  • Neo vintage subs have taken off lately and with good reason, combining the best of vintage asthetic with a cleaner and more functional everyday wearer, with character!

    Following on from the 1680, the 16800 is a more wearable neo vintage with white gold surrounds on the hour markers.

    The patina on this transitional sub is a starting to turn colour due to the tritium material used from the period. The case is thick and shows original bevels, a strong factor on this model.

    The Insert is in  very good vintage condition, and the tritium pearl is turning yellow. 

    Watch comes on 93150 bracelet. Correct open 6/9 date wheel. If you were born in 1987 and are looking for a birth year watch you need this - one of the nicest examples I’ve seen in a long time!
