By Paul Altieri
The first two-tone Submariner was released in the mid-1980s via ref. 16803. An integral piece of Rolex history, the ref. 16803 was also among the first Submariners, including the all-steel reference which came to market shortly before the 16803, to offer a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, a calibre 3035 perpetual movement, and an increased depth rating of up to 1,000 feet. The steel and gold finish is often paired with either a black or blue dial and bezel combination, with the preowned Rolex that is presented here today showcasing a very desirable black unidirectional bezel with gold graduations and a black dial topped with luminous hour markers and hands in gold surrounds. As an older model, the lume on the dial has since aged to very alluring patina, making this Submariner a popular choice among vintage collectors in-the-know.

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.
