Rolex Submariner ref# 16800 circa 1986 Box & Papers

$10,950.00

A great looking richly patina’d transitional model Rolex Submariner ref# 16800 with original inner and outer box and original Rolex warrantee papers. 9.6 million serial number, circa 1986, the last year of the 16800 reference. Featuring a no magnifier sapphire crystal, quick set caliber 3035 movement, and unidirectional elapsed time bezel with some slight scratches around the 55 hash mark. Featuring a beautiful glossy black SWISS-T<25 dial with white gold luminous surrounds, patina’d tritium indexes and matching tritium hands.

While the dial is stunning, the real standout to us is the unpolished condition of the 40mm stainless steel case. With strong crown guards and sharply beveled lugs, this 16800 was absolutely worn and enjoyed, but the care was taken to ensure the Rolex factory finishing lived on. With 1986 dated heavy Oyster bracelet with deployment flip lock clasp. Complete with original inner and outer box and Rolex warrantee papers. Outer box also bears original large sticker for 16800 case reference #.

Recently fully serviced and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation.

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.
