Rolex Submariner Ref. 16803 ‘Purple dial’
Bring some color to your life with this amazing purple Sub!
This 16803 from 1988 is all about color and contrast. Cool steel combined with warm yellow gold. A bright blue bezel, but most importantly: an amazing purple dial. There is a large variety in the way these dials discolor over time. Some go grey, others go lavender, this one turned a lovely deep purple.
The reference 16803 is not only the first two-tone Submariner but also one that went deeper than its predecessors. This one could handle pressures down to 300 meters, where others maxed out at 200. Quite a significant reference in the fabled history of the Sub then!
