This vintage Rolex Submariner "Single Red" is a perfect example of why people rush to add these historic timepieces to their collection.
Early examples, known as the “Red Submariner” (produced through until 1973), are by far the most collectible reference 1680's. In total seven dial variations of the Rolex Red Submariner 1680 were produced with subtle differences in typeface, the positioning of meters versus feet of depth rating, and other intricacies, but across the board that rare and subtle touch of red on the dial makes these variants much more desirable amongst collectors.
This particular watch's stainless steel case is in great condition with some wear and its bezel insert is nicely aged. If you have any questions about this watch, shoot us an email or give us a call - we would love to talk to you about this watch.
