Many collectors are split on which Submariner reference introduced the line to a two-tone steel and gold finish. One thing is for certain, it was sometime in the early 1980's. During this time, the line also received several other important upgrades, such as a unidirectional time-lapse bezel, an increased depth rating, a then-new calibre 3035 perpetual movement, and a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Horologically, the ref. 16803 is a fascinating timepiece that brings with it an immense history. Any luxury watch connoisseur will enjoy discussing the details that accompany this particular secondhand Rolex. The ref. 16803 also pairs the two-tone finish with a black dial and bezel, creating a statement piece that even James Bond would be proud to wear.
