Vintage Rolex Submariner 16800 Black dial

By Paul Altieri

The transitional Submariner ref. 16800 is responsible for introducing the line to numerous upgrades, including the calibre 3035 movement with a higher bph and better accuracy, a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and better waterproofness of up to 300 meters. While the ref. 16800 is the bridge to the modern Submariner as we know it today, it still features a design that is reminiscent of a vintage sports watch, making it very desirable among secondhand Rolex collectors in-the-know. The example that you see here today features a unidirectional timing bezel outfitted with an aluminum bezel insert, creamy Tritium luminous plots on the dial, and an older-style case and bracelet with tapered lugs and an Oysterlock clasp.

    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.

    Superb site and transaction, phenominal delivery time. Some slight confusion concerning the special discount at the time. I didn't receive it. No big deal I would not hesitate to purchase another rolex from Bob's ! ***

    The purchasing process was quick and easy once I finally made my selection. Bob’s customer service was excellent. All my questions and concerns were addressed to my satisfaction. But most important of all, my husband loves his new watch!

    Very happy with the purchase of my 16710 GMT Master. Communication was very good and transaction went smoothly. Buying a used Rolex can be risky at best, I chose Bob's based on their excellent reputation and the peace of mind that reputation afforded me.
