The Rolex Submariner emerged in 1953 as the first watch that was designed specifically for professional divers. It caught the eye of watch enthusiasts around the globe with its depth resistance and sporty and functional styling. In true Rolex fashion, the next several decades were dedicated to perfecting the design behind the Submariner to provide the ultimate sports watch. In 1981, reference 16800 emerged on the scene with an updated caliber 3035 perpetual movement that was housed inside an Oyster case that had been redesigned to withstand depths of up to 1,000 feet. This transitional model also introduced a new uni-directional design to the 60-minute bezel, making it safer and more reliable to use while in the water. As with all submariners this sporty watch also features a distinctive dial set with luminous hands and hour markers.

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.
