Many avid Rolex collectors can appreciate the intriguing history of a vintage transitional model. A stepping stone of sorts, transition models often retain features of both old and new models, such as the used Rolex Submariner 16800 that we have listed here today. Developed in 1978, this men's diver bridged the gap between the 4 and 5-digit references, bringing with it a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a new movement with an increased power reserve and 28,800 bph. While there are many Submariner references on the market to choose from, none offers as much character and history as the stainless steel reference 16800 that we have listed here today.

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.
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
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.
