Rolex Submariner ref 16800 Matte Dial circa 1982

$9,850.00

A fabulous looking early vintage Rolex Submariner ref# 16800 transitional model 7.2 million serial # circa 1982 with first generation matte black dial. This is the popular transitional model, an early sapphire crystal ref 16800, which follows the plastic crystal model 1680, and precedes the 16610 with modern style dial. This model features a sapphire crystal, and a quick set date ref 3035 movement. The transitional model offers the convenience and security of a more water resistant design, but retaining the popular vintage character of the early plastic crystal matte dial models.

This early 16800 is distinctive in that it features the first generation vintage style matte black Mk II  dial with tritium hands and hour markers. The luminous plots are without WG surrounds and the dial is matte, not glossy, like the next generation 16800 dial. The dial is properly marked 1000 foot depth rating. With black elapsed time bezel with nicely patina’d pearl. This is an especially great looking model with a very clean look. Just full serviced and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation.

Your purchase of this watch will be accompanied by one of our popular fine Italian glazed leather pouches, ideal for travel and storage, a $45 value.
