Offered for sale is an extremely beautiful example of a Rolex Submariner ref. 1680 Red Letter. With serial 3405xxx, this piece dates from 1973 and it is part of the rare batch MK IV. The awesome patina on the lume dots, along with the perfectly matching patina on the hands, contrast with the mint black matte color and the red accent on the Submariner printing making this Mark 4 dial with open 6 just stunning.


Not only the dial of this example makes it special; the original and rotating diver bezel has a correct fat font insert with matching patina pearl and has evenly faded.


But there’s more to add, the case has very sharp bevels. The serial and reference numbers remain clearly visible.


It comes suited on the original Rolex 9315 bracelet with 380 endlinks.


The watch has been fully serviced by our watchmaker and it is running great and keeping good time.


Inner case back and movement pictures are available under request.
