Rolex Submariner 16800 ‘Matte Dial’

We are fortunate enough to present our dear customers a beautiful Rolex Submariner 16800!

The reference 16800 is the model that stood between the reference 1680 and 16610, and is therefore known as the transitional Submariner. This reference was introduced in 1978 and already discontinued a decade later. It’s considered as the Submariner with best of both worlds: the vintage matte dial with painted tritium indices and the modern sapphire crystal and updated caliber.

This piece dates back to 1983 and is powered by the caliber 3035. It has a beautifully aged tritium index with matching hands. Both in an eggshell-yellow colour. What we truly love about this example, is the copper coloured inlay of the bezel. This stainless steel watch has a case size of 40 millimeter and comes with its original Oyster bracelet.

This watch has the wearability and sturdiness of the modern Submariners paired with the character and aesthetics of a vintage one.
