The reference 16 808 remained in production until the 1987 and added the novelty of the sapphire crystal instead of the classic plexiglass one. It was realized in 18k yellow gold and is considered as one of the most precious Submariners produced by Rolex at that time. The present watch is distinguished by its beautifully aged blue bezel, which maintained its original vivid color wonderfully harmonizing with the blue brushed dial. Preserved in good overall condition, with beautiful case and sharp edges, the present watch can be considered a rare find for the aficionado of the Submariner.
