Hey all,

In the future I'd like to get my hands on a Submariner 16800 feom my birth year (1983).

I'd like to know what to expect if I want an all original watch. Was it Tritium hands and markers? If it's not, is it that a dial replacement was done? Were there holes in the lugs? Is there a date and on-sale sub? Is there a cyclops?

I looked a bit and it seems the price would be around 5k. Does it seem right?

Anything else I should be looking for?

Thanks for your answers.

I had one back in 1984. If I remember correctly it had a saphire crystal, tritium markers (painted not applied) and hands, and drilled lugs. I'll let the Rolex masters chime in on some of the other details. It was a great watch.
