Vintage Rolex Submariner 16800

By Paul Altieri

If you seek an intriguing transitional model, consider the vintage Rolex Submariner ref. 16800.  Developed in 1978, this variation of the brand's diver was responsible for introducing the Submariner line to the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, an increased depth rating of up to 1,000 feet or 300 meters, and a then-new calibre 3035 perpetual movement, which was also the first instance of a Quickset function within the line.  The pre-owned Rolex 16800 that is listed for sale here today presents the time on a desirable matte black dial with Tritium luminous hour markers and Mercedes hands.  The case remains in excellent condition, showing signs that is has been previously polished while also maintaining crisp serial and reference numbers.  The bezel has faded to some degree, which is to be expected of a watch of this age and only adds to its character.

    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.
