About this watch

This lovely Rolex Submariner ref 1680 dates to 1978 which makes it among the last of this reference which was replaced the following year, the 1680 is famous for being the reference of the very desirable single red Submariner although these days they carry a hefty price tag so I am pleased that this excellent piece can be much more affordable whilst still being a very attractive vintage Sub in fact with examples like this available I am still puzzled over the clamour for mass produced modern pieces.

The standout feature on this piece has to be the completely original matt dial with its beautiful creamy tritium hour markers. If you look very closely you can see that the bezel shows some slight signs of wear but I can forgive this as the pearl matches the tritium in the hour markers.

Th case is in great condition with clearly defined lugs etc as is the Bracelet ref 93150 with divers extension clasp and correct 580 end links
