1985 Rolex 16800 Submariner Faded Blue Insert

Regular price $11,100.00

Description: This 16800 is a the perfect daily neo-vintage submariner. The 16800 follows after the plexiglass 1680 and was offered in both a matte dial finish (transitional) and a glossy (white gold surround) dial variant that introduced white gold rings to surround the luminous plots. This gloss dial variant uses tritium and has aged into a beautiful golden yellow that is complimented by the faded black insert that has now aged to a slate blue. The case appears lightly polished and is thick and even throughout the watch. These 16800 although still affordable in the world of vintage Rolex, are beginning to climb along with anything else that is in this type of collector’s condition.
