About this watch

I have long been a fan of the nipple dial Rolex’s although they are much more commonly seen on the Gmt models, however this 18ct gold Submariner takes it to another level completely.

The reference 1680/8 was produced in relatively small numbers between 1969 and 1979 this example is among the last produced having a serial number 5996XXX dating it to 1979

The gold case is in superb condition as is the bezel and the original dial has aged to a unique even matt finish which highlights the gold hour markers superbly.

The 18ct gold bracelet has had some minor repairs on the inside of the links directly joining the solid end links but other than that it remains tight. The bracelet fits a 19.5 cm wrist comfortably without using the wet suit extension in the clasp which would take the wrist size to a approx. 220mm

Cal 1575 automatic movement keeps great time having been recently serviced and carries our full 12 months guarantee.

The watch comes with Rolex service receipt dated 1999 and vintage Rolex box .

This is a watch worthy of any collection and a superb investment opportunity.
