Durable enough for underwater adventures or everyday wear, the Rolex Submariner is a versatile and stylish addition to any watch collection. Introduced in 1954 at the Basel Fair, the Submariner was unveiled as the perfect tool for professional divers. It boasted a large visible dial with easy-to-see hour markers and hands, a 60-minute timing bezel, and a sturdy waterproof Oyster case. Since that time, reference 16800 was introduced and brought with it several important updates to the Submariner family. First is the bezel that had been refined with a unidirectional design, offering a safer and more reliable reading. Also, the Oyster case had been updated to offer an increased water resistance of up to 300 meters, allowing the wearer to explore the ocean even further. Reference 16800 also received an updated calibre 3035 self-winding movement and a sleek, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. This watch's tritium hour markers and hands both have a gorgeous matching eggshell patina.

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.
