1984 Rolex Submariner 16800 Matte Dial, Ghost Bezel

Views: 796


Up for grabs is a Rolex Submariner Date in steel

16800 reference

8.2 mil serial number circa 1984, the last year of matte dial production

Excellent vintage condition case with thick and even lugs. Serial and reference numbers are fully intact and clearly visible. No corrosion or pitting. 

Dial is original, matte with nice yellow patina on plots. There is some partial tritium loss on some plots, but still shows up very well and there is no damage on dial in form of chipping or scratches or drag marks. Hands are tritium and not longer glow in dark, but probably earlier service replacement due to lack of patina. Original date disk with open 6’s and 9’s. 

Bezel is very attractive with “ghost fade” 

Caseback is original, stamped 16800 inside. 

Bracelet is a Rolex 93150 with 11 links, 593 ends, diver’s extension and I date code, which is period correct for the watch. 

No box or papers. No documented service history.
