By Paul Altieri
One of the first two-tone Submariner dive watches was the ref. 16803. Widely sought-after both for its affordable price point (in regards to a gold Rolex watch) as well as its versatile style, the ref. 16803 is an excellent option to consider for your next preowned Rolex investment. The two-tone finish is often paired with a striking blue bezel and dial, similar to the ref. 16803 that is presented here today. This reference also features Tritium luminous hour markers that have faded to a warm patina and central Mercedes hands. The 168xx series of Submariner watches were also the first in the line to offer a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal as well as a higher beat calibre 3035 perpetual movement and a depth rating of up to 300 meters, making it a fascinating addition to any collection.

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.
