Rolex Submariner 1680 "Red Submariner"

By Paul Altieri,

Outstanding Opportunity to acquire a great example vintage Rolex Red Submariner 1680 with a perfect matching patina dial and hands.  Like most of our watches, this watch came from its original owner who purchased it back in 1971. 

Introduced around 1967, the reference 1680 was the first Submariner model to be fitted with a date function. The model was normally cased in stainless steel. Early examples displayed a ‘meters first’ depth rating, with the ‘Submariner’ script printed in red, hence the iconic name "Red Submariner". 


The present example is fitted with a Mark 5 dial, displaying the 'feet first'. The 6 is 'open', and the depth rating is very thin. All these attributes are correct for the serial number. The tritium has aged to a beautiful yellow creamy color. The case is preserved in excellent and sharp condition, featuring strong beveled edges. 

Most impressive is the "complete" nature of this watch. It is accompanied by its original punched guarantee along with its fitted presentation box.
