A stunning and very complete 1988 Rolex Submariner 16803 (forerunner of the 16613) in 18K gold and stainless steel, fitted with stunning blue bezel and sparkling dark blue sunburst dial. This opulent diver is in mint condition; it appears to have been hardly worn. This is a more than full set with outer and inner box, Oyster booklet, Rolex wallet, Submariner booklet, a rare Rolex brochure, calendar, translation, Submariner anchor, unused caseback sticker, chronometer seal, original invoice from Inglis & Son (York) and the original Rolex warranty certificate, dated October 8th, 1988. A true collector's set.

Een bijzonder fraaie en zeer complete Rolex Submariner 16803 (voorloper van de 16613) uit 1988 (R-serie) met prachtige blauwe lunette en sprankelende donkerblauwe sunburst wijzerplaat. Deze luxe duiker lijkt nauwelijks gedragen en verkeert in overeenkomstige conditie; mint zouden wij zeggen. De set is bizar compleet en bestaat uit omdoos, doos, Oysterboekje, Submarinerboekje, zeldzame Rolex catalogus, chronometerzegel, Submariner anker, mapje, kalender, vertaling, leren Rolex portefeuille, losse casebacksticker, de originele rekening van Inglis & Son (York) en het originele Rolex garantiecertificaat, gedateerd op 8 oktober 1988. Landcode 160; Groot-Brittannië. Een prachtige verzamelaarsset.

Size guide for wristbands

1 | Lug width

The lug width is the width of the strap at the end that is attached to the watch. This is the interior distance between the two lugs (horn-like protrusions) on the watch casing. The strap will fit your watch only if the lug width of the watch is the same width as the strap.

2 | Buckle width

The buckle width is the width of the strap at the buckle end. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the width of the original buckle must be identical to the strap width. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.

3 | Strap length

The strap length is the combined length of the short strap side 3A (without buckle) and the long strap side 3B. For metal straps, the length of the strap including the clasp is measured in the closed position.

4 | Strap thickness

Strap thickness is the height of the strap. Many leather straps thin out towards the buckle end, or “taper”. If you want to keep your watch’s original buckle and replace only the strap, the strap thickness must match the height of the original buckle. For watches with folding clasps, please choose a strap specially made for your particular clasp.
