The Rolex Triple Zero Submariner ref. 168000 was produced for an incredibly short time, from 1988 to 1989. Its production marked the transition of the Submariner line from 316L stainless steel to 904L stainless steel and is also notable for retaining the calibre 3035 perpetual movement. Its feature set is often characterized by a glossy dial topped with Tritium luminous hour markers and Mercedes hands in metal surrounds. The particular preowned Rolex that is presented here today also features an "open six" date wheel. Incredibly rare, the ref. 168000 price is only expected to continue to rise, making it a striking collector's item as well as a smart investment piece.

Good delivery Excellent quslity
Since this is my first time purchasing a vintage Rolex, I've got to find a shop with good reputation. Bob's Watches is one of them. I was impressed by the quick response on my enquiry about the serial number on the bracelet. I was able to spot out a year produced in my birth year, so I made up my mind quickly. The delivery was also impressively fast.
