Basel Fair 1954 saw the introduction of the first Submariner diver's watch. Many upgrades have been made to the line over the past several decades, including the addition of a date aperture and a larger 40mm Oyster case in the 1960s. The ref. 16800 that debuted in 1983 is one of the most influential references in the line as it was responsible for introducing the Submariner to a better depth rating of up to 300 meters, a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and the calibre 3035 perpetual movement. Considered by many as a transitional model, the ref. 16800 is a highly sought-after variation of the Submariner. The preowned Rolex that you see here today also features Tritium luminous plots on the dial, a unidirectional bezel with an aluminum insert, and a flat-link Oyster bracelet secured by a folding Oysterlock clasp.

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.
