A few years after the Submariner was introduced in 1956, the reference 16800 made its debut and brought with it the addition of a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and an increased depth resistance of up to 1,000 feet. Both incredibly important additions to the Submariner family. Designed as a tool for professional divers, the Submariner reference 16800 also comes equipped with a 60-minute bezel with a unidirectional design that allows the wearer to safely measure increments of time while in the water. The bezel won't accidentally bump backwards, providing a highly reliable reading. Its notched edges provide an easy grip, even while in the water, making it easy to adjust. Rolex pairs the case with a matching black dial topped with contrasting luminous hour markers and sweeping hands and a brushed stainless steel Oyster bracelet with flat links and an Oysterlock clasp.

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.
