Honestly how would you rate my 16800

I was wondering what kind of shape my watch is in it’s from 1985. I know it has a service dial.

Seems like the lugs has been re-cut or similar. Here you can see a NOS 16800 for comparison:

Looks fine, but you'll get nit-pickers here, including me.

That case looks a little over-polished, especially the crown guards, and the chamfers on the lugs appear too wide for this reference.

I wouldn't sweat it. It's a classic Sub. Enjoy.

Who the hell cares what others think?

You love it, that's what matters!

Great classic, use it and abuse it.

Looks bloody awful, send it my way ;)

EDIT: It looks fantastic, honestly doesn't show that age at all.

It’s a piece to be worn, not a collectible, so just enjoy it
