Rolex Submariner ref 16800 Mk III Dial circa 1983

$9,500.00

A fabulous looking early vintage Rolex Submariner ref# 16800 transitional model 8.0 million serial # circa 1983 with matte black dial, tritium hands, and hour markers and just a slightly ghosted blue elapsed time bezel. This is an especially great looking model with a very clean look. With sharp lugs, unpolished case in wonderful shape for a 30+ year old, well loved tool watch. Worn on a stainless steel Oyster 93150 bracelet, still with all of it’s links.

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. Just full serviced and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation.
