Rolex Submariner 16808

The 16808 was launched together with the 16800 in 1979.

The watch came in two different configurations; a blue bezel inlay with a blue dial and a black bezel inlay with a black dial. The example we have at Amsterdam Vintage Watches has a bluebezel inlay and a blue dial that, because of external factors like sunlight, has discoloured to purple. The gold text in combination with this dial provide the watch with such a cool vintage look. The 16800 and 16808 were the first Submariners with sapphire crystal instead of plexi crystal and therefore, we think this watch combines best of both worlds: vintage looks with modern qualities. The case, bezel and lugs are very sharp and scratch free. The 18k yellow-gold Oyster bracelet has no stretch and is in great condition! The fact that this professional tool watch is completely from gold instantly provides it with an upscale, luxury look. The watch houses the calibre 3035 and dates back to ’91.
