Rolex Submariner Date 18k Yellow Gold Tropical Dial ref 16808


When blue goes to honey…

We love Subs with tropical dials and they don’t get more colour-changed than this epic transitional 18kt yellow gold Submariner that has its original blue soleil dial fitted that has turned an incredible shade of honey yellow !

The case is in great condition, with thick and even lugs and crown guards.
The original blue bezel insert has gently faded, which is especially noticeable on the numerals, and it has the original tritium pearl.

The solid link yellow gold Oyster bracelet, ref 92903, is in good tight condition with solid endlinks stamped 46, a clasp stamped ‘K 6’ and would fit a wrist size up to 19.5 cm. The watch has been fully checked and regulated by our watchmaker.
