Offered here is an excellent example of a full set Rolex ‘Single Red’ Submariner with MKVI dial, reference 1680 manufactured circa 1973.
The 1680 Submariner is a truly impressive vintage icon. It was first introduced as the highly collectable Red Writing Submariner in 1969. It included the date function, not as previous Submariners like the 5512 and 5513. Then progressed to the White Written Submariner in 1975/76 that stayed in production for approximately for another 5 years.
This ‘Single Red VI Dial’ differentiates itself from the other ‘Single Red’ dial variants with the following which can be seen in the text located above the 6 o’clock, starting with its serial number 330**** that falls in the correct range for this type of dial which starts in the 3 million range and ends at 4 million. The Mark VI dial has a feet-first depth rating, red lettering that is printed directly on the dial as opposed to over white text. The “6” in the depth rating are closed as opposed to open and the “S’ looks rounded and not flat like the other MK variants of the Red Submariner dial.
The overall condition of this vintage ‘Single Red’ Submariner is very good. The case has been lightly polished in the past but retains strong equal lugs and crown guards along with the brushed finish to the top edges and chamfers remaining very well defined, the original thick font bezel insert has faded to a stunning blue/grey colour and has no dings or scratches and compliments the appearance of this vintage Submariner.
The matte black dial has slightly faded to a beautiful consistency and is in very good condition with no flaws to the tritium hour plot markers and 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 a later type of Rolex 93150 Oyster bracelet and hollow end links, the bracelet is showing only light wear and minimal stretch.
This stunning vintage ‘Single Red Submariner’ comes as a full set and is accompanied by its original boxes, manuals, document wallet and guarantee/certificate.
