Description: Matte dial 16800’s are a rare bird when it comes to Neo-Vintage Submariners. Made only for a few years before Rolex transitioned to the white gold surround dials that they still use to this day. It is a perfect blend of the matte dials that we are familiar of from the 4 digit submariners but it takes one step towards modern Rolex with the sapphire crystal. This particular 16800 is has an amazing insert that has faded into a navy blue over the years. The case is thick and even and has been lightly polished in the past. The hands have been color matched while the dial is original and has a pleasant yellow lume. The watch is complete with box and papers and booklet. The serial is towards the end of 1983 and the beginning of 1984 so it could be either year.
