Vintage Rolex Submariner 1680 18k Gold

By Paul Altieri 

The 1680 model was the first Submariner model to have a calendar function indicating the date of the month; it also was also the first Submariner to be manufactured with a solid 18k gold case and bracelet. This particular timepiece has a unique twist however, in that the previous owner exchanged the 18K oyster bracelet for a genuine 18k gold president version with minor stretch. Not offered from the factory in this configuration, this is a beautiful combination as it truly dresses up what is normally a very sporty watch.  

The original, deep, blue dial has the raised, round and rectangular-shaped hour markers referred to as the “nipple dial” by most collectors. It does show some signs of age in the form of minor damage around the hour markers but the light patina to the luminous markers and matching handset more than makes up for this.

This timepiece, originally crafted in 1979, sports the sturdy 1575 movement that was just overhauled and is timing beautifully and the case is in excellent condition while showing off its sharp lug bevels very well. The bezel insert is a nicely aged newer insert.
