The modern Submariner as we know it today boasts a depth rating of up to 300 meters/1,000 feet, a high-beat Perpetual movement, and a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal over the case. These features weren't always commonplace and were added to the line in the early 1980s via the transitional ref. 16800 that you see here today. This reference was the first Submariner to offer increased waterproofness of up to 300 meters as well as a calibre 3035 movement that beats at a rate of 28,800 bph and a tougher scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. For many, the ref. 16800 marks the transition of the Submariner to the modern age of dive watches, making it a must-have for any vintage Rolex collection. The example that we have here today is in excellent preowned condition and features Tritium luminous plots that have aged to a gorgeous pale yellow hue.

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.
I purchased this black Submariner for my son as a graduation gift. It is a classic watch, great to use in a new profession or for leisure activities. My son loves it and wears it daily. Thanks, Bobs!
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.
