When Rolex released reference 16800 in 1979, it introduced a list of impressive updated functions to the Submariner family. One of the most notable improvements is the redesign of the mighty Oyster case to include a resistance to greater depths of up to 300 meters. This is allowed professional divers to take their watches deeper than ever before. The new and improved case also received a stronger, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a unidirectional bezel. The redesign of the bezel is especially important to the history of the Submariner because it won't accidentally slip backwards while in the water, thus providing a safer and more reliable reading. This rich history behind reference 16800 and its classic design make this watch an ideal addition to any sports watch collection.

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.
