A notable addition to the Submariner family, the reference 16800 was the first model to include a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and an increased depth resistance of up to 1,000 feet. Featuring a classic dive watch design, this reference is equipped with a 40mm Oyster case outfitted with a 60-minute timing bezel, matching black dial with luminous hour markers and sweeping "Mercedes" hands, and a waterproof screw-down crown. The bezel is a focal point of this timepiece with a unidirectional design that will allow the diver to measure increments of time while in the water, safely and reliably. That feature, paired with the increased water resistance and highly functional dial, creates the ideal tool-watch for underwater adventures. Rolex pairs the case with a stainless steel Oyster bracelet with flat links and a folding Oysterlock clasp for a secure and comfortable fit that is second to none.

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.
