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.

My purchase was very easy. And that means a lot I had a horrible experience purchasing from a competitor. My representative for Bobs was very helpful and my watch was delivered promptly.
Love my new watch. Couldn't be happier with this Rolex watch.
Matched pictures as advertised. Delivered on time. This was my Third purchase from Bob’s, a Date Just and Date Just mid-size for my wife, maybe a year ago, same great experience then, and knowing us, we’ll be back for more.
