By Paul Altieri
The dual-tone Rolex Submariner was introduced in the 1980s and pairs 18 karat yellow gold with stainless steel. Versatile and more affordable than the all-gold variations, the steel and gold Sub has since become the grail watch of many. The ref. 16803 was one of the first in the brand's catalog to offer the popular finish and is often found with either a black or blue dial and bezel set. The ref. 16803 also came to market during a very pivotal time in the Submariner history and was one of the first references, besides the stainless steel ref. 16800, to offer an increased depth rating of up to 300 meters, a calibre 3035 perpetual movement, and a unidirectional timing bezel. If you're in the market for a preowned Rolex with exceptional character and history, the ref. 16803 may be the perfect watch for your wrist.

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.
