Description

The Rolex Submariner is one of the most iconic timepieces made, by any watch manufacturer, ever. Designed as a sports/dive watch, it’s classic styling remains the model for many modern watches in production today. The 16800 was one of the first Submariners to receive a sapphire crystal and a 300m water depth rating.

The History:

Rolex brands need no introduction. Founded in 1905 by Hans Wilsdorf and his brother-in-law, Alfred Davis, these visionary men set out to do what had not been successfully and reliably done before. Build a timepiece to be worn on the wrist, that was both highly reliable, functional, and durable, as well as stylish. Wilsdorf’s dream was to create a watch that could accompany its owner through all facets of life and withstand any environment. His innovative approach and high standards for quality re-shaped the watch industry as a whole. It has made the Rolex name synonymous with quality, innovation, and elegance.

The Watch:

The Rolex Submariner 16800 has a 40mm stainless steel case, with sapphire crystal. It features the Caliber 3035 movement and applied 18K white gold indices and hands filled with tritium lume.

The Details:

This piece dates to a 1984 production year, which was the first year that the white gold surrounds on the hour markers, as well as the sapphire crystal were introduced on a Submariner. The case is in excellent condition, while the bezel has scratches and wear, visible in photos. The pearl is still present on the bezel. The gloss dial has developed a matte patina with some color change around the hour markers. The lume on the hands, as well as the hour markers, is still present.
