Up for grabs is a Rolex Submariner Date
Reference 168000 transitional model only made for about year. The only difference between 16800 and 168000 was the steel used on this watch, which was now the 914L stainless steel Rolex will use on 16610 model.
R59 serial number circa 1988 production
Excellent vintage condition case with thick lugs and crown guards. Clear numbers. The case is unpolished with factory finishes and chamfers present.
Dial is original with vivid patina on plots. Original hands. No relume, no refinish.
Bezel insert with original tritium pearl in excellent vintage condition.
Caseback sticker still remains.
Bracelet is original Rolex 93150 with 593 ends, 12 links, M date code, light stretch from use.
If you have been looking around for a 168000 you know most of these have poorly aged dials and polished down cases. This is a great opportunity to get a high quality and a well preserved one.
No box or papers.
