Rolex released the Submariner ref. 16800 in 1979, bringing with it a few important upgrades to the line. The case was now waterproof up to 300 meters, or 1,000 feet, a depth rating that the model maintains to this day. The case also received a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and was one of the first Rolex dive watches to feature a unidirectional time-lapse bezel as well as a calibre 3035 perpetual movement. As a transitional model bridging the gap between 4-digit and 5-digit Submariner models, the ref. 16800 is an incredibly important piece of the Submariner history. Anyone who seeks a fascinating vintage pre-owned Rolex with classic style and an interesting backstory will appreciate the ref. 16800.

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.
