About this watch

The Rolex submariner ref 1680 is arguably one of the most important references in  Submariner history, introduced in 1967 it was the first time a Submariner was seen with the addition of a date. This stunning example dates to 1973 making it one of the first to be seen with the now familiar format of the word Submariner in white text.

The standout feature on this piece has to be the matt dial with its beautiful creamy tritium hour markers.

The case is in great condition with clearly defined lugs etc as is the expanding rivet Rolex bracelet.

The Cal 1570 automatic movement has just been fully serviced and comes with our full 12 months guarantee.

Anyone looking for the perfect 50th birthday gift should look no further, what’s better than a truly remarkable vintage Submariner complete with serial number and papers confirming manufacture in 1973! The watch also comes with Rolex service papers dated July 2006 and Rolex box.

A delightful vintage sub date fully serviced and ready to wear, compete with box and papers from 1973 I doubt I will have this for long.

This piece is in stock and ready for worldwide shipping.
