Vintage Rolex Submariner 1680

It was very common for Rolex to change and update watches when they come in for routine service and that is exactly what happened to this watch. These all serviced up examples offer a great value and are ideal for daily wearers. This one with the "Swiss only" dial will still glow in the dark because of the Luminova luminous material used. These offer the perfect blend of modern and vintage all wrapped into one.
