The Submariner ref. 16800 is considered a transitional reference, bridging the gap between the references 1680 and 168000. The upgrades that it brought to the brand's line of diver's watches include a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, an increased waterproofness of up to 300 meters, and a calibre 3035 perpetual movement, complete with a Quickset feature. This particular used Rolex displays the time with Tritium luminous hour markers and Mercedes hands that have aged to a desirable eggshell patina, giving it incredible character. If you seek a vintage men's sports watch with a prominent position in the brand's history, the ref. 16800 may be an excellent reference to consider.

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.
