Rolex Submariner ref# 1680 White Mk 1 circa 1979


Vintage Rolex Submariner ref 1680 serial #6.1 million circa 1979. Featuring acrylic crystal, bi-directional elapsed time bezel and stunning original matte black dial with untouched ivory colored tritium hour markers and matching luminous hands. The white dial 1680 directly followed the famous Red Sub, and comes in three different dial variations. The current example Mk 1, shows a longer coronet at the top of the dial, the L in “ROLEX” being directly underneath that coronet, and lastly closed 6’s in the depth rating.

The condition of this original matte black dial is exceptional. The markers have turned a beautiful shade of warm, burnt cream, with original matching hands. About as pretty a 1680 as you are likely to find!

This watch is powered by caliber 1570 chronometer rated self winding movement with sweep seconds and date. With Rolex stainless steel ref 93150 heavy Oyster bracelet with flip lock clasp and 580 end pieces. The elapsed time insert is presumably a later service replacement with a replaced pearl. This watch has just been fully serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers and is in excellent operating condition and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate time keeping and operation.

Also accompanying your purchase is one our beautiful handmade Italian leather watch travel pouches, a $45 value.
