By Paul Altieri
During the 1970s and 1980s, the Submariner line saw many important upgrades, including the addition of a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, a unidirectional time-lapse bezel, and increased waterproofness of up to 300 meters. The ref. 16808 is an earlier model yellow gold Submariner that was produced some time in the late 1980s and boasts all of these upgrades in addition to a calibre 3035 perpetual movement, a 40mm Oyster case, and a flat-link Oyster bracelet. Satin and polished 18 karat yellow gold contrast nicely with the blue aluminum bezel and dial, the latter of which is very desirable for its use of yellow gold nipple hour markers, Tritium luminous material, and Mercedes hands. The dial and bracelet show some signs of wear that are consistent with an older preowned Rolex watch and give it immense character.
