Rolex Submariner 16800

The classic styling of the Submariner is instantly apparent in this impressive diving watch.  Between 1979 and 1981 reference 16800 brought with it a refined Oyster case with a screw-down crown that could withstand depths of up to 300 meters.  A scratch-resistant sapphire crystal was also added to the case, making it more durable and seamless.  The 16800 also introduced the 60-minute unidirectional bezel, a technology which had previously been patented and unavailable to Rolex watches.  The addition of the unidirectional bezel is an important one, as it prevents the bezel from slipping backwards while measuring diving times to provide a safe reading.  A notched bezel and large crown guard offer an easy grip with or without diving gloves, making this the ideal watch for professional and novice divers alike.  The hour makers and hands on this particular model are slightly discolored, adding to its appeal.

    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.
