The Rolex 16800 Submariner was seen as a transitional model that fell between the long running Rolex 1680 and Rolex 16610 models and introduced a number of new developments.
Firsts for this Submariner were a new calibre COSC quick date movement, sapphire crystal, gloss dial with white gold surrounds and increased depth rating to 1000ft.
Dial & Hands: Excellent gloss dial that has faded to a dark grey/charcoal colour and looks matte. Matching creamy tritium hands and hour plots.
Case & Caseback: 9.4m serial sold in August 1986 with all numbers clear between the lugs. Rolex caseback is correctly stamped 16800. Thick case that has had a previous light polish by Rolex so is in good condition. Mark free bezel insert that has also faded to lovely dark grey/charcoal with matching tritium pip/pearl that has small crack in it.
Bracelet: Very good correctly dated Rolex 93150 oyster bracelet with only a very little stretch.
Movement: Original Rolex serviced 3035 movement in very good condition.
Box & Papers: This watch has everything see above! A real collectors piece.
Price: £4250 or nearest offer. Shipping at cost. May consider trades.
