Rolex Submariner 1680 "Red Submariner"

By Paul Altieri

The 1680 reference was produced by Rolex from 1969 to 1979 in this configuration with an acrylic crystal until it was switched over to the sapphire crystal common on all modern submariners. The vibrant red lettering that was available during this era has captured the attention of collectors in recent years and has sent the prices on good, clean examples soaring. Collectible and functional at the same time, it is never a bad idea to pick up a vintage Submariner.

A 3.3 million serial, this 1972 Submariner is a beautiful piece. The case has recently been polished and stuns with its clean lines.  The red letter, mark IV dial is in good shape with hour markers that have aged to a nice eggshell patina. There is a small chip at 12 and minor oil spots around some hour markers. The handset has aged in conjunction with the dial so they match the patina very well. The calendar disc is the correct silver color for this model and the replaced bezel also shows signs of light aging but complements the case nicely. The 93150 oyster bracelet has 13 links and is in fantastic condition with a minimum of stretch. Long considered a work horse of the Rolex professional series, the 1680 model is as classic as it is dependable. Don’t let this one get away.  If you have any questions feel free to contact Larry at [email protected].

    Good Every Day Watch

    A little late on my review but I thought better late than never. I purchased this watch as an every day timepiece and couldn't be happier. I wear it everywhere and it still looks and functions great.

    Everything is fantastic, box, papers, warrenty, tags.... But the bracelet has been polished, while it said it didn't, and the watch itself has many more little and light scratches that I didn't expect, for me it's condition 2,not 1,as you said..... Not very happy about it..... Best regards. Jacopo anticoli

    This was the most seamless and transparent buying experience. I purchased the watch on a Monday night and received it on Wednesday morning. I cannot be more pleased with both the purchasing process and the outcome.
