Rolex Gold Submariner

The 16808 was launched 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 Luxo Time Firenze 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 and are surely unpolished.

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 '82, comes as a full set from the first owner from U.S.A market.
