Rolex Submariner 1680 "Red Submariner"

Released in the mid 1960's, the reference 1680 is the first Submariner Rolex released with a date wheel. The early models of this watch feature the word "Submariner" in red on the dial. The "Red Sub" or "Single Red" has long been a favorite of collectors. All 1680's have a distinct 3mm raised acrylic crystal with a magnifying cyclops at the 3 o'clock, which makes it easily recognizable among vintage Submariners. Another interesting fact about the 1680 is that is run by a Rolex self-winding calibre 1575 movement, however at first glance, you will the see the rotor bridge is stamped 1570. This is due to Rolex continuing to use interchangeable parts after addition of the date function.

This watch features a Mark IV matte black dial.   The Mark VI dial can be distinguished by the "Feet before Meters" display, the open "6's," and the red lettering of the word "Submariner" being printed on top of white.  This dial is in excellent condition. Its tritium markers are fully intact and have aged to a beautiful creamy color.

    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.
