This Rolex Submariner 16808 is the luxurious yellow gold version of the iconic and coveted diver's watch.

The five-digit reference 16808 was produced in the 1980s and is particularly popular with collectors. It is the so-called transitional reference that still has the vintage look of its predecessor models due to the beautiful tritium lume. At the same time, the modern 3035 automatic movement offers helpful functions that make everyday use easier. For example, the Ref. 16808 offers the option of setting the date directly in the second crown position. This movement also has a hacking second function for setting the time to the second.

The attractive combination of the gold case and the black dial gives this Submariner a superb look. Whether the cream-colored luminous material, the gold-colored print or the iconic Mercedes hands, all the elements harmonise wonderfully with each other and create a high-contrast overall picture.
