Rolex Submariner ref 16800 Transitional Model circa 1984

$9,500.00

A very attractive vintage Rolex Submariner ref 16800 transitional model, case serial # 8.6 million circa 1984. Featuring a 40mm case with sapphire crystal and unidirectional elapsed time bezel. With beefy lugs case, pleasing original gloss black dial with tritium luminous indexes and closely matching hands. The luminous on the dial has aged to a pleasing cream color, while the so called “pearl” in the elapsed time bezel has aged to a deeper tan color.

The 16800 is powered by caliber 3035 self winding movement with sweep seconds and quick set date. With correct 93150 heavy Oyster bracelet with deployment clasp. Recently fully serviced and pressure tested by one of our veteran Rolex trained watchmakers. Guaranteed genuine and offered with our 1 year warrantee of accurate time keeping and operation.

The ref. 16800 is only the second Submariner model to feature the date as a complication, following the intensely popular and sought after 1680. The main difference between the two references is the use of a sapphire crystal on the 16800. Even within the 16800 though there are two distinct eras, one being the matte dial carried over from the 1680, and the next being the glossy black dial like the one you see here. The glossy dials really tie the vintage look in with what is in the Rolex catalog today, creating in the 16800 the perfect wearable vintage Submariner.

Vintage Rolex & Pre-Owned Rolex Watches

There is no watch brand more associated with quality, prestige, luxury, success, and social status than Rolex. Founded in the UK in 1908 and soon relocated to Switzerland, Rolex is credited with countless technical advances in time keeping accuracy, the introduction in 1928 of the water and dust resistant “Oyster” case, and in 1933, the perfection of the self winding “Perpetual” movement. With sponsorship of sporting events as wide reaching as the America’s cup, to the Daytona 500, golf and tennis tournaments, and expeditions to the far reaches of the world, Rolex has always promoted it’s brand as an icon of success, achievement, and conquest. With popular “tool” watches such as the diver’s Submariner or Seadweller, the Aviator’s dual time zone GMT, the spelunker’s 24 hour Explorer, or the auto racer’s Daytona, Rolex has created loyal followings for the sports minded man. And the dressy Datejust and Presidential models, once the CEO’s trademark timepiece, are now much sought after by both men and woman as a luxury fashion statement. Whether vintage Rolex or more contemporary, your choice of a Rolex will always be a good choice.

All of our pre-owned Vintage Rolex watches are fully restored and guaranteed genuine to give you excellent service and piece of mind.
