The "Triple Zero" Submariner reference, despite that fact that is was given a 6-digit reference number, is actually a vintage watch. Rolex produced the ref. 168000 for a short time in the 1980's and used it as a transitional model to introduce the Submariner line to 904L stainless steel. Shortly after, the Submariner line would also be given a sapphire crystal and an upgraded movement. The men's sports watch that is for sale here today boasts a style similar to any other Submariner watch with the addition of a 40mm stainless steel Oyster case, a three-link Oyster bracelet secured by an Oysterlock clasp, a dial topped with luminous markers and Mercedes hands, and a unidirectional bezel. Rich in history and full of classic Rolex design, you will be proud to display this timepiece on your wrist.

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.
