Our Opinion

Offered here is a superb example of the Rolex MKI Date Submariner 1680 manufactured circa 1979
This example has the correct MKI dial for its 612---- serial number. The 1680 Submariner is a truly impressive vintage icon. It was first introduced in 1966 as the highly collectable Red Writing Submariner & then progressing to the White Written Submariner in 1975 that stayed in production for approximately 4 years.
The condition of this vintage Date Submariner overall is good. The case has been lightly polished in the past, but still retains strong equal lugs & crown guards along with the brushed finish to the top edges & chamfers remaining very well defined, the bezel & insert have no major dings or scratches & compliment the general appearance of this Submariner. The matte black dial has faded to a beautiful consistency & is in great condition with no apparent flaws to the tritium hour plot markers & hands that are all matching in colour. The Plexi glass is the correct Top Hat type inclusive of the Cyclops date window for this model, it is also free of any detrimental scratches or marks.
The watch comes on the correct type Rolex 93150 Oyster bracelet & 580 end links. The bracelet is stamped S advising it is a Rolex service replacement item, the bracelet is showing only light wear & minor stretch.
