Transitional Rolex watches can be, at times, elusive making collecting them a sport in itself. Often produced for shorter periods of time and absolutely invaluable in the overall evolution of the Rolex brand itself, transitional models add rarity, character, and value to most luxury watch collections. The reference 16803 that is listed here today was produced for a short time between 1984 and 1988. This transitional Sub was one of the first Submariner's to offer a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal as well as a two-tone finish utilizing stainless steel and 18 karat yellow gold. It's common to find the two-tone finish paired with a blue unidirectional bezel as well as a blue dial topped with lume. This nautical style is at home both in the sea as well as at the office or dressed up for a night out on the town.
