Watch: Rolex Submariner Date 16800 Transitional Model
Stock Number: CHW4227
Price: £9250.00

*This watch has just passed through our workshop and is in excellent working order, we have chosen to not polish the watch and leave as original as possible, parts can be changed and the watch can be polished but only after being purchased as we still its value best kept as it is*

This transitional model Rolex Submariner Date is dated from 1982 by the serial number which makes it one of the first Rolex Sports Models to be fitted with sapphire crystal along with the new 3035 movement. This was also the first Submariner to be able to get to depths of 1000ft.

There was only a few very years that Rolex produced this model with the black Matte dial (Swiss T-25) with later models having a black glossy dial which is what makes this watch collectable to and rare.

This particular watch we believe has the original dial and hands in place however it does show evidence of moisture having got to the dial at some point and that in turn has made the hour markers go a yellow / brown colour giving it a lovely Patina and the hands showing some discolouration. Mechanically the watch is in excellent working order and we provide a 12 month guarantee to this effect.

40mm stainless steel case fitted to stainless steel Rolex Oyster bracelet with folding clasp. The black rotating bezel has a chip under the pip which can be replaced but likewise with the dial we have chosen to leave original. Operating from a 3035 calibre movement this automatic watch has a power reserve of up to 48 hours.
