This Vintage Rolex watch is in overall excellent condition with light wear to the case and bezel and slight stretch to the bracelet consistent to age.
The transitional Submariner ref. 16800 was introduced after the 1680 and is responsible for bringing many important upgrades to the line, including the calibre 3035 self-winding movement with a higher beat of 28,800 bph, a tougher scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and an increased resistance to depths of up to 300 meters/1,000 feet. Similar to many vintage timepieces on the preowned Rolex market, there are many variations of the ref. 16800 to be found that range in degrees of aging and feature set options. The Submariner that you see here today displays the time on a very desirable matte black dial with applied luminous markers and hands filled with Tritium patina lume. The bezel exhibits some signs of wear that are common with an older Rolex, and the pearl that sits at the starting position has since aged to a striking creamy hue.

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.
