ROLEX SUBMARINER REF. 1680 RED MF MK 2
The Rolex Submariner 1680 was the first Submariner model to feature a date function.
It was produced from 1968 to 1976. The main difference between the last and the first series is the famous red lettering on the dial, which can be found only on the first examples manufactured like the one we offer for sale. The specimens coming with this exclusive feature are certainly the most sought-after among collectors of vintage Rolex sport watches.
All the components of this 1680 we offer for sale match the production period: Mk2 meter first tritium dial, Mk3 inlay, 1680 III /69 signed caseback, 1570 COSC caliber, Triple lock crown, 9315/280/70 bracelet. Case is in exceptional condition: probably never touched, with sharp lugs. The dial is in mint condition and the tritium markers have taken on a charming yellow patina. A very high quality example of reference 1680, an opportunity not to be missed by the collector looking to add a watch to his vintage Rolex collection.
Serial Number 2,292,XXXX, Year 1969.
