified that I would go nowhere else for my vintage Rolex watches.
The is as expected for a 30 year old Rolex, came with box and papers. Super fast shipping.
This is one of those watches I think every collector needs. It's not too flashy, good for everyday wear and it's a Rolex (need I say more). Very happy with my purchase.
