Vintage Rolex Submariner 16800

By Paul Altieri

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.

    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

    Smooth and fast transaction, love the watch and saved $1800 over new on a watch less than a year old!

    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.
