Rolex Submariner Ref. 1680 “Red Sub”. Introduced in 1966, the 1680 is notable for its "Cyclops" date magnifier at 3 o'clock and the "Submariner" text on the dial, which could be in white or red print, depending on the specific variant, hence the nickname ‘Red Sub”


Here we have a “Red” dial that falls into the Mark V category: The first “Feet First” Dial that launched at the same time as the Mark IV, and is made by Bayeler instead of Singer. You can see that there is no white base layer under the red Submariner name here, and while the 6’s are officially open, the gap is far smaller and practically impossible to see without a loupe.


Circa 1973, this Submariner 1680 Red is in very good vintage condition, with a few marks on the top left lug near 10 o'clock. Fitted with matching 93150 bracelet with solid side links, the most robust and modern bracelet variant for the Submariner Ref 1680. The watch is accompanied its original box and our 24 months warranty.
