Vintage Rolex "Red Submariner" 1680

For the first few years of the ref. 1680 production the word "Submariner" was printed in red. The "Red Submariner" has become a highly prized and collectible model. Some Rolex collectors consider the Red Sub the entry point into "serious" collecting. It is the first Submariner to feature a date window, as well as the cyclops lens above it. The crystal is also raised 3mm above the case. This unique feature makes this model particularly recognizable.

All red submariner models contain a 1575 caliber movement. However, the rotor bridge is stamped 1570. The 1575 is the same movement as the 1570, except with the addition of the date function.

This 1680 features a Mark IV matte black dial. The Mark IV dial was the first to use "feet first" and the last to have the red lettering on top of white. It's pronounced open 6's are another of its defining characteristics. It has light creamy markers with beautifully matching hand.

This watch is particularly special due to the original box and papers package. It comes with the original punched papers, chronometer certification papers, wallet, and punched Rolex Oyster booklet. Packages containing both punched papers and booklet are often referred to as "doubled punched." The warranty papers state the watch was bought aboard the USS R.S. Edwards which helps make it a true part of American history.

This stunning watch is bound to be a truly treasured addition to any collection.
