Rolex Submariner 16800 w/Striking Patina - *Unpolished*
- Unit price
The Rolex Submariner is a line of sports watches that was first introduced by Rolex in 1953. The Submariner is notable for being one of the first watches specifically designed for diving and its unidirectional rotating bezel that can be used to track dive times. Beyond its technical capabilities, the Submariner has become an icon in the world of watches, with a timeless design that has remained largely unchanged since its introduction. It is widely regarded as one of the most important and influential watches of all time, and has become a symbol of Rolex's reputation for quality, durability, and precision. The Sub has been worn by everyone from professional divers and military personnel to Hollywood celebrities and heads of state, cementing its place in the pantheon of iconic watches.
This example reference 16800 is circa 1986 and comes from the first few years of "WGS" or "white gold surrounds" dial production when Rolex had transitioned out of the matte dial variants. The same goes for the introduction of the sapphire crystal into this reference. For those looking for a unique blend of vintage aesthetics and modern practicality, we believe the 16800 to be the perfect candidate for that combination. Between the beautifully aged dial, hands and unpolished case/bracelet, this piece is sure to have even the most experienced collectors swooning.
