Rules: Postings must be an ad announcing an intent to sell, buy or trade. Full item description and photo(s) must be posted within the message here, not as links to other websites.

In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price. Commercial dealers are limited to three unique posts per day. [More...]
The stunning and rare transitional gloss dial has taken on a matte look as a result of oxidation which is common in the triple zero references. The dial has taken on a subtle but respectable patina and the lume has taken on a wonderful cream like patina. The lume plots match the hands perfectly, a testament to the fact that the dial is original and free of any service parts. Additionally,The original tritium lume used on the 168000 has about a twenty-year lifetime.
The movement has been regularly serviced throughout its lifetime and the movement was fully overhauled in February of 2019 by a skilled watchmaker in New Hampshire, for a total of $950. The watch keeps exquisite time, ± 3 seconds/day, which is an incredible feat for a Submariner of this age.
The 168000 is very rare by nature as a result of its short-lived production, and it is becoming increasingly collectible. If you are looking for a rare sub that will appreciate in the near future or a birth year sub, this may be your only chance for a while.
