About this watch

I consider this an opportunity not to be missed ,A Rolex Submariner from a reference only produced for 9 months in 1988/89.The reference 168000 marked the transitional period between the ref 16800 and the new 16610 with its newer movement and the improved 904L Stainless steel case not only a scarce reference but one not even mentioned in Rolex marketing material -the stuff of dreams for Rolex fanatics !

This example is a collectors dream and a great investment opportunity coming as a complete set with original inner and outer boxes, dated papers, Rolex calendar ,Rolex Submariner booklet and even the original Anchor.

The watch itself is absolutely unique ,the bezel has aged to a tropical bronze/brown colour which is a superb match for the honey lume ,again completely original ,These are watches that over time will all age uniquely and the dial on this example has already taken the highly prized matte finish

The case on this example is in fantastic original condition as is the full size bracelet 

Be quick I doubt this will be with me for long
