Rolex Submariner 168000 

By Paul Altieri

The Rolex Submariner reference 168000 was only produced for a short time in 1989.  Its predecessor, reference 16800 is often referred to as a transitional model and is credited with introducing the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and high beat calibre 3035 self-winding movement to the Submariner collection.  These features are maintained in the reference 168000 with the only difference being the addition of a stronger, more resilient 904L stainless steel used throughout the 40mm Oyster case, Oyster bracelet, and Oysterlock clasp.  The reference 168000 is an important piece of the Submariner history.  The Submariner that is offered here today boasts resistance to depths of up to 1,000 feet, a strong 3-piece case with a Triplock screw-down crown, a black unidirectional bezel, and a matching black dial with luminous hour markers and Mercedes hands, creating the ultimate divers watch.

    Nice service but bad watch

    Since this is my first time purchasing a vintage Rolex, I've got to find a shop with good reputation. Bob's Watches is one of them. I was impressed by the quick response on my enquiry about the serial number on the bracelet. I was able to spot out a year produced in my birth year, so I made up my mind quickly. The delivery was also impressively fast.

    Regarding BOB’s WATCHES / *** When purchasing an item that is as expensive as a high quality pre owned ROLEX, you’d only hope for a great experience and great service....  when dealing with BOB’s WATCHES and specifically with *** in the Service/Sales Department, you will receive not only a GREAT EXPERIENCE and GREAT SERVICE, but a truly professional and yet personal connection in which you will treated with the high quality luxury sales & service you’d expect. After my 3rd ROLEX purchase from BOB’s WATCHES, I can truly say I am VERY thankful that I made all of my purchases with ***!!!!    Thank you, ***

    I have made several purchases and one sales through Bob’s. The order process, payment, processing, and most importantly delivery have all been absolutely flawless. Very quick and efficient. I never look anywhere else for used Rolex.
