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.

Description was accurate, sales representative (Sarah) was helpful when comparing multiple timepieces, payment and shipment was quick and appraisal was provided promptly. Excellent experience with Bob's and adore the Rolex 16800. It's exactly what I was looking for.
I aquired an older vintage Rolex in a trade. It was going to cost a lot to refurb. Bob's offered a very fair trade in on a completely refurbed Submariner. I was very happy with service and the Submariner. A very positive experience and now the proud owner of a well running Rolex
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.
