Lot Essay

In attractive overall condition, the present example of the highly coveted reference 1680 stands out through its clean and attractive dial with red Submariner script.

Nicknamed “Red-Sub” by Rolex collectors, the timepiece features attractive luminous accents that have aged to a uniform colour. Adding to the appeal is the well preserved stainless steel case with strong proportions, featuring clear reference and serial numbers. Overall, the present watch is a well preserved example of the celebrated reference 1680 “Red-Sub” offered with the Rolex Guarantee.

Introduced in late 1960s, the reference 1680 was the first Submariner to feature a date indicator as well as the cyclops magnifier. Distinguished by its red Submariner printing to the dial, the “Red Sub” has become a cult classic.
