The Rolex Submariner reference 16800 is an important transitional model. Not only was it responsible for introducing the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal to the Submariner line, but it was also the first Rolex diver's watch to utilize a high-beat movement. While some collectors may gravitate towards newer, similar looking Submariner references, there's nothing like the Rolex 16800. An integral piece of Rolex Submariner history, you will be proud to share the story behind this ref. 16800 with everyone you meet. Its style is functional and easy to wear, featuring a 40mm waterproof Oyster case with a black unidirectional bezel and matching dial. Some references can be found with either a matte or glossy dial and are always topped with the Submariner's signature luminous hour markers and Mercedes hands. A steel Oyster bracelet and Oysterlock clasp complete the masculine style of this Rolex sports reference.

Pros: 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.
Cons: Nothing I can think of... The only thing I would mention is that a potential website redesign may be needed to refine Bob's Watches overall image.
