Vintage Watch Condition Examination:

This Submariner is in overall great vintage condition. The case has some wear, scratches, and nicks. The bezel insert is in good condition with some light wear and scratches; is it s a later replacement. The dial is in attractive condition with light wear and patina; the dial has some noticeable wear/ paint loss around the edge of the dial near six o'clock. The lume on the dial has aged to a lovely pale yellow color. The red "Submariner" text has remained vibrant. The hands have developed patina and the lume in the hands has aged darker than the lume on the dial. The bracelet is in great condition with light stretch between the links.  

Description: Rolex "Red" Submariner 1680

Rolex introduced the reference 1680 around 1969 and it was in production until roughly 1979. This was the first Submariner to feature the date function and Rolex still offers date and no-date models to this day. This example has the word "Submariner" written in red text and collectors refer to these as the "Red Submariner." Rolex did this until around 1975 and then they switched to all white text. 

This Submariner is in overall attractive condition and offers a great value. The lume has aged to an attractive pale yellow color which pairs nicely with the vibrant red "Submariner" text on the dial. The watch features a Mark VI dial and this dial variation is distinguished by the feet first depth rating with closed 6s in the depth rating.

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.
