Rolex Submariner Ref. 16800 Matte Unpolished

Sale price$14,500.00 USD

Straight Facts

The Rolex submariner has to be the most iconic watch ever produced. Its influence spans from its role in the first film production of James Bond (starring Sean Connery with his “Big Crown” Submariner) to its input on practically every dive watch produced since its inception. The Ref. 16800 is special however as it is a transitional reference made for an extremely short production run and therefor have become some of the most collectible pieces on the market. This wonderful example is one of the best 16800’s I have ever seen. It features a mint and extremely vibrant matte dial with gorgeous lume, unpolished case with sharp and wide bevels and its beautiful original insert.

*Some marks or spots on the dial are reflections or dust on the crystal and are due to high intensity strobe lighting used while photographing. They are not actually on the watch or visible in natural lighting.

From Rolex & Patek Philippe, to Cartier & Audemars Piguet. As collectors first, we love the small details that separate the Submariner from Daytona and Calatrava from Royal Oak. This is why you'll find our curated assortment spans decades of generations of models and brands. We believe that watches don't just tell time, they tell history - and life is too short to wear a boring watch.
