Rolex Submariner 1680 Red Submariner

perfect mark v dial - unpolished case - box and papers

This is a Rolex Red Submariner 1680 from the early 1970's with a perfect dial, unpolished case and original accessories.

The Rolex Submariner is a diving watch with a long tradition and great historical relevance not only for the watch industry. The Submariner ref. 1680 was produced from 1967 to 1980 and was the first Rolex Submariner with a date display. Until 1974, the model name "Submariner" was printed in red on the dial. In this short production period of about 7 years, there were 6 dial variants of the Red Submariner. Here you can see the Mark V version, which can be identified by the "feet-first" depth specification "660 ft = 200 m" with open 6's.

Manufactured in 1972, this watch comes with its original chronometer certificate and other accessories such as an old Rolex box, Submariner anchor, service receipt from 1992 and more. Despite its old age, the watch is overall preserved in great condition. The matte black dial has no flaws. The tritium lume is original showing matching colors in hands and hour markers. The original diver's bezel is also very well preserved and has retained its rich black color to this day.

Another important criterion of a collectible vintage Submariner is its case condition. With this watch we see a full profile case with intact lugs and light signs of wear. The case is unpolished. Both the reference and the serial number can be read between the lugs. The date III/71 (third quarter 1971) is written on the case back. The rare Oyster bracelet has the matching reference 9315 for the Red Submariner. The rare "patent pending" clasp also bears the matching date stamp 4/71. All numbers are matching the year of manufacture of the watch.

The Red Sub houses the Rolex 1570 automatic caliber, which offers a date display and a hacking seconds function. It operates perfectly and reliably.

Overall, this Rolex Submariner 1680 is a beautifully preserved vintage classic in its coveted rare version accompanied by the original accessories.
