This 16800 is a perfect example of a fully transitional matte Sub, which gives it a distinctly vintage look without sacrificing the scratch-resistant sapphire. Needless to say, it's highly collectable. This particular piece, has a perfectly faded bezel, uniformly faded to a grey-blue hue. The matte dial is perfect; free of water damage, oil marks, spotting, or other age related decline, expected in a 30 plus year old watch. The tritium hands, lume plots, and bezel pip, have all aged to a brown-yellow colour.
The case is in fantastic shape; free of deep marks and gouges. It does not appear to have been polished too much over the years as is evidenced by the lugs still being thick. This watch has the correct 93150 Submariner Oyster bracelet with the correct 593 end links. Finding these watches in all original condition is becoming increasingly difficult, these matte dial models are highly sought after when found in their original condition especially when the dials are flawless.
This watch is in very good condition for its age. This watch comes with the original Rolex inner Box and outer box marked 16800, the original Rolex Certificate, the original Rolex Oyster Booklet, original Rolex Submariner booklet, Rolex Green leather Wallet with serial number, Rolex hang tag, Rolex Swimpruf tag with model number and serial number and Rolex translation booklet and the original Anchor. This is a true full set which is near to impossible to find and is therefore a collectors dream.This Rolex has undergone a thorough inspection of water resistance, accuracy, functionality and condition to determine the level of reconditioning required to meet our strict standards.
