Comments The reference 16800 Submariner was first released in 1978 as an update to the reference 1680. It remained in production for a full decade until it was later replaced by the reference 168000. While it improved substantially upon its predecessor, the reference 16800 is known as a “transitional” Submariner because it paired new features and specifications with characteristics from the previous generation.

This example features the uncommon Matte Dial which is in pristine original condition. The hands are later from service, the case featuring thick lugs and a normal amount of wear. The watch is near unpolished, accompanied by it's original period correct box, booklet and punched warranty papers dated 1983.
