This model is considered one of the best vintage Rolex watches for the money. This is because the 16800 is a durable model, offering new advances such as a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. Not all vintage Submariner models are durable enough to be worn every day or under strenuous circumstances, such as underwater cave diving. However, this watch was the first Submariner sports model to increase its water resistance up to 1000 feet. Inside its brushed and polished three-part case, the watch utilizes a caliber 3035, 27-jewels movement. This durable yet visually pleasing watch displays a black matte dial with sweep center seconds and date display. Those who want the charm of a vintage watch yet the durability of a new Rolex can get the best of both worlds with a Rolex Submariner 16800.

Watch was in condition as pictured and described. Some major dents and scuffs on the bracelet/end-link were hidden well by the lighting but were very noticeable in person. Overall the watch was in great shape for the age.
The watch is in great condition and comes with box and papers and was priced well.
First time investing in a timepiece. Go forward without fear,doubt or stress. No regrets cant wait to do it again!!! Watch created in my birth year!! Arrived on my bday. Perfect customer service, Thank-you Stacy!!!!!
I’ve bought multiple modern pieces from Bob’s and had a great experience every time. I’ve been looking to buy a birth year Rolex for awhile now and for me, that’s a late production run 16800. Couldn’t be happier with the watch and for those out there looking for a Sub, you should seriously consider the 16800. It has some great “modern” features, but holds true to a more vintage feel and elegance. Incredibly comfortable on the wrist and will undoubtedly continue to grow in value in my opinion. It’s a can’t miss buy all the way around.
Delighted to see that the watch was in excellent condition, just as described in the website.
Description was accurate, sales representative (Sarah) was helpful when comparing multiple timepieces, payment and shipment was quick and appraisal was provided promptly. Excellent experience with Bob's and adore the Rolex 16800. It's exactly what I was looking for.
I aquired an older vintage Rolex in a trade. It was going to cost a lot to refurb. Bob's offered a very fair trade in on a completely refurbed Submariner. I was very happy with service and the Submariner. A very positive experience and now the proud owner of a well running Rolex
Bob's provided excellent service even when calling them to see if my PayPal transaction had posted so I could receive my purchase the next day. I am certain that not every company's Accounting team would be so customer oriented and my experience certified that I would go nowhere else for my vintage Rolex watches.
The is as expected for a 30 year old Rolex, came with box and papers. Super fast shipping.
I purchased this black Submariner for my son as a graduation gift. It is a classic watch, great to use in a new profession or for leisure activities. My son loves it and wears it daily. Thanks, Bobs!
This is one of those watches I think every collector needs. It's not too flashy, good for everyday wear and it's a Rolex (need I say more). Very happy with my purchase.
