PRE-OWNED WATCH CONDITION EXAMINATION

This Vintage Rolex Submariner is in overall great vintage condition with some wear to the case and bezel and slight stretch to the bracelet consistent to its age. 

Pre-Owned Rolex Submariner 16800

By Paul Altieri

The Submariner line debuted at Basel Watch Fair in 1954 and was the brand's first diver's tool watch. Its feature set included a stainless steel finish, a dial topped with a luminous display, a rotatable bezel, and a depth rating of up to 100 meters. Several upgrades have been made to the iconic diver in the several decades since coming to market, many of which were introduced with the transitional reference 16800 that is presented here today. The ref. 16800 was responsible for introducing the line to increased resistance of up to 300 meters or 1,000 feet, a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and a calibre 3035 perpetual movement. This particular timepiece also features a matte black dial topped with Tritium luminous hour markers and Mercedes hands in a warm patina.

    Post Purchase from Bob's

    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.

    A fair trade

    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

    Excellent Service & Quality Item

    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.

    Everything is fantastic, box, papers, warrenty, tags.... But the bracelet has been polished, while it said it didn't, and the watch itself has many more little and light scratches that I didn't expect, for me it's condition 2,not 1,as you said..... Not very happy about it..... Best regards. Jacopo anticoli

    This was the most seamless and transparent buying experience. I purchased the watch on a Monday night and received it on Wednesday morning. I cannot be more pleased with both the purchasing process and the outcome.
