Pre-OWned Watch condition Examination

This used Rolex watch is in overall excellent pre-owned condition with just slight stretch in the bracelet consistent with age.

Pre-Owned Rolex Submariner 16808

By Paul Altieri

One of the earliest all-gold Submariner dive watches was the ref. 16808. In addition to offering a desirable satin and polished yellow gold finish, this reference also boasts a contrasting blue aluminum bezel insert and a matching blue tropical dial that has aged to a deeper hue over time. The dial is also topped with rarer yellow gold nipple hour markers and Mercedes hands that are filled with lume in a warm patina. The case maintains a traditional 40mm diameter and wears on a three-link Oyster bracelet secured by a folding Oysterlock clasp. While the Submariner was initially waterproof up to 300 meters, some of that resistance may have been lost over time, making this particular preowned Rolex a suitable statement piece for special occasions and moderate wear.
