pre owned Rolex Submariner 16800

By Paul Altieri

The Rolex 16800 is a transitional Sub that was responsible for introducing the line to the sapphire crystal, an increased depth rating of up to 300 meters/1,000 feet, and a higher-beat calibre 3035 Perpetual movement. The ref. 16800 showcases a vintage aesthetic via an older-style case and bracelet and a matte black dial topped with painted luminous hour markers while also offering many modern amenities that are still in use today, such as the aforementioned upgrades and a unidirectional timing bezel. The secondhand example that you see here today features desirable Tritium plots, and all-steel finish, and a black dial/bezel set. If you're in the market for a notable vintage collector's item, the transitional Submariner ref. 16800 is an excellent option to consider.

    Overall great experience and product

    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.
