Rolex Submariner 16808 Full Set


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 black bezel inlay and a matte black dial that, together with the gold text and 18k yellow-gold Nipple index, provide the watch with such a cool vintage look. Together with the 16800 this was the first Submariner 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 pristine condition! The fact that this professional tool watch is completely from gold instantly provides it with an upscale, luxury look. The watch dates back to ’81, houses the calibre 3035 and comes as a full set with all service history and even the original receipt!
