Offered for sale is an extremely beautiful example of a Rolex Submariner ref. 1680 Red. With serial 3816xxx, this piece dates from 1974 and it is part of the very last batch MK6. The awesome patina on the lume dots, along with the perfectly matching patina on the hands, contrast with the mint black matte dial. The red accent on the Submariner printing gives it a distinctive look making this Mark 6 dial just stunning. Condition is flawless, with no marks or stains (anything you see is on the crystal plexi).


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.


But there’s more to add, the  case presents very sharp lugs with well defined chamfers.


The serial and reference numbers remain clearly visible in between lugs.


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.
