The Rolex Submariner reference 16803 is also referred to as a transitional model. This men's diver introduced the Submariner line to the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, a feature that we have a hard time imagining the Submariner without. This particular reference was also only produced for a short period of time in the 1980's, making it a highly sought-after collector's item. The Rolex 16803 was also one of the first diver's watches to offer a two-tone steel and yellow gold finish. Other features include classic Submariner additions, such as a 40mm waterproof Oyster case that's waterproof up to 1,000 feet, a unidirectional timing bezel with 60-minute increments, and a dial topped with lume. A flat-link Oyster bracelet adds the finishing touch and holds secure via a folding Oysterlock clasp.
