Rolex Submariner ref# 168000 Transitional Model circa 1986

SOLD

A beatifully patina’d example transitional model Rolex Submariner ref# 168000, 9.3 million serial number circa 1986. Featuring a sapphire crystal, quick set caliber 3035 movement, and unidirectional elapsed time bezel. Also with glossy black SWISS-T<25 dial, with tritium white gold surrounded markers and tritium hands. The tritium markers have aged to a beautiful cream color, while the hands are still slightly lighter.

The 40mm stainless steel case comes to us completely unpolished. It shows a life lived to be sure, but still sports extremely thick chamfers and a tight bracelet.

The 168000 model is a 1 year only production model in 1986 and 1987 introducing the higher grade 904 stainless steel alloy, replacing the prior 316 grade alloy. The case is the same as the soon to be introduced 16610, but with the 168000 designation, and still utilizing the 3035 movement of the 16800.

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