Hello WUS!

Sometimes we forget that the Rolex Submariner is the classic tool watch. This example has truly been used, with scars to show for it. Fantastic patina, a dial slowly turning tropical, and a whole lot of character.

This is an 8.4m serial Rolex Submariner reference 16800, dating it to 1984. The watch shows significant signs of wear on case, bezel, and bracelet. The pearl on the bezel has aged to a deep yellow color, while the dial and hands have aged accordingly to a creamy light patina. The minute hand, for some odd reason, is much darker than the dial plots, seconds and hour hands. The dial has started to show signs of turning tropical - I included a macro shot of this. It’s quite hard to see but willing to send a video to interested buyers. Service history is unknown but is keeping time. My Timegrapher app reports -0.5s/d.

Pricing this appropriately for anybody who appreciates a used vintage watch. If desired, it will need a lot of work, but I think this is a very robust tool watch with great patina and signs of age.

I’m asking $6,688 inclusive of shipping. I accept wire, Zelle, PayPal. I’m also open to, and much prefer, a face-to-face in Los Angeles or Orange County.

Plenty of references on various forums, and can provide as needed. Please buy with confidence. All sales are final.
