Up for grabs is a Rolex Submariner Date in steel

16800 reference

7.2 mil serial number circa 1981 production

Excellent vintage condition case with thick and even lugs and crown guards. Serial and reference numbers are fully intact and clearly visible. 

Dial is original, matte with very attractive heavy cream patina on all plots and original hands. The dial has color change happening but I will not call it “tropical”, but its clearly not black anymore, either. There is a spot on dial by 11 oclock. The hands are original with some oxidation on metal parts. No relume, no refinish. Original date disk with open 6’s and 9’s. 

Bezel insert has a blueish hue to it. 

Caseback is original, stamped 16800 inside. 

Bracelet is a Rolex 93150 and is original with correct date code. The bracelet has been tightened. 

No box or papers.
